If you're a Heroes of the Storm -- and World of Warcraft and Overwatch -- fan, Blizzard's got a lot planned for you in the coming months, some as soon as in two weeks.
A new heroes' brawl, Blackheart's Revenge, will be the first asymmetric brawl in HotS, offering classic attack/defend-style gameplay. Only one team has a core, and it's up to them to protect it from the other team's attacks, some via the ground, and some via the sea. It'll hit live servers the week of Nov. 15.
Two new heroes are also coming to the game soon-ish, both hailing from the World of Warcraft. Varian Wrynn is HotS' first multi-class character, able to play as a shield-bearing warrior or dangerous assassin, while Ragnaros brings “larger-than-life abilities” to the Nexus, such as the ability to incinerate an entire lane of minions or take over a fort and essentially become a raid boss. Varian goes live in the game the same week of Nov. 15, while Ragnaros is planned for a December launch.
Finally, there's the Nexus Challenge, an upcoming event that lets you and a friend take on all comers in HotS for fun and prizes, both in Heroes of the Storm and other Blizzard games. Play 15 games together to get an Oni Genji skin, spray, and player icon in Overwatch, as well as Zarya and the Oni Genji Portrait in Heroes of the Storm. Play 30 games for an Orochi Hovercycle mount for Heroes of the Storm, and a 30-Day Stimpack. The Nexus Challenge runs from Nov. 15 to Jan. 4.
You can learn more about all the new stuff on the Heroes of the Storm website, including details on the 2017 Global Championships, and if there's any more big HotS-related news coming out of BlizzCon, we'll report it here!
