Blizzard Details Heroes of the Storm "Eternal Conflict" Diablo Themed Event
Technically starting on June 30th, Blizzard Entertainment will be holding a months long Diablo themed event called "Eternal Conflict" in their free to play MOBA, Heroes of the Storm. Unofficially, the event has already started with the inclusion of Johanna the Crusader from Diablo 3 in the character roster.
"This is something the players have been asking for," added Alan Dabiri, technical director on Heroes of the Storm. "Up until now, we've had all these different battlegrounds, but they haven't been in our Blizzard universe. This is the first opportunity for players to see one of their favorite game worlds... and we'll keep doing that."
Eternal Conflict will add the previously teased "Heaven and Hell" battleground designed around the 4th Act from Diablo 3. This smaller map forces multiple choke points and ambush points and encourages players to engage in epic battles against Immortals and other players. If your team's Immortal stays alive, they'll join your team in combat against the opposing team.
Starting with the melee fighter, The Butcher (releasing in a few weeks), Blizzard plans to also release Heroes on a more frequent timetable. While Diablo will be the main focus over the next few months, expect Blizzard to cycle through other long running IPs after that.
Check out Blizzard's page for a full video reveal and a special video showcasing The Butcher's skills in action.
