Starcraft 2 Heart of the Swarm's new units

New Protoss Unit: Tempest

A Tempest upgrade can increase its range to a staggering 22. That's from one side of your Starcraft screen to the other. Think of it like a glowing blue version of the Brood Lord, designed to pick apart turtling players. I built up a fleet of seven Tempests and floated them miles off the coast of my foe's base. Moments later, I'd won the game, his troops reformed into so much blue goo. In groups, they look to be devastatingly powerful, but they're also prohibitively expensive and need to be supported by ground units: their sparkly weapons don't do much damage on their own.
