Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Features Previewed

Blizzard Entertainment has put together a new preview of Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm to showcase the game’s support for e-sports and how its multiplayer features will accommodate competitive gamers online.

The video showcases some of the game’s new features, including the ability to join groups and clans; take command of a game while watching a replay, and even the ability to save a multiplayer game to resume at any time—an especially helpful feature that allows dropped games to resume.

Check out the video below for further details.

Heart of the Swarm will be available worldwide next month, on March 12. It’ll be available in both Standard and Deluxe editions. You’ll need an existing copy of Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty to play the new campaign, which takes place after the events of the first game and sees players in the role of Kerrigan as she continues her command of the Zerg species.

I know I’m in the minority but I couldn’t care less about multiplayer features. I just want the single player campaign to be worth the sticker price.
