Blizzard teases StarCraft 2 update

Sc2 Heart Of The Swarm

World of Warcraft maker unveils a teaser website for a previously unheard of 'Project Blackstone'.

StarCraft and World of Warcraft maker Blizzard has offered a glimpse at its next offering via a website simply entitled 'Project Blackstone'.

The ominous looking website appears to be linked to the company's StarCraft 2 title and features a government style logo with a password entry box.

The big brains over at PCGamesN found that you could get access to the site by using the following code: Y7_$0>0k_3<$m

Once inside, the site shows up an e-mail exchange between characters within the game concerning StarCraft 2 baddies The Zerg, who will feature as the primary faction in the upcoming expansion Heart of the Swarm.

Via the site, fans can get a look at upcoming storylines, new units and concept art from the imaginative designers at Blizzard.

The next instalment in the franchise, which follows up from 2010's phenomenally successful Wings of Liberty, will no doubt cause a retail feeding frenzy when it hits shelves on March 12th.

“With Heart of the Swarm, our goal has been to expand on the multiplayer action and cinematic storytelling of Wings of Liberty,” Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard previously commented.

“Combined with features like unranked matchmaking and our new leveling system, this expansion elevates the StarCraft II experience for players of all skill levels.”
