  • The story begins with Kerrigan’s quest to assume leadership of the swarm in her regained human form, and exact her revenge on Arcturus Mengsk, Emperor of the Terran Dominion.

    StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm is an upcoming sequel and expansion pack to the military science-fiction real-time strategy game StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty and part two of the planned StarCraft II trilogy.
    No specific release dates have been announced so far, but based on hints from Blizzard, the game is likely to be released around April or Summer 2012!

    Starcraft 2: Heart of The Swarm lead writer, Brian Kindregan and Production Director Chris Sigaty talks about what we can expect from the game story, gameplay and characters in this interview!

    Unleash the devastating power of Sarah Kerrigan and advance the evolution of the Swarm to terrifying new heights.

    Key Features of Starcraft 2: Heart of The Swarm

    Here is a list of key features that will be available in Blizzard Entertainment’s Starcraft 2: Heart of The Swarm based on news and announcements made so far.

    New Units
    Heart Of The Swarm will feature 8 new multiplayer units, whilst removing 3.

    • The Terran race will feature three new units: the Shredder, the Battle Hellion, and the Warhound.
    • The Protoss will also feature three new units: the Replicant, the Oracle, and the Tempest.
    • The Zerg will receive two new units: the Viper and the Swarm Host.

    Protoss Mothership and Carrier, as well as the Zerg Overseer, will be removed from the game.

    New Abilities
    The Zerg Ultralisk and Baneling have received new abilities; the Ultralisk has a researchable ability that will allow it to burrow underground then shoot forward and unburrow, similar to the Protoss Zealot Charge ability.

    Changes to The Thor
    The Thor has been changed to an “ultimate” unit, akin to the Protoss Mothership limiting the player to have only one at a time. Its functionality will be changed, and it will not be able to shoot air units.
