The Heart of the Swarm Launch Event Site

PC Competitions Mac Blizzard Strategy


It’s official! With the launch of Heart of the Swarm coming on March 12, Blizzard is gearing up by launching their very own launch event website (here). This particular site will present all of the Zerg infestations/launch parties happening around the world 24 hours prior to the title’s release.

What will take place at such infestations? As not all the events will be the same, Blizzard mentioned that each location may have eSports showmatches, box signings, special guests, and surprises which they are waiting to reveal. Here are the details for Melbourne’s own launch event:

Cnr. Swanston Street & Flinders Street
Melbourne VIC 3000

The Swarm’s global invasion begins in Australia! Join the Zerg rush to Federation Square in the heart of the city of Melbourne, Victoria. From 8 PM AEDT on Monday, March 11, you can be part of the excitement in person or via the live stream!
