StarCraft 2 - Lead Co-op Designer interview
In Co-op Missions, players take on the role of various commanders from the StarCraft universe, each of them possessing unique abilities and upgrades and bestows special bonuses on their armies. Players are able to battle through a series of special scenarios together, leveling up their commanders’ capabilities as they progress. New abilities and units are unlocked as one progresses through the mode, along with gaining experience. Which missions are played can be chosen or randomly determined for bonus experience, and the computer opponent will utilize different strategies in each mission. Each race is available for each mission. In an upcoming patch, commanders will be able to be selected randomly.
