StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm's eSports tools detailed

Replays, recover matches, and more

Blizzard's Community Manager Kevin Johnson detailed some of the new eSports and multiplayer features fans can expect in StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm. New tools include the ability to watch match replays in groups, and a new custom interface for eSports tournaments or video casters that lets them dictate how information is presented.

Players can also watch a reply, and then jump into the replay they're watching to play through the match again. The biggest new feature, though, is the ability to pick up a match from any point in the event of some kind of power failure or connection issue. No more having to start a match all over again, something that's crucial when it comes to tournaments with prize money on the line.

StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm will be out on the PC March 12, 2013.
