Heart of the Swarm picks up the story of StarCraft II where the 2010 release, Wings of Liberty, left off, focusing on Kerrigan’s quest to reunite the Swarm and exact revenge on Arcturus Mengsk. This is an expansion pack. StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty required for play, and is sold separately, if you don’t have it already.
In StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm you have to help Kerrigan fight her way through a massive single player campaign leading you to some of the most dangerous worlds in the Koprulu sector. You will face cunning enemies, rough environments and challenges that will afford all of your skills on the battlefield.
On Tarsonis, Sarah Kerrigan was betrayed by her allies and left to die by the people she trusted most but she survived, twisted by the terrifying zerg Overmind. As the Queen of Blades, she controlled the voracious zerg Swarm in a campaign of vengeance and retribution with a deathtoll numbering in the billions. Now, with her powers stripped and her mind finally free from the zerg influence, how much is really left of the woman who once was Sarah Kerrigan? Can her human side be redeemed… or does Kerrigan’s fate forever lie within the Heart of the Swarm?
