SC2: Heart of the Swarm

02 June 2011
Days of rumours, leaked releases, and the usual mix of lies and missinformation - Blizzard has finally came out and made a full on preview page regarding Starcraft 2's second campaign in the planned trillogy - Heart of the Swam. Big news is - Kerrigan is clearly back, something certainly happend when that Xel'Naga artifact went off at the end of the first campaign - Wings of Liberty - as the Queen of Blades is no more and the Kerrigan you see in the reveal is what we now have. What exactly went on, we may never know, at least not until Heart of the Swarm is released. In the preview missions which can be found over at Blizzard's official HotS page. Kerrigan can be seen actively trying to regain control of the Zerg Broods, which have scattered into isolation after the demise of the Queen of Blades. Along with gathering the Broods together, there is glimpses of further genetic mutations for Zerg units than what we have ever seen before...while she may no longer be know as the Queen of Blades...has Kerrigan turned into something more dangerous than anyone ever expected? We'll have to wait and see when Heart of the Swarm is release on....well released on typical Blizzard "when its ready" time line - some things never change...

More on the Heart of the Swarm front comes in the form of what was, in my opinion, the way developers should always interact with the community. There was not just a boring press release and a FAQ made regarding the Heart of the Swarm preview, but the guys from Blizzard actually invited over some of the bigger websites for SC2 news to thier offices and did a live, uncut, Q&A session which was all caught on camera. Scott Mercer, David Kim, Chris Sigaty, and Dustin Browder are the line-up for Blizzard, and below is a good brief summary of what was asked in the Q&A. Those wanting the full, hour long uncut footage, can find that HERE. Big thanks go to Diggity and Wellplayed.org for making this footage avaliable to the public

Also last but not least Husky and Day[9] announced just today that a new GeForce Pro/Am tournament will be coming very soon - info all in the next vid. We'll be sure to keep up to date with this new tournament on the GG Rated show, which you can find at GGratedTV every Monday at 1:00 EST / 21:00 CET / 20:00 GMT.
