Heart of the Swarm, the first expansion pack for StarCraft 2, will be launching worldwide tonight. The night owls among you will be able to play within a few hours.

Swarm continues the storyline begun in the base game. This time around, Kerrigan is the star of the show. Players will help her regain control of the swarm and battle Arcturus Mengsk. The game also comes loaded with new multiplayer units for all three factions.

The new content is accompanied by new features. The additions include clans and leveling. Blizzard is adjusting league play as well.

If you purchased the expansion through the digital Blizzard Store, you're able to download the game files in advance. You can play StarCraft 2 up until the expansion's ready to launch, too. You'll need to log out and in after release time in order to access the new content, though.

The launch times for Americas are below. Blizzard is careful to note that the times are subject to change, though. They'll announce any updates on the launch times through the StarCraft and Blizzard Customer Service Twitter feeds:
