Starcraft II's first expansion, Heart of the Swarm, is launching on March 16 - with an invitational tournament.


The tournament will feature a match between Robert "PandaTank" Botha (South Africa), who will take on Silviu "NightEnd" Lazar (Romania) in an officially sanctioned MSSA event.

Botha represented South Africa at the IeSF World Championships in South Korea, while NightEnd came second in the World Championship Series 2012 Combined Europe.

The event will be at The Forum, The Campus, Johannessburg and run all day from 10 am, and you can register to enter via Megarom, who will be hosting the event with Internet Solutions.

Heart of the Swarm continues the story from Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty, taking place two years after the events of that game.

The story will focus on Sarah Kerrigan, the Queen of Blades, retaking control of the Zerg swarm.

The game advertises that as you play you will be able to shape your swarm with campaign exclusive units and events.
