Are you ready for Legacy of the Void? You won’t have to wait long. After a couple of amazing games leading to the WCS finals, the Legacy of the Void opening cinematic for the Protoss campaign was finally revealed, along with the launch date. As a mind-blowing coincidence, the WCS finals were also between two Protoss players, home-crowd favorite Polish player, MaNa, and Lilbow, from France.

Keep in mind StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty launched summer 2010 and the Heart of the Swarm expansion came in spring 2013. So it’s been over 5 years now since the series started and we are now looking forward to its story’s epic conclusion. With Legacy of the Void, we will get to see the Protoss Golden Armada led by Hierarch Artanis trying to reclaim their home world of Aiur and face the dreaded Hybrid. The story is absolutely crazy, there has been mixed criticism from some of the fans, but overall, StarCraft 2 is THE absolute torchbearer to StarCraft: BroodWar, in terms of both single player and multiplayer. Now, without further ado, here is the epic cinematic and the launch date for your enjoyment.

What do you think? You’re quite lucky to see it as it is, since during the online reveal, the stream first went offline, then we were teased with other short videos and stories, and with the previous game cinematics, before finally seeing the Legacy of the Void opening cinematic. This created quite an uproar among the 84.000 people watching the stream which were being hyped beyond reason.

Legacy of the Void will also bring 6 new units for the multiplayer game, 2 for each race; the Disruptor and Adept for Protoss, the Cyclone and Liberator for Terran, and the Ravager and Lurker for Zerg, to improve on the already existing game-play mechanics and filling in new niches, which were unavailable before to the three warring races. Besides this, there will be new additions to multiplayer in terms of new modes of play, with automated tournaments and two different cooperative modes. With the single player campaign, the developers promise more story-telling cutscenes and explosive missions with new gameplay elements and it’s all coming November 10!

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Bandai Namco and Nike designed Tekken 8 sneakers with tag-team designs

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.

There will soon be a new book in Future Press’s Books of Knowledge series, which is FromSoftware’s officially licensed line of hardcover strategy guides. This will help players who are having trouble with Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. The base game came with two books, and now you can get the unholy trinity for $45 (or the equivalent amount in your currency). It will ship on September 30th.

Like the first two games, The Lands Between and Shards of Shattering, Shadow of the Erdtree is both a complete guide to how to play and a beautiful artbook with full-page pictures of enemies, landscapes, and weapons. This big book has 352 pages and is likely to sell out quickly, based on how quickly the ones that came before it did.

Do you know a lot about strategy guides? You could read the first two Books of Knowledge. If so, what did you think of them? Leave a comment below and let us know.
