Can't decide between Nova or Tracer on attack? Finally want to give Ragnaros or Cho'gall a try? Well, this weekend you can try anyone you like in Heroes of the Storm, absolutely free!

All 60 of the heroes in Blizzard's MOBA are free to play this weekend, starting at 10 a.m. PST on Friday, Jan. 13 and running three full days until Monday, Jan. 16 at the same time. This includes newer heroes, like Zul'jin, a ranged assassin who was just added to the game a week ago.

Also, in case you missed it, Blizzard did a 2016 retrospective on Heroes of the Storm, titled ... well, "In Case You Missed It." In all, 2016 saw 16 new heroes, 24 hero updates, 49 new skins, four legendary skins, 26 mounts, two new battlegrounds, as well as a bunch of other updates, you can see by watching the video above. Seriously, it's exactly what I just typed.

free for weekend.... come on PIG blizzard!!! 10K for characters is too much!!! if u want to compete with other mobas you have to reduce character price to minimum 7K and add more heroes like one per two weeks!!! thats why playerbase is low than other mobas... stop working on new skins and mounts!

Great for the guys who play this game but I like to stick to one character. Having more then 1 character is just 2 much work but good luck testing out all 60 characters during 72 hours lol.
