Blizzard Confirms StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Release Date
After nearly three long years since StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty's release date, Blizzard has finally unveiled an official date for its expansion, Heart of the Swarm. The upcoming extension to StarCraft universe will be available on March 12, 2013, and will be focusing on the Queen of Blades, Sarah Kerrigan. "With Heart of the Swarm, our goal has been to expand on the multiplayer action and cinematic storytelling of Wings of Liberty," said Blizzard boss Mike Morhaime. Multiplayer features appears to have been ramped up, making the game more accessible to all players. "Combined with features like unranked matchmaking and our new leveling system, this expansion elevates the StarCraft 2 experience for players of all skill levels," Morhaime adds.
StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm will be available for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Mac systems, with digital copies downloadable from the StarCraft 2 website. Aside from the standard version, Blizzard will also be releasing StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm in both a Digital Deluxe and Collector's edition, which retails at $59.99 and $79.99, respectively.
