This week, PC gamers will get to boost their Starcraft II gaming with Heart of the Swarm, while the PS3 gamers can get their fix of decapitation and violent executions with God of War: Ascension; meanwhile, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 waits in the shadows.

Starcraft II: Heart of the Swarm (PC) – 12 March

After a painfully long wait, Starcraft II’s expansion, Heart of the Swarm, finally drops this week.

Heart of the Swarm picks up the story of StarCraft II where Wings of Liberty left off, focusing on Kerrigan’s quest to reunite the Swarm and exact revenge on Arcturus Mengsk.

New units will make an appearance, while certain existing units from Wings of Liberty will be updated with new capabilities.

Group and clan systems; unranked matchmaking; Global Play; additional stat tracking; user interface improvements; an enhanced physics system; multiplayer replays; and a levelling system are just some of the additions that are coming with Heart of the Swarm.

God of War: Ascension (PS3) – 13 March

God of War: Ascension arrives for PS3 owners this week, and will take us back to the origins of Kratos’ rage-fuelled journey.

The game has already been pulling in some good reviews, saying that its one of the strongest God of War games, despite a few small shortcomings.

Competitive multiplayer should also add a new element to the gameplay, as for a first-time in the series, players will be able to create their own warrior, select a god to worship and take to a number of different arenas in order to battle it out for supremacy.
