Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm Teaser Site Reveals "Project Blackstone"

By Michael Epstein email: , Updated Feb 06, 2013 11:57 AM EST

A new teaser site on Battle.Net is teasing narrative elements from the Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm campaign.

Going to Project Blackstone prompts a Terran Dominion login screen. Typing in the password, Y7_$0>0k_3<$m, gives readers access to a fictional email from Dr. Helek Branmoor, welcoming a group of scientists to their new role on secret Terran Dominion-funded project. A reply from one of those scientists, Dr. Talen Ayers, replies, implying that he and his fellow recruits have been kidnapped and forced to join the project against their will.

Beside the email exchange is an image of some Zerg larvae, shown above, indicating that the project is connected to studying the alien species. A list accessed by pressing a button at the top of the page suggests that this will be the first in a series of messages that will likely tie the project and characters to the events of the next chapter in the Starcraft II saga.

Have any ideas as to what "Project Blackstone" is all about? Let us know in the comments! Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm will be available for download on March 12.
