StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Screenshots & Videos

Hell, it’s about time.

Blizzard has released a bounty of assets for the upcoming expansion to its RTS blockbuster, StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm. Here are two videos and fifteen screenshots to sate your thirst as you wait for the (projected) 2012 release.

Teaser trailer:

Looks like we haven’t seen the last of Nova. At least StarCraft: Ghost has survived in one form or another.

Gameplay preview:

We just got a sneak peak at upgrades for two of the swarm’s most adorable little critters:

Splitterlings: Banelings that explode, forming two smaller banelings, that explode, forming two smaller banelings. Terrible, terrible damage.

Swarmlings: Zerglings that come in packs of three instead of two. Buy two, get one free!

These upgrades will likely only be available in the singleplayer campaign — after the most recent StarCraft 2 patches, the multiplayer game is more balanced than it has ever been, and the introduction of monumental changes like these would send a ripple throughout the competitive community.

Screenshots:

Am I the only one not digging Kerrigan’s new look? I loved the original uninfested Sarah, and her Queen of Blades form was badass, but this half-way look just feels weird to me. (I’ll put on my riot gear for the ensuing hate that will hurled my way.)

Still, as an avid SC2 fan, I can’t wait to see where the story goes.
