Not only is Blizzard Entertainment a game developer that delivers arguably some of the most popular PC games in the world, they are also known for their amazing gameplay cinematics. The cinematics they create are cleverly done to establish a clear tone for the game and briefly tease the experience in store for gamers.
Their latest cinematic does just that. Blizzard has released the opening cinematic for StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm. From the visuals to the story telling, this is a Blizzard opening that hits all spectrums of awesome, even if it is comprised entirely of pre-rendered CG footage.
Narrated by the Queen of Blades herself, Kerrigan, the opening cinematic shows off plenty of destruction from the Zerg race’s most devastating creatures. The receiving end of the Zerg wratch, is the Terrans.
Keep in mind, Kerrigan is newly humanized who only has remnants of her Zerg form in this trailer – namely her awesome iconic hairdo. As we know by now, Heart of the Swarm will focus specifically on Kerrigan and her quest to reclaim the Zerg throne. However, it’s a long road to the top, and as we can see from the cinematic, Kerrigan is a long way from “home.”
