Heroes of the Storm welcoming Hanzo and Alexstrasza

Heroes of the Storm welcoming Hanzo and Alexstrasza

14:00, 04 Nov 2017

As if the hordes of Hanzo players swanning around Overwatch ignoring objectives like they’re god’s gift to murder were insufficient, the archer is coming to Heroes of the Storm too. Blizzard announced last night during BlizzCon that they’re adding Hanzo to their free-to-play crossover MOBA along with World of Warcraft’s dragonqueen Alexstrasza. He plings arrows, […]

Kel’Thuzad prepares chilly entry to Heroes of the Storm

Kel’Thuzad prepares chilly entry to Heroes of the Storm

12:53, 23 Aug 2017

A cartoon tells me that “Kel’thuzad, Archlich of Naxxramas” has found his way into Heroes of the Storm [official site]. The cartoon also revealed to me that I would have been far more into a He-Man/She-Ra style cartoon featuring these characters than I am into Heroes of the Storm.

Overwatch’s D.Va stomps into Heroes of the Storm

12:13, 17 May 2017

Mech-piloting, Dorito-munching pro gamer D.Va has joined the cast of Blizzard’s free-to-play crossover MOBA Heroes of the Storm [official site], arriving just a few weeks after Genji. If you know her from Overwatch, you largely know how she works in HotS, because abilities translate fairly directly between the two class-based games. She stomps around in […]

Heroes of the Storm gets Overwatchier in v2.0

14:54, 26 Apr 2017

Overwatch cyberninja Genji has arrived in Blizzard’s Heroes of the Storm [official site] and the mech-piloting digital sports superstar D.Va is soon to follow. To give them somewhere familiar to scrap, the free-to-play crossover MOBA’s update 2.0 has added a map based on Overwatch’s Hanamura level. HotS 2.0 also reworks the player progression and loot […]

Valeera slashes her way into Heroes of the Storm

Valeera slashes her way into Heroes of the Storm

12:09, 20 Jan 2017

It is time for my semi-regular check in with Heroes of the Storm [official site]. That game has reached the point where I’ll boot it up when a character I’ve heard of or who sounds mechanically interesting turns up, but nothing keeps me actually playing beyond that. Valeera Sanguinar is the hero who has brought […]

Continuing the merry romp across the Blizzard Entertainment Transmedia Franchise Expanded Universe, Zul’jin–no, you’re thinking of Vol’jin; this one is the Warcraft II fella, the Zul’Aman WoW boss–has arrived in Heroes of the Storm [official site]. No, you’re thinking of Hearthstone or Heart of the Swarm; this one is the MOBA. With the confusion cleared […]

Blizzcon Roundup: World Of Warcraft, StarCraft II And Heroes Of The Storm

15:41, 05 Nov 2016

There’s a lot going on at Blizzcon 2016 – new Diablo classes, Hearthstone cards and long-rumoured Overwatch characters for a start. If Blizzard keeps making games, how large could Blizzcon become in the future? Could it grow too large for Anaheim, California, perhaps? At this rate it’s only a matter of time before it engulfs […]

Heroes Of The Storm Swaps Arena For Brawl

12:16, 05 Oct 2016

Heroes of the Storm [official site] is one of those games that I enjoy when I do boot it up but I tend to forget it even exists until I get an email about it. For me it’s fun to dip into, but it doesn’t stick beyond that. Today’s reminder was the info that the […]

Heroes Of The Storm Welcomes Overwatch’s Zarya

14:27, 28 Sep 2016

A second Overwatch character (class? Hero? Overwatcher? Omniumumumanaut? wizard?) has arrived in Blizzard’s free-to-play crossover MOBA Heroes of the Storm [official site] as a new hero (Champion? Summoner? Lord? wizard?). Zarya, the pink-haired Russian with a honking great gun, arrives in this week’s update with her usual Overwatching abilities. A StarCraft-themed new map is in […]

Angels are an easy Halloween costume – rub a little flour into your Slanket [other wearable blankets are available -ed.] and tape an Aerobie Sprint [other objects can be thrown -ed.] onto your head – but they’re rarely cool, are they? However, I have always quite liked the radiant cheesecake murdergirls of Magic: The Gathering […]

That’s So Raven: Heroes Of The Storm Adding Medivh

That’s So Raven: Heroes Of The Storm Adding Medivh

14:26, 13 Jun 2016

Medivh, the conflicted wizard from recent documentary Warcraft:The Beginning, will be turning up in the Nexus soon bringing his magical mcgubbins to the Heroes of the Storm [official site] roster. I feel like you could use his treacherous nature to really interesting effect in a MOBA – like, maybe a random chance for Sargeras to […]

Every character in Blizzard’s free-to-play MOBA Heroes of the Storm [official site] will be available to play free of charge this weekend. Normally HotS has the usual MOBA deal of only making a small, rotating lineup of ten wizards free at any one time, wanting people to pay up (real or fake money) to unlock […]

I’m starting to feel like your accidental official Blizzard correspondent at the moment. I think it’s because I’ve been playing a lot of Heroes of the Storm [official site] and Overwatch [official site] so both are in my brain when I’m scouting for news. When I have time I should really update my thoughts on […]

Primal Zerg hero Dehaka is burrowing his way into Heroes of the Storm [official site] from the StarCraft-iverse to become the game’s fiftieth playable character. My knowledge of StarCraft lore is perhaps best described as “minimal” but there’s a short Hotline Bling reference in the Dehaka introduction video so now I have “You used to […]

14:55, 18 Mar 2016

Blizzard’s take on the lane-pusher genre had maps of various shapes and sizes, but it was missing a one-laner until now. With their latest, the Lost Cavern, Heroes of the Storm [official site] wants to give the community something they were apparently already trying to make on their own: a map with no objectives, no […]

I’ve not checked in with Heroes of the Storm [official site] in a while so the appearance of a spotlight video for upcoming hero, Li-Ming seems like a good excuse. She’s just been added to the test realm so she should be added to the regular HotS roster soon. We know she was being set […]
