Whether it is Sylvanas, Za'Gara or Uther - pick one of the many Blizzard characters, group up with your friends and storm the battlefield. With the right amount of teamwork, no other player can stand in your way in this free-to-play MOBA.
Heroes of the Storm features different champions, all taken straight out of the Blizzard universe. Every character has unique abilities that, when used right, decide between life or death. Take the Witch Doctor, for instance: He summons spirits, animals and locust swarms to enfeeble his opponents and push through lanes. Then there’s Nova, a sneaky assassin that specializes in sniping enemy heroes from afar. In this MOBA, it is your team's goal to plow through hostile creatures and leave a path of destruction wherever you go. How you do it is entirely up to you, as long as you play together.
With games like StarCraft or World of Warcraft, Blizzard has put out some of the most iconic characters to ever grace our computer screens. We have fought alongside Sarah Kerrigan, defended Thrall with our life and endured the icy grip of the Lich King - so what’s next in store for the popular game studio? A combination of everything the popular studio have released so far. Heroes of the Storm will join the ranks of all Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas (MOBA) by heavily focussing on player-versus-player combat. Get ready to pick a champion and lead your team into battle and claim victory!
Formerly known as Blizzard All-Stars, the free-to-play MOBA has four different class archetypes: Choose the one you feel the most comfortable with. If you enjoy being in the front of the pack, choose a tank (like Diablo). While DPS characters have the highest damage output (like Illidan), supporters (like Tassadar) make sure their allies are shielded, buffed or rejuvenated as often as the ability cooldown allows. Quickly getting rid of towers requires siege champions - these engineers, including Gazlowe, usually wait for others to clear the coast before eventually charging in. Heroes of the Storm is available for Windows and Mac.
