New StarCraft II Trailer & Details

Blizzard has officially spilled the beans and given us a wealth of new information. Obviously, they haven’t given all the details on the game, but here’s what we know so far:

  • You command your army on a Leviathan.
  • Two new characters have been confirmed: Izsha, your female-looking advisor that looks like a Medusa/Zerg Queen, and Abathur, your “engineer” that does all the upgrading, he looks like a bug Zerg.
  • No sign of Lurkers… yet.
  • Evolution Chamber at the headquarters allow you to change a Zerg unit permanently, such as a Roach to a Prowler.
  • Kerrigan gets her own abilities to upgrade.
  • If Kerrigan dies, she can revive herself, allowing you to rush in at will.

No official announcement on the pricing yet, though Blizzard has stated that it will be “priced accordingly as an expansion for StarCraft II”.
