The brood rejoices. It need not be uttered, for all Cerebrates and Overminds across the galaxy know it, but this day spawns forth a mighty new addition to the hive in the form of Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm.
Kerrigan has arrived, and with the help of her brood, she aims to take down Arcturus Mengsk once and for all.
"Heart of the Swarm enhances every aspect of StarCraft II," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “In addition to Kerrigan's campaign and the new multiplayer units and maps, we think players will really enjoy the new online elements and new features that make StarCraft II more fun and easier to learn than ever before."
Over the course of 20 campaign missions, players will follow Kerrigan as she sweeps across the galaxy, incorporating a variety of distinctive zerg species into her brood. Kerrigan will grow in strength from mission to mission, and players will be able to customize her with powerful new abilities, as well as evolve various zerg strains into fearsome new subspecies to suit their play style.
New weapons of war also debut in Heart of the Swarm's multiplayer, including new units such as Terran Hellbats, Zerg Swarm Hosts, and Protoss Tempests, while certain existing units from Wings of Liberty will be updated with new capabilities.
The world-wide invasion has begun, everywhere there are Standard, Collector and Digital Deluxe editions. To the ultimate glory of the collective, grow in your knowledge of them and all there is to conquer, in the official press release and preview guide.
