While Starcraft II fans have been eagerly waiting for the announcement of StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm’s Release date, Eurogamer managed to go one step ahead and grab a screenshot of Battle.net offering StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm up for presale.
StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm will be released on March 12, 2013 and you can proceed with pre-ordering either the Standard version or the Digital Deluxe edition right now. Battle.net mentions that grabbing the Digital Deluxe edition gets you the original expansion, Wings of Liberty, along with in-game items for World of Warcraft and Diablo III.
The bonus items include:
- Three StarCraft II Swarm-themed Battle.net portraits
- StarCraft II Zerg Ultralisk “Torrasque” skin
- World of Warcraft Baneling Battle Pet
- Diablo III “Blade Wings” item – Queen of Blades-styled wings for Diablo III heroes
- Diablo III Zerg banner sigil
Purchasing the Digital Deluxe lets you use Diablo III and World of Warcraft in-game items right away, while StarCraft II items will have to wait till the game gets released. StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm is available for purchase from Battle.net.
