History[edit | edit source]
Game Unit[edit | edit source]
In the StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty mission, "In Utter Darkness", an omegalisk is located in each of the three zerg bases. No research points are awarded for killing them, but they are counted towards the kill score.
Development[edit | edit source]
The following section contains information from a previous version of StarCraft II which is no longer valid.
The ultralisk tentacles were reverted because the skewering was too "random".
Additional abilities in the map editor indicate that the omegalisk was intended to function as a cross between the torrasque and noxious ultralisk strains in the Heart of the Swarm campaign. The unit has a chrysalis ability similar to the torrasque along with the damaging cloud of the noxius, though both are represented by buttons or are incomplete.

- This is the original concept piece for the 'new' Ultralisk in StarCraft II. The tentacles were fun to watch while skewing marines, but in multiplayer, the 'random' factor of that skewing did not fit into the competitive gameplay nature of StarCraft as well.
