Blizzard Unleashes StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm Cinematic

No other motion genre outside of feature films pushes the scale, complexity and sheer visceral intensity of 3D like the best gaming trailers and cinematics.

This clip for the StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm expansion created in-house at Blizzard borrows narrative elements from their 2008 Diablo III cinematic (beautiful young woman narrating then waking from a dream, at the end) but reverses the usual game promo relationship of hero and monster as the humans never stand a chance. Welcome to The Hive Mind.

HD viewing highly recommended.

Summary of the game from the site:

“You are Sarah Kerrigan, former Queen of Blades. Once the most feared entity in the galaxy, you now wait in a cell in the depths of a high-security research laboratory. Before the murderous forces of the Terran Dominion close in, you must plot your escape to the dark reaches of space… and reclaim your living empire at the Heart of the Swarm.”
