Blizzard Unleashes The Zerg
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Blizzard Entertainment's StarCraft II website has been updated with the introduction of the zerg, the third playable race in the upcoming RTS sequel. Blizzard kicks off the unveiling with a look at two old favorites: the hydralisk and the mutalisk. The website also includes a recent history of the zerg swarm, screenshots, concept art, and unit videos.

When the zerg first arrived in the Koprulu sector, they were unified by their absolute obedience to the zerg collective sentience known as the Overmind. The Overmind ultimately directed the actions of every zerg creature in the Swarm, functioning through a hierarchy of lesser sentiences. The first and most important tier of these consisted of the cerebrates, each entrusted with direct control of a sizable section of the Swarm. The cerebrates' commands were disseminated in turn by the overlords, which directly ordered and controlled the mass of zerg creatures both in their nests and on the battlefield.

Although the Overmind was primarily driven by its desire to consume and assimilate the advanced protoss race, it found useful but undeveloped material in humanity. Taking a powerful terran psionic, Sarah Kerrigan, the Overmind evolved a new and unique creature: the Queen of Blades. When the protoss destroyed the Overmind during the invasion of Aiur, the Queen of Blades manipulated the dark templar into eliminating the surviving cerebrates. As a result, she came to dominate the Swarm.
