- Baneling Pet in World of Warcraft®
- Blade Wings & Banner Sigil in Diablo® III
In the HotS multiplayer will be changed with new units and plenty of new strategies to test and dominate with. If you are a hardcore SC2 player then head on over to the forums to check out the discussions taking part.
There will also be the full Zerg campaign with plenty of Kerrigan for you lore and single player fans. Plus there is this nice little bit of info from the HotS pages.
Kerrigan will be a playable unit in most missions of StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm. When the former Queen of Blades takes the field, she has multiple roles to choose from. Each role is called a Battle Focus and comes with a unique set of abilities. As the campaign progresses, new roles will unlock, and Kerrigan will acquire new abilities for existing roles. The Battle Focus you choose for Kerrigan in any given mission and the way you use her powers will have a major impact on how each mission plays out.
