Heart of the Swarm launch confirmed

Post by igoDrMacro on Tue Nov 13, 2012 11:23 am



Blizzard has just confirmed March 12 2013 release for Heart of the Swarm!
Three versions of the game will be sold; the standard edition (available both digitally and at retail), the Digital Deluxe edition (only available online) and the Collector's Edition (exclusive to stores).

While the standard edition will just include the game, the Digital Deluxe edition will offer a range of in-game bonus items for StarCraft II, World of Warcraft and Diablo III. These include three StarCraft II Swarm-themed Battle.net portraits, the StarCraft II Zerg Ultralisk “Torrasque” skin, a World of Warcraft Baneling Battle Pet, and the Diablo III “Blade Wings” item and Zerg banner sigil.

Anyone who opts to buy the physical Collector's Edition will also net all of the above, along with a behind-the-scenes DVD and Blu-Ray, a soundtrack CD, a hardcover art book and Zerg-rush mousepad.

Blizzard's Mike Morhaime said, "With Heart of the Swarm, our goal has been to expand on the multiplayer action and cinematic storytelling of Wings of Liberty. Combined with features like unranked matchmaking and our new leveling system, this expansion elevates the StarCraft II experience for players of all skill levels."

Standard edition is priced at $40, Digital Deluxe Edition $60, Collector's Edition $80. Also, I don't play World of Warcraft, but Baneling Battle Pet just gives me the chills!

HotS has clan support, i started IGO clan. When u make your name just use Mottzilla, and when u join the clan it adds [IGO] in front of it.
