Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm introducing custom user interfaces

Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm will allow players to create custom interfaces using tools in the upcoming expansion's observer mode, PC Gamer reports.

Aspects of the game's user interface can be changed in size, moved or deleted entirely when the game launches this year, while font can be changed and user-customized assets can be inserted into the UI. The introduction of custom user interfaces is a significant boon for online tournament organizers, casters and those who stream events as this will allow them to complete re-design the look of the interface to improve viewer experience.

These options will not be included within the game client, however. Instead users are required to access StarCraft 2's resource directories to make any changes. A post on the official Blizzard forums, written by one of the team's designers, explains in more detail how players can do this.

StarCraft 2: Heart of the Swarm launches on PC March 12.
