The UNN news anchor Donny Vermillion returns, and with him comes a new map for Starcraft Coop.
Based on the Wings of Liberty mission “The Devil’s Playground”, this mission sends you on the planet Viridium Prime to harvest so called “xenon crystals” before the planet explodes.
Just like on Redstone III, lava will rise on a regular basis, forcing you to bring your ground forces to safety before the lava incinerates your units, and in turn disrubting your harvest of xenon crystals.
Like with other coop missions, there is a bonus objective: In “The Vermillion Problem” you have to defeat a lava monster, which only appears when the lava level is high.

Blizzard revealed today the coming features of the next Patch for Starcraft Legacy of the Void.
3.3 will introduce two things: Mutators and Mastery Levels.
Spice up your games with the weekly mutator challenges, including but not limited to sleeping workers, invisible armies, tornados, fast enemies and infested zombies assaulting your base.
To make these challanges worth playing, playing commanders beyond level 15 will contribute to the mastery levels, which will give you points to spend to strengthen your units and abilities across commanders.
Finally, there is one small unmentioned reveal: the next commander to join the battle is Abathur, the evolution master mind behind the swarm.
