If there’s anybody out there who still doesn’t believe that Blizzard are the gods of cinematics, you might want to leave the room or something. We’ve got Hydralisks slicing through Marines, Ultralisks stomping on Siege Tanks and Kerrigan gloating over it all. Or was she? Who cares? Honestly, the only way this trailer could’ve been any better was if Mengsk had shown up, screaming ‘YOU SUNK MY BATTLESHIP!’ Wings of Liberty set the bar really high with one of my all-time favourite trailers, but Kerrigan and co. have just matched it.
I’ll hold my hand up and admit it – Heart of the Swarm wasn’t particularly high on my radar before today, but all that’s changed in 3 spectacular minutes. March 12th can’t come soon enough.
