Exciting times for StarCraft fans as Blizzard will unveil – in MLG Spring Championship – the next part of their StarCraft 2 saga. According to the company, a large number of StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm demo stations will be featured at this event and the attendees will be able to sit down and see all the StarCraft II Multiplayer changes that have been made to it.
Moreover, there have been various leaks from MLG as the show has already began. According to SC player Kennigit (thanks Neogaf) Mothership will be changed to “Mothership Core”. Tempest will attack air and ground this time around and Oracle has a cloaking ability similar to motherships cloaking ability.
Ultralisks will be able to charge in Heart of the Swarm and Hydra’s speed upgrade will be now at the hive tech.
Overseers can throw the changling and they can stick around longer in an army. It is also easier now to hide an Overseer in army.
Widow mine is introduced and is a factory unit that does not require a tech lab.
Blizzard has also removed bombs from Reaper and added regen for it when it’s out of combat. Viper can regen energy by draining life off you own buildings.
Last but not least, Blizzard released two new videos for StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm. The first video is a ‘Multiplayer Unit Update Showcase’, whereas the second is a Battle Report between Protoss and Zerg.
Enjoy everyone and stay tuned as the game’s beta may hit the Net in the coming weeks!
