StarCraft 2 is getting a leveling system with Hearth of the Swarm, according to an announcement from Blizzard.

Players will “earn experience while playing Blizzard matchmaking modes and custom games on Blizzard maps,” and they will earn XP for their chosen race, as well as each unit built or destroyed.

Experience will be totaled once a match ends, and each race has 20 levels to climb which will also net decals and portraits, with each reward becoming more specific and “epic” as race progression is acquired.

The system will be introduced with the next beta patch.
