Prepare yourself to enter a storm of intense, chaotic, team-based brawling. Unlock powerful, iconic heroes from every corner of Blizzard’s epic universes and engage in the endless battle for glory, survival, and just plain fun…
Each hero offers different strengths and weaknesses depending on their role. Heroes of the Storm offers plenty of ways to customise how your hero fights and looks. You’ll choose from an array of unique masteries, heroic abilities, and combat styles that can fundamentally change the way each hero does battle. Skins round out the appearance of your hero, while mounts get you around the battleground in speed and in style. Is that Raynor riding a rainbow pony?
Heroes of the Storm concentrates the intense battles and back-and-forth gameplay of online brawlers into fun, quick, action-packed matches. Though you can knock out a few games pretty rapidly, you may find yourself constantly wanting to jump into "just one more" game. There's no "I" in team. Heroes features approachable team-based play without sacrificing depth or variety. Whether it’s joining with allies in a group fight, or working together to overcome each battleground’s unique challenges, you’re rewarded for playing as a team. And the hero roles run the gamut from stone-cold death-dealers, to town-razing specialists, to pure healers—each capable of making distinct, valuable contributions to their team’s war effort. The game even includes some very specialised heroes, like Abathur, who offsets his lack of head-to-head impact with special abilities that affect the entire battleground.
Heroes of the Storm has a number of unique battlegrounds, each of which is characterised by a core legendary event that shapes the strategy for the entire match. One battleground features a ghostly pirate ship, whose captain will accept payment of gold doubloons in order to train his ship’s cannons on enemy positions. Another battleground includes an underground level, where bones must be collected to summon a fearsome golem to attack your enemies above ground.
Friendly and enemy towns dot the pathways between each base, and each town includes structures such as gates to prevent enemy movement and healing fountains for health and mana regeneration, in addition to a protective guard tower. Capturable watchtowers also mark important positions on many battlegrounds, offering vision on key areas.
- Storm epic battlegrounds – Discover the secrets of each battleground to maximize your chances of victory. Ghostly pirate ships, the fickle Raven Lord, and grave golems can be just as deadly as the opposing team. Adjust your strategy to the surroundings—or face crushing defeat.
- Summon eternal heroes – Unlock the five epic heroes in this Starter Pack, then expand your collection by purchasing or unlocking additional heroes and villains from more than twenty years of Blizzard games.
- Smash your enemies in style – Distinguish yourself in battle with dozens of unique heroes, skins, and mounts. Customize your hero’s talents and abilities, then dish out ruin in the form of strafing frost wyrms, all-consuming hellfire, and so much more.
