Reminder: StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm needs Wings of Liberty

If you are getting yourself ready for tonight 12:01 a.m. PT launch of StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm, just a reminder: Make sure you have StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty still installed on your PC. This will not be a standalone expansion.

If you are getting yourself ready for tonight's 12:01 a.m. PT launch of StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm, just a reminder: Make sure you have StarCraft 2: Wings of Liberty still installed on your PC. This will not be a standalone expansion.

Granted, if you continue to play multiplayer, you will still have it on your system, all properly patched and ready for the zerg infestation. But those of us who aren't in it for the multiplayer (including me) will need to start reinstalling. If you don't have your game disks any more, you can still download it from your Battle.net account. Of course, if you never played Wings of Liberty, Blizzard has it on sale.

Also, Blizzard is running livestreams of some of the various launch events around the world, so if you want to see others having fun while you are sitting at home waiting to click "play," then tune in.

      I'm even considering trying to get up at 2-3am to play a little. I'm kind of an old man though when it comes to stuff like that and will likely fail in my endevour but. I am pretty excited about it

        I'll be reviewing the single-player game, so I need to get a jump on it ASAP. So I will probably be up.

        I'll be up extra early just to start the game off before work. Sadly the days of me staying up late on work nights are over.

      "But those of us who aren't in it for the multiplayer (including me) will need to start downloading. " you should try it this time man or some of the new AI stuff, there is a small hump to get over but then you really are matched equally with folks. I've always hovered around bronze/silver/gold and I have a great time with it.

      Just saying. plus you can join the shackgroup on B.net and play with us folks.

        I truly suck at the twitch style play. I've played a bit vs the AI and can win a few, but I am just not good. I love RTS, but I get crushed against live competition.

      My physical CE hasn't shipped from Amazon yet, and I won't get to play it until tomorrow night anyway.

      I don't see a place to preorder it on the Blizzard site. B & M only?
