StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm's opening cinematic, watch it here

StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm is inching ever-closer to release, but Blizzard has decided to tease the masses with a look at the standalone expansion's opening cinematic. It's full of soldiers, combat, savage beasts and even one instance of a Wilhelm Scream. See if you can spot it through the cut.

Speaking with Polygon, StarCraft 2 game director Dustin Browder explained the purpose of the above clip, and stated it's supposed to symbolise the kind of power series mainstay Kerrigan aspires to, but that she currently doesn't have. Poor lass.

Are you excited for Heart of the Swarm? Let us know below.

Thanks to teamliquidnet for the clip.
