The latest patch for StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void is already available, and it brings a number of new features to the table.

Most noticeable of the changes is the addition of a new commander, Alarak, for the co-op missions. Detailed over the official website, Blizzard confirmed that that Alarak will be the first commander that will be playable on the field. At the same time, he will have top-bar menu abilities.

As an offensive-oriented hero, Alarak will have low survivability when alone in the battle, but he will be the last unit to die as a highlord.


Those who are interested in getting Alarak can get him as a standalone purchase. There are also new emoticons coming for those who get Alarak.

The new patch also introduces Mist Opportunities, a new map for co-op missions.

"Egon Stetmann, stranded on Bel'shir since before the fall of Arcturus Mengsk, needs your help harvesting terrazine gas. Protect his automated Harvesting Bots, as they're the only friends he has left."

There's also a new section added for Multiplayer, which is the "Testing" Matchmaker. Available in the 1v1 testing, it is unranked and will not affect the player's Ranked MMR. Finally, Blizzard is also finally allowing players to create their own customized co-op mission challenges.

You can now select up to 10 mutators that can be added to each mission. However, the Custom Mutators mode will only be available to pre-made two-player parties.

Other changes rolled out with the patch involves changes with the commanders, co-op missions, editor, and a few bug fixes. All of these are listed in the link above.
