Blizzard announced details on the upcoming patch 2.0.4 for StarCraft 2 and its installation process that will prepare the game for the Heart of the Swarm expansion.

Patch 2.0.4 for StarCraft 2 gives the game a redesigned interface with new menu screens and brings the launch of in-game clans and groups. The patch also adds new replay features, improvements to the editor, new matchmaking options including Training Mode vs A.I. Mode and unranked play, and a new “Players Near You” search feature that helps gamers find other players in their network.

According to Blizzard, the installation process for patch 2.0.4 differs from previous installations. It will consist of a two-part process.

First, players will be asked to optimize their build of StarCraft 2, which can take anywhere between 15 to 60 minutes. Players are encouraged not to cancel during this time, as it can cause issues with the installation.

Next, the download and install will begin. During this phase, players will be informed when enough data has been downloaded to allow them to play the game. However, players concerned about performance should wait for the entire download and install period to be complete.

No release date for patch 2.0.4 has been announced. The Heart of the Swarm expansion is scheduled to release on March 12. The patch is expected to be available before that date. Players can enable a background download of the patch now.

Blizzard recently released the opening cinematic for the Heart of the Swarm expansion. Gaming Illustrated’s Carl Armstrong shared his impressions of the video.
