Evolution of Abathur

We don't get to post a heap of behind-the-scenes stuff here, but while in London for the Heroes launch Phill Gonzales and I had an interview with IGN where we were able to show off some of our concept work.

Abathur's look in Heroes came over pretty well directly from Heart of the Swarm, but one thing that we had a challenge with was that originally it's implied that he's a huge worm-like creature that you only ever see the top of - which wasn't really viable in Heroes. So the concept ended up being pretty straightforward - we just shortened him down so that he can scoot himself around the battlefield.
One of the other things with Abathur is that with skins, you end up not actually looking at him while playing a whole lot (and the enemy sees you even less), so we want to add that flair to the symbiote and locusts as well so everyone knows what skin you're running around with.
