game box-imageStarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm is an upcoming expansion pack to the military science-fiction real-time strategy game StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty and part two of the planned StarCraft II trilogy. Part three is titled StartCraft II: Legacy of the Void.



Four years after the Brood War, Zerg leader Sarah Kerrigan - an infested Terran and Raynor's old love interest now going under the name The Queen of Blades - gathered the Swarm at the planet Char and remained silent.

Sara Kerrigan

Meanwhile, the Protoss stay passive while Jim Raynor forms a group aptly named Raynor's Raiders to overthrow Emperor Mengsk and his Terran Dominion, whereupon Raynor is visited by his old friend Tychus Findlay, who, after escaping from many years in prison, agrees to join "his revolution". Tychus convinces Raynor to take additional missions of collecting mysterious Xel'Naga objects for a scientific organization called the Moebius Foundation, that promises good money in return. But upon collecting the first object, Raynor discovers that the Queen of Blades also desires the objects, and the Zerg suddenly attack multiple fringe worlds.


Soon after, Raynor is visited by the Protoss leader Zeratul, who gives him a crystal infused with his, Zeratul's, own memories. While viewing these memories, Raynor sees Zeratul searching for a prophecy about a half-Protoss, half-Zerg hybrid. Trouble arises as Kerrigan and the Zerg also look for the prophecy, but, Zeratul barely manages to escape alive. Zeratul is unable to translate the prophecy and takes it to another world to be interpreted. However, he finds that the Protoss he was looking for had been enslaved by a Hybrid. He learns that the prophecy spoke of a "great hungerer", the original Zerg Overmind, and he returns to Aiur to try to read the Overmind's memories. While preparing to enter the Overmind's corpse Zeratul encounters Tassadar, who tells him that the Overmind planned its death to protect the Zerg, and that Kerrigan was the key to saving the universe. Tassadar then shares with Zeratul the Overmind's prophetic vision of the future, which shows a large-scale battle between the Protoss and the Zerg. The Terran have already been exterminated, and the Zerg have been enslaved by the hybrids, forced into the battle. The Protoss put up a valiant defense, but eventually fall to the never-ceasing numbers of the Swarm. The Zerg are then annihilated, leaving only the Hybrids. Zeratul tells Raynor that he must protect Kerrigan, lest the whole universe be destroyed by the "Fallen One", who was actually the controlling force behind the Overmind's actions to dominate the Protoss.

After Raynor's Raiders collect the final Xel'Naga artifact, they encounter Dominion battleships at the pre-agreed Moebius Foundation rendezvous point. The Moebius Foundation, it's revealed, is under the control of Valerian Mengsk, Emperor Arcturus Mengsk's son. Valerian asks Raynor to help him invade Char and use the artifact to restore Kerrigan to human form, and therefore weaken the Zerg. To the initial dismay of the crew, Raynor agrees. As the invasion of Char begins, the Dominion and Raider fleet is caught off-guard by a Zerg preemptive strike. Raynor secures a foothold on Char and sets to rendezvous with surviving Dominion forces. The combined forces push towards the main Hive Cluster of the planet. The artifact eventually reaches full power and activates, destroying all Zerg within the blast radius. Raynor's team finds Kerrigan restored to human form; however Tychus reveals that he made a deal with Mengsk, trading Kerrigan's life for his own freedom. Raynor defends Kerrigan from Tychus' attempt to kill her and shoots Tychus in the process. The closing scene shows Raynor carrying Sarah across the battlefield in his arms.


The plot of Heart of the Swarm begins where Wings of Liberty left off. It will focus on the Zerg species and feature Sarah Kerrigan as the protagonist, but it is not known if she will be a hero or villain in the story. The campaign begins with Kerrigan's quest to regain control of the swarm, in her regained human form. The Zerg split into several factions without her leadership, and she must regain control of the various rival broods, some of which are headed by queens, while General Warfield of the Dominion is attempting to eradicate the Zerg on Char. Additionally, a teaser trailer for the game showed Nova leading a team of Terran Ghosts and Spectres to infiltrate a Terran facility and orders them to "find Kerrigan". Amidst the chaos of the attack, Raynor chases a pair of Ghosts to a room. The Ghosts lock the door behind them, and soon after an explosion occurs. Raynor then picks up the ruin of the door and enters the room where he finds Kerrigan wearing a Terran Ghost suit, her back to him.

The expansion will include additional units and multiplayer changes from Wings of Liberty, as well as a continuing campaign focusing on the Zerg species. It will span approximately 20 missions and will be priced as an expansion set. Currently no release date has been announced but based on hints from Blizzard, it is likely to be released around April 2012, and very unlikely to ship before the end of 2011.
