StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm eSports and Multiplayer preview showcases new replay options, more

A new StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm preview reveals the many changes and additions made for eSports and multiplayer.

Community manager Kevin Johnson narrates the video, which you can watch above. StarCraft 2 players will now be able to watch replays with a group, thanks to a new "watch with others" button located at the bottom of the replay interface. Players will even be able to jump into match replays and player as a character from that match with a new "Take Command" feature.

Other additions include the ability to recover a game lost due to technical errors, customizable user interface in observer mode, and new physics and stats.

StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm will be released March 12.
