StarCraft 2: Legacy of the Void’s new unit hailed as Liberator
The battle is just beginning in StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void, but the number of units is starting to increase. Today, Blizzard unveiled the game’s newest Terran unit, a massive air vessel called the Liberator.
“The Liberator is a large, high-cost air unit that deals splash damage against its enemies in the sky,” explains the Battle.net post. “The Liberator normally can’t attack ground, but it can target a specific ground area in order to deal high burst single-target damage to any unit entering that area. This ground attack only targets units, so structures can’t be hit with this weapon.”
The Liberator will act a more rounded air unit to go along with some of the changes to the Legacy of the Void beta. Blizzard is aiming for diverse strategies with the addition of this unit and will be examining player strategies closely. For a better idea of how the Liberator unit works, check out the video below.
