I was cruising on the Starcraft wiki and it looks like they have been able to pull some names for some of the new evolutions of Zerg in the campaign, which I will post here :
Zergling (Raptor - Swarmling)
Baneling (Gorgeling - Splitterling)
Roach (Leech - Prowler - Scavenger)
Queen (Larval Queen - Swarm Queen)
Ultralisk (Gigalisk - Magnathar)
Swarm Host (Carrion - Creeper)
Mutalisk (Fiend - Fury)
There are also some names of some individual new Zerg units in the game, probably unique in the sense that the Odin was for the campaign :
What do you think these new units do? We know that the Raptor will gain the ability to charge units as well as jump cliffs, and the Gorgeling will give back resources for what it dissolves, so what are your thoughts? I'm super excited for this new campaign and can't wait to see what Blizzard has in store for us.
It has a list over on the Starcraft Wiki (just Google it). If you look at the Heart of the Swarm, it shows units, plus their evolutions. Mind you it doesn't say what they do (unless it has already been revealed like the Raptor). I think they were able to find it from the HotS Beta files (like the 'Zerus' map tileset.
Hmm, I'm skeptical, but I'll take a shot:
Probably a Roach that is able to leech attack/armor/health of some sort from fallen allies/enemies?
Definitely a Queen with better Larva Inject and macro abilities.
Maybe it's a Queen with in-battle support powers? Like the Brood War Queen.
Probably just a super-sized Ultralisk.
I have no clue. Maybe it's like the opposite of a Gigalisk. Fast and nimble.
Based off the name, I'm going to assume it has some sort of resurrection ability. Whether it's used to reanimate enemies or allies or just Locusts...I don't know.
Uhhh...better Locusts? Maybe the Swarm Host spread creep?
Flying Locusts! Ha!
Obviously it's a Lurker with stronger spines, maybe with a passive spell related to the spines.
Maybe the Mutalisk gets a passive aura that debuffs enemies? Or something like that? Maybe the Mutalisk becomes invisible?
Greek god of anger. Stronger overall Mutalisks?
No idea, though it obviously has something to do with the spells lol...
Maybe a super Ultra-like unit?
Burrowed unit probably. Like a deadly moving monstrosity with hungry Nydus Worms as arms.
No idea. Anti-air?
Maybe a siege-breaker unit that acts like a super Zergling?
Some sort of sabotage unit.
A real life Trichinella is a parasite. So...yeah, this unit is some sort of parasite.
I saw these too. The names give us very little clue as to what they actually are, unfortunately. This is the only picture I have to go off of:
Here are my bets as to what they do.
- One of the Ultralisks would certainly have burrow charge. I don't know which one.
- The Creeper (spiky SH) would get an attack, and the Carrion (bubbly SH) would spawn Harpies.
- The Behemoth IS the Zerg massive space travelling creature, which is so big it has it's own atmosphere, allowing transportation of units. I don't know how it can be implemented.
- The Scavenger is a merc Roach group, due to there already being two splits.
- The Cobra's blinding cloud would have a DoT effect, while the other evo would change Abduct.
As for a link to the actual page, here is an extended list:
