StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm – PC, Mac – The Queen of Blades is gone. On the hellish planet Char, Jim Raynor harnessed the power of an ancient Xel’Naga artifact in a desperate bid to stop the zerg Swarm from overrunning the Koprulu sector, and the artifact restored Sarah Kerrigan to her human form. Without their queen to guide and unify them, the Swarm has fractured into several broods scattered throughout the Koprulu sector. One of the greatest threats to the galaxy has been neutralized… or so it seems.  Heart of the Swarm pushes StarCraft even further.  Delve deeper into the hive mind of the zerg than ever before, and improve the competitive play experience on Battle.net. We’re also bringing content made by our community of fans to the fore, and unearthing a playground of new maps.  StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm is $39.99 on Battle.net
