Watch Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm’s cinematic opening
Blizzard has released a video showing the cinematic opening to their upcoming Starcraft II expansion Heart of the Swarm, debuting on March 12.
Heart of the Swarm will reportedly answer many player questions, including “Who is Sarah Kerrigan?”
The expansion pack picks up from the story from where it left off:
The Queen of Blades is gone. On the hellish planet Char, Jim Raynor harnessed the power of an ancient Xel’Naga 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? Is she still pursuing her quest for vengeance, or has her transformation given Kerrigan a new purpose?
The popular sci-fi strategy game will be releasing another expansion pack, Legacy of the Void, in the near future.
