Hallow’s End Skins Now Avaliable

by DannieRay23 on

A few weeks back we showed you a preview of 3 Hallow’s End inspired skins. If you loved them, you should be happy to know that these skins are now avaliable on the In-Game Store. You can get all three skins individually, or get 30% off in a bundle including Countess Kerrigan and Skelethur Abathur. You can see the official announcement on the Heroes Blog, and check out the release video below!...

Players all around the world are eager to join into the Heroes of the Storm Fun, but Alpha invites have been somewhat limited thus far. But do not despair if you haven't gotten a chance to get into the Nexus, Blizzard is giving its fans another shot at getting one of those precious Alpha Invites....

The Heroes of the Storm Alpha is back online, and it returned better than ever with a new patch introducing two new Heroes. The official Heroes blog has released  a short interview with John Hodgson, who tells us all about the Nexus’ new specialist. Check it out below! It’s time for another Developer Insights to get the inside scoop about heroes and their abilities. This time, Game Designer John Hodgson sits down to chat about the Lord of Sin, Azmodan. Trikslyr: We’ve got a question from Twitter. @Thunderclaww asks “Azmodan seems more like a general, commanding the legions of Hell to do his bidding instead of engaging. How will that affect him (and his playstyle in Heroes of the Storm)?” John: Thunderclaww, we are in agreement: Azmodan is a general, and his armies are legion. Azmodan was designed to match his reputation as a masterful (although overconfident) military commander and ...

 

The Alpha is back online!

by DannieRay23 on

If a return to the Nexus had you chomping at the bit, you will be happy to learn that the tech alpha is back online! If you were previously part of the Alpha and the Heroes Icon isn't showing on your Battle.net Desktop App, simply run the game manually from its installation folder....

When Blizzard reactivates the Heroes of the Storm Technical Alpha, it will reopen with a handful of much-needed new features – the bare bones necessities of the RTS engine it was birthed from – including the ability for players to set up custom games, sit in on games as observers (for shoutcasting, etc.), and review/share replays of completed games. Custom games will see the beginning of whatever competitive scene is to emerge in Heroes prior to its official launch, and given that a handful of semi-professional teams have already formed, there is sure to be swift uptake on the usage of this feature. Players can select their map of choice, and custom games have room for up to two observer clients in addition to the up to 10 player slots. The observer interface is fairly basic at this point, but if the history of observing in StarCraft is anything to ...

 

Community Corner: Studying the Storm!

by djtyrant on

While the wait for the Technical Alpha to come back up is coming to a close, we wanted to highlight some of the latest community creations. We are checking out a new show “Studying the Storm” from Anna Prosser and Jaycie Gluck whom are breaking down Blizzard’s newest MOBA/brawler and helping provide insight on the game while bringing on guests each week, some of which have included the likes of Idra and Four Court Jester. The show has two parts with a discussion and then a full play session to close out the show. We’re going to highlight their first episode which is a great starting point for players who are just getting started with Heroes. Watch as Anna and Jaycie go over the basics of Heroes game mechanics, talent trees, and strategy within the game. Part 1 Part 2 (Play Session) Studying the Storm broadcasts over on the Misscliks Twitch ...

Blizzard hasn’t wasted any time in the week downtime from the technical alpha and has continued with the hero week highlights. This week brought us an extensive preview of the traitor king, Anub’arak! Once a proud nerubian king, Anub’arak dared to stand against the Lich King’s invasion, but despite his bravery, he too fell to the unrelenting Scourge. Resurrected into undeath, the Traitor King now serves as a towering, weapon of destruction. But here in the Nexus, no one commands his power! The fearsome Anub’arak hails from the Warcraft universe, and in Heroes of the Storm, he takes on the role of an in-the-fray melee Warrior who excels at initiating fights and forcing engagements. This powerful nerubian is definitely an ally that you want by your side as you seek to conquer the Nexus! Anub’arak will bring another warrior into the fray and some seriously strong abilities! Make sure to ...
