Rebirth of the Swarm by CrainyCreations
The full-length feature of RotS has gone live today. The machinima video comes in at a whopping 60-minutes in length and initially began during the beta stages of Wings of Liberty (putting this at 2.5 years of blood, sweat, and tears!). Crainy suggests viewing this movie with headphones for the best experience possible. Go grab some popcorn, sit back, relax, and enjoy a [free] hour-long movie! If you enjoy it, don't forget to like the video.
The movie will begin just before the events of Starcraft 2 and will focus on one of the first full scale attack from the zerg on a terran planet since their four year long disappearance.
Most of the movie will be set on the attacked planet, "Cron II", which is controlled by the Umoja Protectorate, the second biggest Terran faction next to the Dominion. Cron II poses as a tactically important planet for the Protectorate, seeing how the planet is rich with giant mineral fields. However, as a desert planet, Cron II only provides rough living conditions, which causes it beeing populated mainly be miners and the marines to defend them.
Overall, Cron II is not ready to hold off a full scale Zerg attack on their own, so in an desperate act of seeking help, they send out a distress call into space - which is received by the Protoss mothership Tasiis.
