Starcraft II is a little game you might have heard of, particularly if you follow the pro gaming leagues. The latest addon for Starcraft II, entitled Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm, is due out in March.

The Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm system requirements are below, so read on and let's see if you can run it...

StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm System Requirements

Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm Minimum System Requirements

OS: Win XP / Win Vista / Win 7 / Win 8

CPU:  AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 / Intel Pentium D

RAM: 1.5 GB Memory

GPU:ATI Radeon X800 XT /  NVIDIA GeForce 7600GT

DX: 9.0c

HD: 20 GB Free Hard Drive Space

Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm Recommended System Requirements

OS: Win 7 / Win 8

CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ / Intel Core 2 Duo E6600

RAM: 2 GB Memory

Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 4850 /  NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT

HD: 20 GB Free Hard Drive Space

So just like in the previous addon pack, recommended specs have dropped Windows XP altogether. It's worth checking out the mammoth 20GB HD space you're going to need, though.

Despite suggestions that Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm was going to have the same requirements as Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty, there has been a slight hike in requirements. So if you're a keen Starcraft II player, be sure to tread with care.
