Heart of the Swarm Confirmed For March 11 Next Year

Reliable sources have told us that StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm will release on March 11 2013, confirming rumours seen earlier today on social media.

The SEA server will be one of the first in the world to go live on March 11 2012, at 7pm Singapore time (GMT +8). This is to coincide with New Zealand’s midnight launch on March 12 2013.

Standard editions of Heart of the Swarm will retail for S$49.90 or RM125. The Collector’s Edition will be available at S$128 or RM318.

Preorders begin at Licence2Play, the local gaming expo running from Dec 7 to Dec 9 2012. There will also be a sizeable Blizzard presence at the con, details of which can be read here. Visitors who preorder Heart of the Swarm at Licence2Play 2012 will receive beta access to the game.

Participating retail stores in Singapore and Malaysia start their preorders on Dec 10 2012 – and yes, they will also be giving out beta keys while stocks last.
