StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void has been finally announced to be released on November 10th, 2015, with three separate editions set to be released.

First off, the Standard Edition is available for pre-purchase now for a cost of $40, as well as an optional Digital Deluxe upgrade for $60, "... which unlocks a variety of in-game bonuses for Blizzard games (available upon Legacy of the Void’ s release), including an Archon battle pet for World of Warcraft ®, a Void Speeder mount in Heroes of the Storm, and a Protoss-themed card back in Hearthstone ®: Heroes of Warcraft ." 

The Collector's Edition is a in-store exclusive purchase, and will be on sale for $80. Everything included in the Digital Deluxe will come 'equipped' in the Collector's Edition, as well as some other goodies such "... as a special edition of the full-color hardcover StarCraft Field Manual, [and] a DVD loaded with cinematics and special features; and a CD soundtrack."As seen in the above cinematic, the final expansion to StarCraft II will focus on the Protoss race, with the cinematic itself showing the Protoss struggling to reclaim their homeworld from the Zerg. 

There are also two new modes that will be introduced to the StarCraft multiplayer scene. The Archon mode will have two players controlling one base while trying to compete against another team of two doing the same thing. The Co-op Missions mode has two players completing a series of missions that will focus on going "... through a series of challenging scenarios together, leveling up their commanders’ capabilities as they progress."

With the release of the expansion StarCraft II will also have automated tournaments for the first time, a feature which will allow players with "... exciting ongoing events that support the competitive StarCraft II community."
