Na službenom blogu Blizzard je najavio da u novoj sezoni dolaze nove mape i velike izmjene u načinu rada nekih jedinica,  posebice Swarm Hosta. To bi trebalo uvesti malo svježine u scenu dok ne dođe Legacy of the Void. Izmjene:

Zerg

  • Swarm Host
    • Cost modified from 200 Minerals and 100 Vespene to 100 Minerals and 200 Vespene
    • Supply cost increased from 3 to 4
    • Movement speed increased from 2.25 to 2.95
    • Swarm Hosts now require the Burrow research in order to burrow
    • Swarm Hosts no longer collide with Locusts
  • Spawn Locusts – This ability has been reworked
    • Auto-cast removed, Spawn Locusts must now be manually cast.
    • Spawn Locusts cooldown increased from 25 seconds to 60 seconds
    • Casting Spawn Locusts no longer requires a Swarm Host to be burrowed
  • Locust
    • Weapon speed increased from .8 to .6
    • Locust duration increased from 15 seconds (+10 seconds with Enduring Locusts) to 25 seconds
  • Infestation Pit
    • Enduring Locusts – This upgrade has been removed
    • New upgrade: Flying Locusts – Allows Locusts spawned by Swarm Hosts to fly. Flying Locusts can use Swoop to land and attack
      • Requires Lair
      • Cost is 200 Minerals, 200 Vespene, 160 seconds
      • Allows Locusts spawned by Swarm Hosts to fly. Flying Locusts can use Swoop to land and attack
      • Swoop: Orders the Locust to land at the targeted location, allowing it to attack
  • Viper
    • Blinding Cloud range increased from 10 to 11

Terran

  • Raven
    • Point Defense Drone duration decreased from 180 seconds to 20 seconds

Protoss

  • Tempest

Bonus damage versus massive air units decreased from +50 damage to +14 damage.

U kraćim crtama, Swarm Host se više neće burrowati, i biti će slabiji mid game, ali sa kasnijim upgradeom Flying Locust može ići preko force-fieldova i totalno dominirati u ZvT-u i ZvP-u.

Nove mape koje dolaze iduću sezonu su:

  • Expedition Lost
  • Vaani Research Station
  • Inferno Pools
  • Coda
  • Echo
  • Cactus Valley
  • Iron Fortress
