Hey everyone . I was searching for StarCraft vids on YouTube and I came across this video!!!:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30MBljXxg3M

The video, from a CD-ROM slip-in from this month's PC-Gamer magazine, shows some new and returning Protoss Units, with changes to all :P. A new unit called the Soul Hunter is shown, followed by the Protoss Photon Cannons (now Phase Cannons) that can now turn into energy and be relocated at the player's will! Carriers are back with a new name and a design reminiscent of the Protoss ship design first seen in the opening cinematic of SC1, and Archon’s are IN (and have a new attack?). If you look closely throughout the vid you can also see Terran Firebats, High Templar (or w/e they will be called in SC2) and Protoss Reavers .

Some Unit Pix :

yea, the carriers look cooler, more mechanical-like and less organic, banana-like
i couldn't really see the interceptors though, kind of looked like shurikens, dunno

don't know about the soul hunters, they seem kind of boring..too many laser shooting units

Awesome video...

When they show the Twilight Archon, I think I also noticed a Reaver, no?
There also seems to be a small unit (smaller than the Soul Hunter?) attacking... Vindicator maybe?

Crap, if that is real, then, dang. Once this is confirmed, looks like there will be some additions to the Toss unit thread. But did yah notice the sheilds on the new Carriers, they looked quite impressive. And the Soul Hunter kinda reminds me of that new Toss unit that was goinging to be in Ghost, as both units seem to have a lighting-like weapon. Anyway, nice find. +rep to you!

Hmm, so, what, this makes 3-4 more units for the Toss then? Now, here is a question, wonder why the Archon is now called a Twilight Archon? Perhaps cause of the Toss being based on Shakuras now?

That's possible. Now that I think of it, one of the definitions of twilight is "the time of day immediately following sunset", so perhaps the term Twilight in the Archon's name indicates that it is indeed a dark hour for the Protoss .

(Check the top again for Unit Pics )

Hmm, very true. Most of their race was killed, the Dragoons, who have been upgraded to Immortals, will eventally be no more if Auir isn't retaken, their once massive empire shattered, etc. The Toss have had it rough, to say the least.
But anyway...
now that Carries have been seen, it looks like the Toss air force is going to be much more powerful then in SC1 powerful.

... or maybe they are a mix of High Templar & Dark Templar?
