The Zerg will get a bile-spitting, Forcefield-destroying unit called the Ravager. And Lurkers are back, finally. Infestors and Corruptors get new abilities, and you'll be able to upgrade your Swarm Hosts to send out flying versions of those pesky little Locusts.

The Protoss get a new unit called the Disruptor as well as armor tweaks for Immortals and a total Tempest redesign. Perhaps the most exciting 'toss change is the new Carrier, which can now deploy Interceptors to fight at specific target areas, rather than just going after individual enemies.
