StarCraft II: Wings Of Liberty Comes With Protoss "Mini-campaign"

Fans of StarCraft's Protoss may not have to wait until 2011 - or later - to get their hands on the teleporting, psionic blade-wielding alien race. The Protoss will apparently get their own mini-campaign in the first part of StarCraft II's trilogy.

While we weren't expecting to take control of the Protoss in anything but multiplayer until StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void shipped, looks like we're getting a small taste of the faction's single-player action this year.

A Blizzard employee writes on the official forums "there will be a Protoss mini-campaign that lets you control Protoss units" in StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, the Terran third of the campaign.

"This part of the campaign mode is of course way shorter than the Terran part, but it is very fun to have a very different playstyle to add even more variety to the game," wrote the Blizzard Europe RTS Community Team member.

Just don't expect it to go too far beyond "mini". "That being said, the Protoss mini-campaign will not prepare you for the multiplayer as Protoss, you won't be using all units or getting to know buildings and upgrades," indicated the Blizzard staffer.

    The order of the campaigns is still Terran, Zerg then Protoss right? Can't expect the Protoss campaign to release next year then.

    not to be a downer, but this was already known 2 blizzcons ago

      We did not know of any campaign for Protos until the third game. This mini campaign is new and great news.

    Awww we can all feel better now right Blizzard?

    Get stuffed.

    Yes, that totally makes up for the lack of LAN

      Wouldn't surprise me if someone finds a workaround to get it working over a LAN. I mean they've managed to do it for steam games, and illegal servers for such games. I think getting around may be a bigger challenge, but hold out hope that some pirates out there are nice enough to give us that option.
