Terrans will take it on the chin from the former Queen of Blades on March 12.
2010's 'StarCraft II' continues with its first expansion, 'StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm,' mere years away from the expected release of the third installment.
Blizzard is hyping the release by teasing the story. From Blizzard through Shack News, "Sarah Kerrigan is on the loose. Even without the terrible powers of the Queen of Blades or the might of the Swarm at her command, the former Ghost remains a foe not to be taken lightly. But if the artifact really did set her free, then why is Kerrigan seeking out Zerg broods scattered throughout the Koprulu sector? Is she still pursuing her quest for vengeance, or has her transformation given Kerrigan a new purpose?"
As the beta for the game opens up, retailers including Amazon are issuing beta keys to pre-order customers.
