Blizzard released a rather sizable new patch for it's free-to-play MOBA -- Heroes of the Storm -- today. The update introduces a new special event -- Xel'naga Artifact Hunt, a new Hero -- Alarak, and a new Star Craft themed Battleground -- Braxis Holdout.
In the Xel'naga Artifact Hunt, players are tasked with tracking down SCV's and eliminating them before they can find the artifacts that have begun appearing the Nexus. Of course, it's not all killing. Once the SCV's are eliminated, players are welcome to collect the artifacts for themselves and earn some rewards.
The event is divided into a Daily Quest in which players will earn a 1 day Stim Pack for collecting 12 Artifact Pieces during a single game, as well as an Event Quest. The Event Quest requires players to collect 150 Artifact pieces before October 18. Those who are successful will earn a Xel'naga Artifact Portrait.
In addition to the above things, Blizzard is also offering players the chance to add another Hero to their ranks for free. Players can choose between one of three characters: Anub'arak, Thrall, or Tyrande. If a player owns any of those characters, they will be replace with Nazeebo, Sonya, or Uther. If all six characters are already owned, the player will recieve 4,000 gold.
This is just a small portion of new additions and changes that came in the recent Heroes of the Storm update. Like I said... It's beefy. To learn more about the patch, you can read the notes on Battle.net.
