Campaign: missions as other races?

I liked the protoss missions and how they fit in well with the WoL storyline. Is there any chance of HoTS missions where we play as the Terran or Protoss for a short while?

Back in July 2012, after MLG, it was said in an interview there'd be at least one mission in HotS that you'll play as the non-Zerg faction.

It would make sense if there's some Terran cross-over, I think.

Protoss would never fight alongside Zerg, but given the situation with Kerrigan I think it's plausible we could see a situation where you at least temporarily ally with Terran somehow.

Yeah but people would point out what happened during the Brood War. They aren't going to agree to the alliance just because Kerrigan's appearance is different now.

I'm not sure if they'll do what I think they would do, but I was thinking it would be something like this.
WOL=Main Terran, side Protoss, HOTS=Main Zerg, side Terran, LOTV=Main Protoss, side Zerg.
This would be so that all races would be playable as a main and a side quest.
That's just my thoughts on the matter anyway.

I'm guessing it will be a mission with Raynor... or maybe the return of Duran? :)

You guys have too much hope of actual decent story telling. The story will be as bad as WoL so dont expect old characters or even good new ones.

Search "Starcraft 2: Flashpoint" .
Don't expect old characters?
  • Raynor
  • Mengsk

  • Narud/Duran
  • Kerrigan (is technically an old character)


  • As for missions, I can tell that there will be a few missions following the storyline that will involve Kerrigan and Raynor, possibly Valerian, in a battle on Korhal.

    Well I'd be very interested if we get to play as him or the hybrids, maybe we can see things from HIS POV for once.

    It was last June or July where they said that there'd be at least 1 mission that you play as another faction.

    In response to that, ZellBeast said this earlier, which is kind of logic i must say.

    I'm not sure if they'll do what I think they would do, but I was thinking it would be something like this.
    WOL=Main Terran, side Protoss, HOTS=Main Zerg, side Terran, LOTV=Main Protoss, side Zerg.

    Raynor's Raiders. seems like a strong option we'll get, exploring their side of things as Kerrigan works to reunite her Swarm, but it could be a similar case back in the old days when we sometimes control two different (race) bases situated by each other. That'll be fun.

    Zeratul would make another interesting case he were to make a return presence in HotS before he disappears for Shakuras and unite the divided protoss tribes. A continuation of his investigation with the Hybrid of some sort or major developments happening with the protoss race after giving out his Prophecy warning to Jim Raynor?

    If it's another Protoss mini campaign, it wouldn't surprise me. We only know Zeratul will appear in HotS. It hasn't been said just what role he'll be in.

    Right now I'm unsure, the latest interviews didn't say anything about playing as some other faction.

    If you have seen the various gameplay videos, at one point Kerrigan is interrogating a protoss higher-being and eventually sends this person onto a ship it seems. Could be a clue....

    Oh that, that's just Lessara. She was a Protoss scientist stationed on Kaldir. Kerrigan wanted all the Protoss killed there so they couldn't alert the fleets back at Shakuras, but Lessara was among those that survived and taken aboard the Leviathan.

    Come on, Blizzard doesn't need to spoil us about every mission feature. :p

    Nah, some what I've seen from the new fansite press that mission doesn't have us playing to protoss. Its still us being zerg. That larva becomes a queen and start infesting the specimens and protoss ship (while saving zerg prisoners) aboard the ship before eventually destroying it.
