The first major expansion for the wildly popular PC title Starcraft II will finally be releasing to a sea of eager fans March 12, 2013 for a discounted price.

Well, maybe not so discounted if you’re just calling this a simple expansion. Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm will sell for $39.99, but the amount of time and work that’s been put into it, along with what the developers have been saying, leads us to believe that there’s quite a bit of content waiting within. Blizzard has officially confirmed this early 2013 release date, and while you can buy this chunk of content separately  there will also be a bundle with the original Wings of Liberty for $59.99.

If you’re just one of the millions of people still playing the game, this is pretty exciting news.
