Char – Leviathan Scenes

Izsha: My queen, your transformation has altered your abilities. If you wish, you can review the changes within your chamber.

supreme-epilogue-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-1

 


Izsha – New Conversation

Izsha: You have become strong and taken another world. I think you will conquer the universe.

supreme-epilogue-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-2

Kerrigan: I don’t know about that. But the zerg will never again be pawns of other races … not even the xel’naga.

supreme-epilogue-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-3

Kerrigan: We have changed. And now, other worlds await.

supreme-epilogue-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-4

 


Dehaka – New Conversation

Kerrigan: Did you know the Ancient One would turn on me?

supreme-epilogue-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-5

Dehaka: Your essence. It called him.

supreme-epilogue-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-6

Kerrigan: And you didn’t try to warn me.

Dehaka: He was zerg. You are zerg. One dies and one grows strong. You know.

Kerrigan: I think I am starting to understand you. Dehaka.

 


Kerrigan Chambers

Izsha: The powerful essence of the primal pack leaders has awakened a new column and many abilities.

supreme-epilogue-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-7

As new tiers of abilities continue to awaken, you will gain abilities in this third column as well.

supreme-epilogue-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-8

 


Abathur – New Conversation

Kerrigan: Tell me about your work.

supreme-epilogue-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-9

Abathur: Look at flesh, see only potential. Strands, sequences, twisting, separating, joining. See how it could be better.

supreme-epilogue-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-10

Abathur: Eat flesh, splinter bone. Inside me, can touch it. Weave it. Spin it. Make it great.

supreme-epilogue-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-11

Kerrigan: But not perfect?

supreme-epilogue-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-12

Abathur: Never perfect. Perfection goal that changes. Never stops moving. Can chase, cannot catch.

Kerrigan: You certainly have your uses.

Supreme – Mission Briefing

Zurvan: It is time. Confront the remaining pack leaders. Take what is theirs. Embrace the destiny of all zerg.

supreme2-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-1

 

supreme2-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-2


Gameplay

Zurvan: You must know your enemies. Yagdra, a worm whose acid burns like fire.

supreme2-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-3

Zurvan: Kraith, immense and consumed by hatred.

supreme2-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-4

Zurvan: Slivan, the Eternal Mother, hollow and destructive.

supreme2-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-5

Zurvan: Kill them and you will command the whole of the zerg. Each has sent most of its pack against your Swarm, leaving themselves vulnerable.

Kerrigan: Izsha, defend the leviathan. I will deal with the pack leaders myself.

Abathur: My queen. New form, powerful. Can leap through air, strike foes. Heavy damage.

supreme2-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-6

Abathur: New offensive ability: “Psionic Shift.” Dash quickly. Destroy creatures within path.

supreme2-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-7

Abathur: This relic: xel’naga origin. Houses genetic information. Important, must collect.

supreme2-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-8

Dehaka: Primal roaches help. They fight Yagdra’s brood.

Abathur: New form can twist essence. “Mend” wounds. Heal nearby zerg and self.

supreme2-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-9

Dehaka: More roaches.

 


Yagdra

Yagdra: Leader of the broken pack? No!

supreme2-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-10

Kerrigan: Is that fear, Yagdra? You do know you never had a chance, right?

Yagdra: Your change means nothing! I will melt the flesh from your bones! Die weakling!

Kerrigan: It’s laying eggs! Destroy them!

Yagdra: Stay still!

(Yagdra dies)

supreme2-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-11

Dehaka: More of my pack. Primal hydralisks.

Kerrigan: Quickly, destroy the eggs before they hatch! Focus on the largest ones first.

supreme2-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-12

Dehaka: My pack is ready to fight!

 


Kraith

Kraith: I feel your strength … You will be worth killing, worth the blood! A thousand cuts shred the flesh!

supreme2-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-13

Kraith: Rip you apart … limb from limb!

(Kraith dies)

supreme2-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-14

Dehaka: My pack arrives! They will break your enemies!

supreme2-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-15

Dehaka: These one explode when they sense you.

supreme2-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-16

Dehaka: Ravasaur. Fights with acid. Bring it down quickly.

 


Slivan

Slivan: Welcome … to your demise.

supreme2-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-17

 


Zurvan

Zurvan: It is time.

Kerrigan: Zurvan.

Zurvan: The pack leaders are slain, their packs join your Swarm, and here you stand. Complete. You are zerg. Your essence overflows with power. I … I thirst. You will feed my evolution; the first in millennia.

supreme2-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-18

Kerrigan: I wondered when you would make your move.

Zurvan: No allegiance but to self. Kill or be killed. You know this.

Kerrigan: Of course.

Zurvan: One will be consumed and become something greater than either! This is the heritage of the zerg!

Fight Kerrigan. Only the strongest survive! This is the destiny of all primal zerg. There is no escaping fate.

supreme2-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-19

(Zurvan dies)

Kerrigan: Zerus is mine. Izsha, prepare the leviathan. It’s time the Swarm returned to the Koprulu sector.

supreme-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-1


Supreme – Leviathan Scenes

Kerrigan: Izsha, what is a primal zerg doing on my leviathan?

supreme-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-2

Dehaka: I am Dehaka. One-who-collects. I kill, I take essence. Now I come to you because I feel your change. All Zerus feels it. All Zerus fears it, and you.

supreme-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-3

supreme-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-4

Kerrigan: But you don’t fear me, do you, Dehaka?

supreme-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-5

Dehaka: You shine. You will bring more essence, and I will follow. When you do not, I will not.

Kerrigan: Well, I’ve forged alliances on shakier ground than that. Very well, you can stay. Betray me and I’ll collect your essence.

Dehaka: Yes.

 


Dehaka – New Conversation

Kerrigan: Do you think the remaining pack leaders will join me now?

supreme-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-7

Dehaka: They are a rock, a tree, a hill. They will stand against the wind. They seek power.

supreme-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-8

Kerrigan: And you?

supreme-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-9

Dehaka: I am a river, I flow. I seek essence.

Kerrigan: Well the pack leaders have no chance against the Swarm now.

supreme-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-10

Dehaka: They gather essence for thousands of years. They are blinded. But they are not foolish.

 


Zurvan – New Conversation

Zurvan: You have been reborn. A primal pack leader of boundless power.

supreme-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-11

Kerrigan: I feel as if I can rip worlds apart.

supreme-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-12

Zurvan: And are you the equal of Amon, who once controlled you?

Kerrigan: He never controlled me. I felt … an influence. A trace of something dark, but long gone. Amon must have died before I was infested.

Zurvan: I hope it is so. For he truly could rip worlds apart.

 


Izsha – New Conversation

Izsha: You radiate so much power. More than the old Queen of Blades ever did.

supreme-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-15

Kerrigan: Everything is different. I could always hear the Swarm, control it.

supreme-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-13

But now … I feel the Swarm. Now I am the Swarm.

supreme-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-14

 


Abathur – New Converation

Abathur: Genetic strands different. Restructured from base level up.

supreme-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-16

Stronger than Queen of Blades. Sequences complex but clean. Completely different at core.

supreme-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-17

Kerrigan: Yes, I am different. I am my own master. When the xel’naga artifact made me human again, it cleansed me of Amon’s influence. And that allowed me to become … something greater.

supreme-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-18

Abathur: Must take sample. Study new sequences.

Kerrigan: Don’t even try, Abathur. What I am now, is beyond your comprehension.

supreme-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-19

Abathur: Difficult to admit. New structure beyond understanding. Will return to work.

The Crucible – StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm

the-crucible-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-19


Mission Briefing

Zurvan: Travel to the birthplace of the zerg. There you will be tested. You may be torn apart. If your rage makes you strong enough, the power of Zerus will be yours.

the-crucible-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-1

 


Cutscene

Zurvan: You have come to this place seeking power.

Kerrigan: Power to kill Mengsk. Tell me what I must do.

Zurvan: The power is more ancient even than I. It comes at great cost. What will you sacrifice to have your revenge?

Kerrigan: Everything.

Zurvan: You must feel the power. It calls to you. Go to it.

the-crucible-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-2

Izsha: The primal zerg have been alerted to your arrival. They are coming for you.

Kerrigan: Abathur, send me the creature you’ve been working on – the swarm host.

the-crucible-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-3

Abathur: Adapted using primal essence. Spawns locusts to kill enemies. Primal zerg inbound. root swarm hosts to begin spawning.

Kerrigan: Here they come.

Izsha: Primal forces eliminated. Your path is clear.

Zurvan: You are close. The moment draws near. Is your hate still strong enough to make the necessary sacrifice?

the-crucible-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-4

Kerrigan: It’s … a pool.

Zurvan: The first spawning pool. It existed before names. From this primordial place, the zerg arose. Within, one essence split into many. One devoured another and became stronger. the first zerg.

the-crucible-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-5

the-crucible-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-6

You will have your power, and you will lose yourself. Evolve. Transform. Transcend.

Abathur: Recommendation: avoid pool. Catalytic fluid will overwhelm queen’s body. Not strong enough.

Kerrigan: The queen’s hate is strong enough. And if I survive, it will remake me. I will become more powerful than the old Queen of Blades. Izsha, defend the hive cluster and the chrysalis until I am done… or dead.

the-crucible-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-7

Izsha: As you command.

[24:45] – Izsha: We need more swarm hosts… Morph more from the larvae at our hatchery.

[24:01] – Izsha: The remnants of Brakk’s forces gather nearby. They are preparing to attack the hive cluster! Root our swarm hosts and crawlers by that entrance!

[23:02] – Izsha: My queen, if you morph more drones you can gather minerals faster.

[21:25] – Izsha: I sense another pack of primal zerg gathering across the basin.

[21:20] – Yagdra: Hear me, broken zerg. You have killed Brakk, but his pack survives. I claim their territory, and their essence!

[20:42] – Izsha: The primal zerg factions have engaged each other. We must remain focused on protecting the chrysalis.

[20:18] – Yagdra: I have not forgotten you, broken pack. Your leader sleeps. She will not awake. My pack will feast upon your essence!

[20:03] – Izsha: Yagdra’s pack is preparing to attack our hive cluster! Ready our defenses!

[17:56] – Abathur: Entity Izsha. Have made important discovery. Primal essence gathering within pool. Can use. Spawn many locusts to defend hive cluster from primal attacks.

[17:41] – Another wave of primal zerg is inbound. Spawn the locusts now.

[14:23] – Izsha: I sense a massive primal zerg emerging. It seems to be wild.

[14:16] – Abathur: Tyrannozor. Savage. Extreme physical prowess. Essence useful, must acquire.

[14:07] – Izsha: That will not be easy. We will have to cross the battle between Brakk and Yagdra’s packs.

[13:34] – Izsha: Both packs are moving against us! Prepare for a pincer attack.

[12:29] – Izsha: Our queen’s metamorphosis is halfway complete! Maintain our defense!

[7:29] – Izsha: The primal zerg are destroying the rocks near the chrysalis!

[6:40] – Izsha: The primals have broken through the barricade! Defend the chrysalis!

[6:13] – Izsha: The chrysalis has opened! Our queen is beginning to awaken!

[4:49] – Izsha: My queen, completing bonus objectives will increase your power level.

[3:18] – Yagdra: My pack is strong! We claim essence, we devour! The broken zerg remain! Collect their essence! kill!

[3:06] – Izsha: Yagdra’s forces are gathering! They are converging upon the hive cluster!

[2:06] – Izsha: The chrysalis is under attack!

[2:03] – Abathur: Able to spawn locusts now.

[0:55] – Izsha: Defend the chrysalis! The Swarm will prevail!

Zurvan Conversation

Zurvan: You have questions.

the-crucible-leviathan-scenes-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-3

Kerrigan: The primal zerg say the Swarm is corrupted. What did the fallen xel’naga, Amon, do to us?

the-crucible-leviathan-scenes-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-4

Zurvan: He desired our strength, the ability to steal essence. But we were independent… We would not follow. And so he bound the zerg to a single overriding will. They lost their identity, and became his slaves.

Kerrigan: The hive mind. That’s Amon’s corruption?

Zurvan: It is, and a terrible fate for a strong primal zerg.

 


Izsha Conversation

Izsha: My queen, why did we wake the Ancient One? Its power outstrips even yours.

the-crucible-leviathan-scenes-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-5

Kerrigan: The Ancient One is the key to unlocking the power of Zerus, and I need that knowledge.

Izsha: Will it not destroy us?

Kerrigan: It’s called a gamble. It’s something terrans do, when their instincts tell them the time is right.

Izsha: I see. Just as when the terran James Raynor came to Char to return you to your original form?

Kerrigan: Yes, just like that. The thing about gambles, Izsha, is that sometimes you lose.

the-crucible-leviathan-scenes-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-6

 


Abathur Conversation

Abathur: Primal zerg. Unacceptable. Must be wiped clean. No trace left. Destroy primal zerg.

the-crucible-leviathan-scenes-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-7

Kerrigan: What are you talking about?

the-crucible-leviathan-scenes-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-8

Abathur: Saw ranged primal zerg creatures on battlefield? Based on hydralisk! Primal zerg stole design from Swarm! Swarm on planet for hours, days, already being replicated!

Kerrigan: Abathur, are you upset?

Abathur: Unacceptable! Swarm’s power, ability to assimilate strengths. Primal zerg must not take from us!

Kerrigan: Don’t worry about it. They’ll be on our side before I am done here.

Zeratul: If you truly seek the power of Zerus, you will need the Ancient One.

Kerrigan: So this is the Ancient One.

waking-the-ancient-starcraft-ii-heart-of-the-swarm-single-player-7

Izsha: To awaken this creature, we must feed it.

Kerrigan: There’s a lot of biomass here. We’ll kill these quillgor and have drones harvest meat from their corpses. Once the drone is done harvesting, it will drag the biomass to the ancient.

Izsha: Quillgor located. We must move quickly if we are to secure their biomass.

Izsha: A drone can harvest biomass from this quillgor. The process is slow, and our drone will be vulnerable. We must protect it while it harvests.

Kerrigan: We need to harvest this biomass quickly!

Brakk: She must not wake the ancient! Destroy the meat! Leave her nothing!

Kerrigan: We have to stop them. Our forces can intercept their raiding parties.

Izsha: Primal zerg forces incoming. Our drone must be protected. Primal forces are attacking quillgor biomass.

Brakk: Your arrogance is unacceptable! Zerus will consume you!

Kerrigan: I’m sensing something primal nearby, but it’s small.

Abathur: Primal essence pool. Strong sequences. Approach, absorb essence. Will augment strength.

Kerrigan: I feel stronger. This must be the power Zeratul spoke of.

Izsha: Brakk’s forces have destroyed quillgor biomass.

Brakk: Your Swarm is mindless. The primal zerg descend upon you!

Izsha: It is dangerous to harvest from multiple corpses. The primal zerg are sure to attack our drones.

Brakk: You grow greedy! It shall be your downfall!

Abathur: Primal organism detected. Function similar to hive, spawns primals. Annihilation recommended.

Izsha: A drone is under attack by Brakk’s forces.

Izsha: Primal forces are attacking quillgor biomass.

Izsha: We should morph units that can attack flying units. Morphing hydralisks or queens will allow us to destroy the enemy’s fliers.

Completion

Brakk: This ends now, corrupt zerg! I will kill you myself!

Kerrigan: Defend the hive cluster!

Brakk: Your empty minions are no match for the might of the primal zerg.

Ancient One: I return.

Kerrigan: Ancient One! I am here for the power of Zerus. I will sacrifice anything to achieve my goal. You will help me.

Ancient One: Your Swarm bears the mark of Amon, the fallen xel’naga, who came to Zerus long ago. He forged the zerg into a weapon, and took them away. Yet some of us were hidden, overlooked. We multiplied. We remain pure. If you seek our power, you must become primal zerg. You must become pure.
