StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm Regional Release Times Detailed

StarcraftII

If you’re anxiously awaiting the Heart of Swarm expansion for StarCraft II, then you’ll be pleased to know that Blizzard has put out a list of the worldwide times of when the servers will go live.

The Heart of Swarm expansion pack will require a connection to the Blizzard Battlen.net servers to play. This means that if you somehow managed to obtain a copy early, it will not run on the servers. Players will also obviously need the original StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty to play the expansion.
