We had a chance to catch up with Blizzard's Alan Dabiri, lead software engineer for StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm out at a recent MLG event in Anaheim, California to talk about the team's forthcoming expansion.

Among many topics covered, Alan explained how the new replay system works for not only watching replays, but how you'll be able to jump into the replayed game at any point.

"It also opens up some really cool stuff with pro-games. You can be watching a replay of, like, MarineKing and Nes Tea -- some really awesome game. Well, now you can jump in at a certain point, and actually play for them at a certain point," Alan explained to us.

"Then it has a really cool aspect to it as well for e-sports, if for some reason a tournament game didn’t succeed, or it failed for some reason -- the computer crashed, or the monitor shut off, or whatever it might have been -- now they can actually resume that game from the point, so it’s a really cool feature."

For example, some of the new features that we’re adding: one of them is multiplayer replays, which is a big feature that some of the fans have asked for, and we ourselves have wanted, and we didn’t have a chance to get it into the initial game. So that’s a feature where now you’ll be able to watch replays with your friends, where right now you can only watch them by yourself.

Woohoo! Finally, I've been waiting for this since before WoL came out. I'm sure it was mentioned as a possible feature by someone Blizzardy. Awesome to see it finally arrive.
