StarCraft II: Soul Hunter Axed, Twilight Archon Featured
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Blizzard Entertainment has released some more information about units for the eagerly awaited StarCraft II. The official SC II website now offers more information about the Protoss Twilight Archon, including some footage of the unit slaying a group of marines.

In other unit news the Protoss Soul Hunter has been removed from the game as Blizzard continues the process of balancing and finalizing the unit roster for each race. In addition a bit more information about the Terran Thor unit has been revealed on the forums.

Twilight Archon
With the halves of the protoss race reunited, an archon can now be brought into being by the merging of two high templar, or two dark templar, or even the unification of a dark templar and a high templar. Although the protoss are loath to sacrifice valuable templar, those who do achieve this final level of commitment are forever honored in the memories of their people.
More about the Soul Hunter:
Sometimes units will get cut. For example, the Soul Hunter is not going to show at Blizzcon. He appears to have failed his training period. He was kind of cool, but not cool enough. Some other units that you have seen are going through some significant changes. They have adapted and may yet survive. Thats how we do it. Being able to try units out before we decide if they are going to be in the game or not is a huge advantage for our development process and its an opportunity that not every developer gets. Well give you more specific information on the Protoss as we figure it out. Even what you see at Blizzcon will be work-in-progress. After Blizzcon things will most definitely continue to evolve.
The Terran Thor:
The Thor will not be the Terran equivalent to the Protoss Mothership. In addition, you will be able to build more than one Thor. The Thor unit will not be the type of unit you'll want to march into the enemy base by itself.

More info about the Thor will be released later on.
