Blizzard Unveils One More StarCraft II Zerg Unit, the baneling

Blizzard today unveiled a new zerg unit, that will take place in the next StarCraft strategy game. Meet the baneling:
The baneling is a creature so bloated with fluid-filled sacs that it can barely walk; instead, it moves itself by tucking into a tight ball and rolling. However, this ungainly appearance belies the fact that the baneling is an extremely dangerous organism, one of several new zerg specialists recently seen on the battlefield. When a baneling gets close enough to an enemy, the creature triggers a reaction within its volatile chemical payload that causes it to explode with devastating force and shower the immediate surroundings with searing acid.
Blizzard has also added seven new in-game screenshots.

I hope they're not TOO easy to get. If you could drop a bunch of them into a mineral line that would be one annoying strategy.

Basically the same as dropping an infested terran or reaver there.

Last I heard when it was delayed again was for a fall or holiday release.

But don't quote me on that.
