Strategic warfare in outer space will probably never be the same again thanks to Starcraft 2, the latest entry in the Starcraft series, which brought to our computers some solid real time strategy game experience, a genre which has been out of the spotlight in recent years after the many releases in the early 2000s. Blizzard hasn’t forgotten its fan and a new expansion for Starcraft 2 is coming next year, with a new single player campaign featuring a new story, starting from the ending of the previous expansion, new units, tweakings on gameplay and most of all, new game modes.
Heaer Of The Swarm will introduce a new multiplayer mode called AI training: as you can expect from such a name, players will battle against the CPU in a simulation of a real multiplayer match in a training area. The difficulty will gradually increase and players will receive advices on how to play effectively. Once the mode has been completed, players will be offered to play a real unranked multiplayer match.
Mike Morhaime said that the team strongly wanted to include such a mode to allow newer players to get into the game easier: one thing they know at Blizzard is that many players never play multiplayer modes due to them not feeling good enough and almost intimidated. This is also the reason why unranked matchmaking was introduced: Blizzard want to make players experience all the game has to offer in the easiest way possible.
Starcraft 2: Heart Of The Swarm will be released in the first half of 2013.
