  • Now I’m no Starcraft 2 pro, hell even though I spent months (literally months in front of a screen) on Starcraft 1 I haven’t touched it, but surely the multiplayer for Heart of the Swarm would be identical to Wings of Liberty? If I’m wrong, then that’s pretty cool and, I retract the negative statement

    • Similar, yes, but not identical. They’re introducing new units, modifying existing ones, removing some, so on and so forth, to try and get a more balanced, system.

      Will there be anything in it that couldn’t be delivered as a very large patch? Unlikely, but that’s par for the course for expansions.

  • I’m looking forward to the new campaign.
    DOesn’t anyone else think that the way it was delivered in Wings of Liberty was brilliant for an RTS?
    Same as MK9 the campaign was done very well for a fighting game too with how it flowed etc.
