StarCraft II patch 3.13.0 is the thirteenth major patch since patch 3.0.0.


  • A new Commander, “Fenix”, has been added to Co-op Missions.
    • The main focus of playing Fenix is the direct control of his hero unit, which holds immense amounts of power when all three of his Purifier Suits are leveraged to their full potential.
    • Up to six different A.I. personalities from various Protoss heroes can be researched at the Purifier Conclave (once unlocked). Once a personality has been researched, it will automatically search for a standard unit to transfer into, and turn them into a game-changing hero unit.
    • Fenix is available as a standalone purchase for all players.
    • For more information, see our blog.
  • A new Co-op Mission, “Scythe of Amon”, has been added.
