New StarCraft II Unit - Baneling

Postby Lavarinth » Sat May 24, 2008 9:42 am

Blizzard has added a new zerg unit, the baneling.

"The baneling is a creature so bloated with fluid-filled sacs that it can barely walk; instead, it moves itself by tucking into a tight ball and rolling. However, this ungainly appearance belies the fact that the baneling is an extremely dangerous organism, one of several new zerg specialists recently seen on the battlefield. When a baneling gets close enough to an enemy, the creature triggers a reaction within its volatile chemical payload that causes it to explode with devastating force and shower the immediate surroundings with searing acid."Image

Read more about the baneling here. Blizzard has also added four new pieces of artwork and seven new screenshots.

It's surely a lie.  Blizzard doesn't update their StarCraft II page!

I wouldn't exactly call this an update when the Baneling was one of the first units announced.
