    The Queen of Blades no longer exists and Sarah Kerrigan has been restored to her human form. The Swarm is without a leader, scattered into several broods throughout the Koprulu sector. Yet all is not well. The artifact Jim Raynor used may have set Kerrigan free, but she still seems bent on assembling the Zerg broods, even without the terrible powers of the Queen of Blades. Is vengeance still on her mind? Or does Sarah Kerrigan have a new purpose? Will she be able to restore her strength and regain control of the Swarm? Or will Emperor Arcturus Mengsk finally be able to take out his weakened enemy?

    Help Kerrigan fight her way through an expansive single-player campaign in StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm. Travel to some of the most dangerous worlds of the Koprulu sector, including Char, where a rogue queen is gathering eggs laid by the former Queen of Blades to hatch as her own, and Kaldir, a frozen planet that will require Kerrigan to adapt to the withering cold as she tries to find out what happened to her lost brood. Unlock new roles and acquire new abilities as you progress through the campaign. Mutate your zerg species in between missions to create a better, faster and stronger Swarm and explore new multiplayer maps with new units as you try to lead the Swarm to ultimate victory.

    Product Features

    Evolve the zerg Swarm with unique units and abilities in approximately 20 single-player campaign missions as you escape the murderous forces of the Terran Dominion

    Face down cunning enemies, harsh environments and startling challenges as you assume the role of a determined Sarah Kerrigan, the former Queen of Blades whose powers have been stripped away

    Return to the planet Char to gather eggs to quickly grow your numbers and subdue a rogue queen who plans to take over the Swarm

    Unlock latent psionic powers and swarm from planet to planet aboard your moon-sized Leviathan on your path of furious vengeance

    Deploy devastating new units across an ever-shifting battlefield, including the Battle Hellion to incinerate advancing foes, the Tempest to seize air superiority and the Swarm Host to engulf entrenched enemies

    Adapt to the extreme cold and flash freezes of Kaldir and find out the mysterious fate of the brood sent to learn how to adapt to the harsh conditions

    Choose from multiple roles, called Battle Focuses, to equip Kerrigan with a unique set of abilities, then unlock new abilities as the game progresses — but each Focus and decision you make will greatly effect the mission

    Unlock mutations for your zerg species to evolve into one of two possible new strains

    Explore new maps and use new units in multiplayer modes that include co-op games with friends, near limitless custom mods in the StarCraft II Arcade, and ranked and unranked brackets
