Blizzard has put out a list of worldwide times when Starcraft II's first expansion, Heart of the Swarm, will launch across the world.

No Caption Provided

Seeing as Starcraft II requires a connection to Blizzard's Battle.net servers to play, even physical copies of Heart of the Swarm obtained early will not run before this time. Heart of the Swarm also requires a copy of Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty to play.

GameSpot's review for Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm is in the works.
