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

0

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.
