StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm zerg multiplayer unit teased

Blizzard has teased the new zerg multiplayer unit for StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm on the official StarCraft Facebook fan page. Blizzard teased the new terran multiplayer unit last week, and plans to tease the protoss multiplayer unit with the same silhouette treatment next week on October 17.

So what will this new zerg unit be? Guesses in the comments section on the StarCraft Facebook page range from reasonable to ridiculous with some posters suggesting the new unit could be a Lurker evolved from a Roach and others pointing out the units likeness to a Pokemon.

Whatever it is, the new multiplayer units for the zerg, terran and protoss will be unveiled at this year’s BlizzCon. Expect more details on what they are and how they handle on GamesRadar, where we’ll be posting coverage live from the convention. In the meantime, you can find out more about StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm’s singleplayer campaign in our hands-on preview.

    Yeah looks like a zerg version of the siege tank. Kinda looks like the ones from starship troopers that shoot the big blue energy balls

    I said it on YouTube when StarHusky talked about this. And it still sounds crazy, but it would be beyond awesome if this thing was a mobile Scourge platform. It won't be, but it's a neat though.

    What's that pokemon? It's a Parashroom. I think it was that anyway.
