StarCraft II: 15 Minutes With The Zerg
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments
Kotaku has posted a hands-on preview of Zerg combat in Blizzard Entertainment's upcoming StarCraft II. The article is based on 15 minutes of play time with the game at the recent Leipzig Game Convention. StarCraft II will return players to the storyline several years after the conclusion of Brood War, and feature all new multiplayer mayhem for fans to enjoy.
What was kind of surprising was how far one had to progress to whip up a couple Hydralisks and make them useful. The unit had always felt a little overpowered in the original StarCraft, but Blizzard looks to be limiting their effectiveness by way of high cost, long tech progression and a more widely spread tech tree.Check out the full preview at the link below.
In fact, the entire tech tree feels that way, as upgrades for units are peppered throughout a wider range of structures and building upgrades. It's all going to take some time getting used to, as the Zerg felt much more straightforward in their previous incarnation.
