Blizzard: Project Blackstone teaser site cracked

Wednesday, 6th February 2013 10:43 GMT By Dave Cook

Blizzard has opened a Project Blackstone teaser site for StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm. It filed a domain registration for the name back in November – we covered it here. The ARG site has now been cracked.

The site can be found here, and it bears a Terran militaristic insignia and a log-in entry field that spews up some garbled code. PCGamesN ran it through a HEX translator and got the password Y7_$0>0k_3< $m.

The result is an email conversation between Talen Ayers, a Blackstone Research employee and Dr. Helek Branamoor. They discuss what the site calls “surprising similarities between the zerg larva’s pluripotent cellular structures and our own embryonic stem cells”

I’m a StarCraft virgin folks so I’m baffled.. But hopefully this excites you fans out there.

    I think its Starcraft related Dave.

    If you look at the URL, it has ‘sc2′ stuck in there at the start.
