StarCraft 2 update: Terran Thor revealed

Those big guys are the Thors - Image 1For the lack of a heavy-powered alternative, it seems that the Terran forces wanted more siege power than Siege Tanks could offer. From the hopes of making a land-based powerhouse comparable to Battleships comes the Thor - StarCraft II's new devastating unit for the Terran race.

Behind its neosteel armor plating, industrial-strength electromagnetic discharges that can cause seismic shocks, two giant particle beams, and a dorsal artillery battery is a story of betrayal. The Terran Dominion tried to hide this beast from Agents of the Umojan Protectorate, and their fellow humans weren't very happy about it.

It's hard to fathom how development of such massive war machine was kept hidden for years since the Brood War, so let's just say it was more than a game of cat and mouse. Umojan spies struggled to unveil the mysterious weapon before a female operative named Ulli Trey got to the bottom of things. Her risky infiltration unearthed Project Thor.

Thor can be built by SCVs, making it a valid option despite its slow moving speed. Armed with particle accelerators called "Thor's Hammer" and an overwhelming 250mm bombardment cannon, facing one of these super mechs can spell doom. Even with hard counters that Blizzard's StarCraft II will provide, a solid strategy will be necessary to take a single Thor down.
