Heroes of the Storm is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) where you can play some of the characters from the enormous Blizzard universe, including games like World of Warcraft, Diablo, and Starcraft.

In Heroes of the Storm you'll find characters like Tychus, Kerrigan, Raynor, Kael'Thas, Thrall, Muradin, Tyrael, Azmodan, and even Diablo himself. In total there are more than 35 characters from some of the best video games in history organized into four different classes: warriors, assassins, support, and specialists.

Gameplay in Heroes of the Storm will be familiar to anyone who's played LOL or DOTA 2: several players fight in teams on the Internet, in duels of normally no longer than 15 minutes. The key to victory in these battles is not so much individual strength, but the ability to work in teams. Synergy between team members is crucial to achieve victory.

The settings in Heroes of the Storm also play an important role in the game. You can find allied towns that will help your team, as well as mercenary towns that offer their swords to the most astute player. Each setting, in fact, has unique events that make it a completely different experience from the rest.

Heroes of the Storm is a Blizzard game, and that says it all. It will have strong competition, considering that is so similar to League of Legends and DOTA 2, but if there's a company that can do it, it's Blizzard.
Heroes of the Storm: The latest hit from Blizzard?

Blizzard’s quality standards are stellar, as you can see from both their list of released titles and the list of those that never made it out of the gate (Starcraft: Ghost, Warcraft Adventures, Project TITAN…). After embracing the Freemium model with HearthStone and its 30 milion users, Blizzard is now returning to try its luck with the trend established by DOTA 2 and League of Legends. Heroes of the Storm has been running on a closed beta for more than a year, but it’s only now that the public beta has been released with no restrictions and can be downloaded via Battle.net.
