Once again, Lavarinth manages to stall on creating Podcasts as IskatuMesk constantly harasses him to sit down and record. After finally pulling all his hair out launching the new Campaign Creations site, Lavarinth accepts his annual duty to join the not-so-round table and have a chat with IskatuMesk. In his clear attempt to be professional, he even manages to mess up the recording volume, making IskatuMesk reverb in the recording. Pushing through, the duo discuss the site, content, staff, games, and editing goals and values for new and existing modders.


Tracer, the time-jumping adventurer from Overwatch, is getting ready to make her Heroes of the Storm debut! Equipped with the chronal accelerator designed by her gorilla scientist pal Winston and a pair of deadly pulse pistols to match, this highly mobile ranged Assassin zips around the Battlegrounds of the Nexus, catching enemy heroes off guard and then vanishing before they have a chance to react.

OutsiderXE, creator of numerous Warcraft III campaigns, has released his latest work - a Co-op Campaign titled Shadow of the Xel'Naga.

"StarCraft II: Shadow of the Xel'Naga is a custom campaign for the award-winning Real-Time-Strategy game StarCraft II, created with the StarCraft II Editor. All 7 maps were released on November 27th, 2015. They are available on the StarCraft II Arcade, free for everyone."

Based on the like-named StarCraft novel written by Gabriel Mesta, the project features gameplay covering a variety of genres. It can be accessed through the Arcade directly within Starcraft 2, and does not require a retail version of the game to run, only the starter version.

More information can be accessed on OutsiderXE's portfolio site, including screenshots and a complete video playthrough.
Blizzard Entertainment announced this past Tuesday that StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void, the third game in its acclaimed StarCraft II real-time strategy series, has warped in to retailers around the world and is now available in the Battle.net Shop.

You are Hierarch Artanis, leader of the mighty protoss race. Years ago, your homeworld of Aiur fell to the merciless zerg Swarm. Now, at long last, you have raised a powerful fleet of warships known as the Golden Armada, and are poised to reclaim your world. But an ancient evil—Amon—threatens this destiny and the fate of the entire galaxy. Only you can reunite the protoss factions and defeat the coming darkness before it consumes all life in the sector.

Starcraft II was just updated with the LotV pre-patch. It brings the new CASC archive format and a 64-bit client among other things. You can find the patch notes here.

It's also deleting map and mod folders out of the games directory again. I would recommend backing up everything before updating if you don't already have backups.

Blizzard had a reveal event on twitch earlier today for both the release date and opening cinematic of LotV. It's currently available to pre-order on their store which grants you beta access and a 3 mission prologue campaign involving Zeratul. Purchasing LotV also grants access to Artanis in Heroes of the Storm when he is available.
The upgrade is completed and the forum is now accessible. Thank you for your patience!




The Campaign Creations forum will be undergoing some extreme forum upgrading. We apologize, but this may involve taking the forum down for an extended period of time. During the process, the forum may be live at times for testing purposes, however until this post states the update is complete, we cannot guarantee any content, post, or threads to be retained if you post during temporary uptime.

This upgrade is an extreme version change in phpBB and will break current mods we have installed. In addition, it will break the layout we are currently having. In the spirit of having the forum live as soon as possible, once upgrading is completed, there may be live forum theme changes occurring from a default phpBB theme to the traditional Campaign Creations theme. Please work with us in accepting this temporary issue, but rest assured posting as normal will function and in due time the forum will return to its original appearance to the best of our ability.

We have one major mod that may affected during this process: The Blog feature. We will do all in our power to get this mod to continue to function, however we apologize if the creator of the mod has not crafted a working version of this mod with the latest update. If the mod fails to cooperate, we will be retaining the data for the unforseen future in the hopes the developer of the mod will update it properly.

Thank you for understanding.
