    Yep, it would seem so.

    Incoming spoilers, you have been warned! This is information is what I have gathered from the in-game language files that was sent to me and from BlizzCon footage.

    The 1st mission consists of Kerrigan escaping from an Umojan Laboratory. Raynor and she take refuge on Umoja (part of the plot in the upcoming novel), but Mengsk finds out and sends a fleet to Umoja (In the BlizzCon trailer, you can see Terran Battlecruisers fighting, that's what that scene is) to retrieve her and possibly have her killed or used for further experiments. (such as controlling the Zerg) I'm not sure this actually takes place, but I think Kerrigan injects herself with Zerg DNA or undergoes some kind of procedure before escaping. (Theory, Semi-Confirmed)

    There is a Protoss prison ship called "Moros", and a giant Protoss ship called the "Daelaam Ark". One of these is the tileset used for "Star Station" and is actually seen in the BlizzCon trailer. The fact there are stasis pods with a Zerg Queen lead me to think it's the Prison Ship tileset, but the actual Star Station map lead me to think it's the Daelaam Ark tileset. Someone with the beta could and should confirm this. (Semi-Confirmed)

    There were a lot of things altered since the BlizzCon trailer. For example, there is a map where you can control the Hyperion and upgrade it, ala Star Battle. (In fact, it is probably where Blizzard drew inspiration from). In that trailer, we see the backdrop is the same as in WoL's space tileset (Braxis Alpha), but that was changed, since this supposedly takes place in orbit above an urban planet (Umoja or Korhal). (Semi-Confirmed)

    The Desert tileset is a rendez-vous mission on an uncharted world with The Mobius Foundation, I believe. I've actually seen that tileset used in conjunction with some new Terran doodads. (It's used for the Zergling evolution map) (Semi-Confirmed)

    There is a tileset that is called the "Immortal Forge", which is a Dominion Hybrid Lab. It includes some Hybrid structures. (Confirmed)

    There is a tileset, called "Skygeirr Platform", which was showcased at BlizzCon last year; It's a platform with an orange backdrop. There are many large cannons on the platform, and I recall seeing differently-colored Terran Predators in the video at BlizzCon.

    The leaked video is not the ending, nor is it meant to be. It is at that point that Kerrigan and Raynor part ways in the story and that the story joins with Legacy of the Void. Kerrigan literally takes the Zerg out to Zerus to "explore their destiny", as she states in the incomplete leaked cinematic. (Theory)

    Here is the list of all tilesets from the game:
    Char2=(HotS) Char Fortress (Volcanic)
    CharDunes=(HotS) Char Marsh
    DesertWorld=(HotS) Phaethon (Desert)
    DominionLab=(HotS) Umoja (Installation)
    HybridLabInner=(HotS) Skygeirr Lab (Space Platform)
    HybridLabOuter=(HotS) Skygeirr Platform (Space Platform)
    HybridLabXelNaga=(HotS) Immortal Forge (Space Platform)
    IceWorld=(HotS) Kaldir (Ice)
    KorhalCity=(HotS) Korhal City
    KorhalOutskirts=(HotS) Korhal Wastes
    KorhalPlatform=(HotS) Korhal Platform
    MoebiusStation=(HotS) Moebius Station (Space Platform)
    PrisonShip=(HotS) Moros (Installation)
    PurifierWorld=(HotS) Purifier World (Urban)
    Starship=(HotS) Daelaam Ark (Starship)
    Zerus=(HotS) Zerus (Jungle)

    Now, this is all me theorizing, but I think that Kerrigan is looking for a metamorph, according to some rumors, which is apparently a Zerg that can fuel its own evolution. There is a large lizard-like creature on Zerus (seen in the BlizzCon videos) that seems like it could be the source of all the large "vines" scattered across the tileset. I believe this is a creature Kerrigan is looking for, that she can infest/assimilate and then turn into a metamorph and push the Zerg to evolve as they were meant to originally.

    We will also be fighting Primal Zerg on Zerus:

    Model/Name/PrimalZergYagdraPortrait=Yagdra
    Model/Name/PrimalZergZurvanPortrait=Zurvan

    And since we've seen Kerrigan on the Zerus tileset looking normal, it contradicts the pictures showing Kerrigan turning into the QoB, same with the leaked HotS video. It probably either means that Blizzard has reverted back on this decision or that perhaps it is merely an evolution or upgrade which Kerrigan can take (like the many units in the game), or perhaps a specific focus (such as Swarm, Spec. Ops and Corruption) that allows her to turn either temporarily or permanently (while using the specific focus) into the QoB. The upgrade theory seems to fit, as Kerrigan has an upgrade, Psi Bolt, which allows her to use her arms to send bolts of lightning instead of using a gun.;

    Infestation

    Guardian Specular and Diffuse texture merged together:


    Looks like the flying Roach-like unit near the Banelings in the Zerg evos pic is using the Guardian texture. To be honest, the original SCII Swarm Guardian (Scrapped alpha unit, used in Lost Viking) looks more like the SC1 Guardian than this one does. I prefer that one over this "Flying Roach". There's even a modified version of it without the extra segments at the back and with a different animation that could be used for a SC1 Guardian. This one just isn't as faithful to the original design as the Swarm Guardian was. Perhaps it looks different because it's the Primal version of the Guardian? Hmm....I'll add to that that the Primal Zerg seem to have uprootable structures...Night Elves, anyone? New race is good, but they're still Zerg. What, are we going to have violent Zerg vs Redeemed, good Zerg now? x)

    And the Devourer appears to use the Overlord head.

    Indeed. Very intriguing! Also, remember that Blizzard has confirmed that Narud IS Duran. So it seems he is a Xel'Naga? What about him serving "a far greater power, one that has slept for countless ages"? What could be greater than the Xel'Naga? O_o

    And what about Narud referring to the Xel'Naga as "The Gods of their time"? It all sounds too awkward.

    Wait... THOSE are the guardian and devourer?

    Ugh... I liked the custom guardian from the remade BW campaigns (http://www.sc2mapster.com/maps/sc1-episode-2-overmind/) better...

    Well, if you guys want, you can always nominate me for beta key here:
    http://sclegacy.com/forums/showthread.php?t=14846

    If you guys really appreciate what I'm doing. x)

    (I don't have a beta key yet, I only managed to get my hands on some of the files)

    But yeah, the Guardian and Devourer look pretty meh, to be honest. One has a more detailed Roach face and the other has an Overlord face. By the way, there are some ominously-named "Cerberus" strings in the language files. I wonder if those "Pirate" or "Mercenary" or "Mengsk" units might not be by any chance Cerberus units. How neat would that be?

    What if...it's a Xel'naga that has managed to survive the ending of a past cycle dozens, hundreds, or maybe even thousands of cycles ago?

    Could be inflation of his own ego or just him playing his terran self very well. His ties to the Dominion are definitely related to those Hybrid labs.
