At Blizzcon, Blizzard announced a few new Heroes and Battlegrounds for their free-to-play MOBA, Heroes of the Storm. While it was mainly concept art that was released at that time, Blizzard has since released 6 new videos detailing each new battleground and some of the “quirks” in each map.




Each map features a varying number of lanes and some new mechanics to mess around with. Whether it’s the underground mines added to the “Haunted Mines” battleground or the ability to control a Garden Terror in the “Garden of Terror” battleground, you’re sure to find something unusual to change up some of the standard game play.

Take a look at each battleground and let me know which one you’re looking forward to the most!

    Other than the Haunted Mines map i feel like every other map feels the same gameplay wise.Overall though i like how blizzard added mutliple tasks possible in the map so its not just “kill the enemy stronghold” kinda deal but its like “u can do this u can do that or that or that”

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
