Level Up with Heart of the Swarm

Seeming to take a cue from Call of Duty (or it’s Diablo?), the next Starcraft II chapter will feature an experience and levelling system, as revealed by Blizzard in a recent blog post.

Through the new system, you’ll “earn XP for the race you’re playing with each unit you build or destroy”. So playing the game basically. Each race will have a maximum of 20 levels, with goodies unlocked along the way. What sort of goodies? Well, portraits for your profile, which Blizzard promises will “get more and more epic as you progress in a race”.

I don’t think I can muster as much enthusiasm as they have on this, but it seems to be the beginning of a new meta-game for Starcraft II.
