Mark your calendars for the next expansion of our favorite sci-fi strategy game, StarCraft II. On March 12, 2013, Blizzard Entertainment will release StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, the second of the StarCraft II trilogy that everyone’s probably been waiting for!
Throughout my StarCraft gaming experience, I mostly play the Zerg colony so I’m particularly happy about this expansion and I’m expecting a lot from the campaign side of it (because I never played the multi-player since SC2 came out).
StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, as the title states sets with the broods of the Zerg swarm, after the in the Zergs got separated due to the lack of queen to unify them. With the player perspective of Kerrigan, she comes in and is seeking out brood per brood to advance their evolution. We’ll get 20 missions in total for this expansion.
Here’s the story synopsis from the main site:
The Queen of Blades is gone. On the hellish planet Char, Jim Raynor harnessed the power of an ancient XelNaga artifact in a desperate bid to stop the zerg Swarm from overrunning the Koprulu sector, and the artifact restored Sarah Kerrigan to her human form. Without their queen to guide and unify them, the Swarm has fractured into several broods scattered throughout the Koprulu sector. One of the greatest threats to the galaxy has been neutralized… or so it seems.
Sarah Kerrigan is on the loose. Even without the terrible powers of the Queen of Blades or the might of the Swarm at her command, the former Ghost remains a foe not to be taken lightly. But if the artifact really did set her free, then why is Kerrigan seeking out zerg broods scattered throughout the Koprulu sector? What happened to Jim Raynor? Is she still pursuing her quest for vengeance, or has her transformation given Kerrigan a new purpose?
Who is Sarah Kerrigan?
Excited? Me too! To find out more details you can scoot over to the official site, here.
