Stripping Mothership To The Core: Changing Starcraft 2's Most Powerful Unit

by Ben Hanson on Jun 22, 2012 at 02:15 PM

Not only will Blizzard be adding new units for Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm, but they will also be tweaking a couple of past units. The Protoss Mothership has always been one of the most interesting units in the game, it's a massive airship that inherited the Arbiter from the first Starcraft's passive cloaking ability in addition to being capable of creating an enemy unit-absorbing black hole.

We spoke with Starcraft 2's production director about the unveiling and changes to the Mothership throughout the years and how and why the unit was changed with the addition of the Mothership Core in Heart of the Swarm.
