heroes of the storm 2

Blizzard has announced that its MOBA Heroes of the Storm just entered closed beta. The beta brings a few additions, including: a new hero from World of Warcraft, Thrall, Warchief of the Horde; Sky Temple, a new 3-lane Battleground,and more – you can read all about it here.

Blizzard was cool enough to create a video detailing what you should expect from the closed beta, if you’re lucky enough to be a part of it. If not, you can still sign up and cross your fingers. We’ll definitely check this game out and tell you what we think of this MOBA and its ambitious goal of getting up there right next to SMITE, Dota 2 and League of Legends.

    It’s weird that they didn’t have characters like Tracer and Winston ready to go for when Overwatch was announced, come to think of it. There is more hype for Overwatch based on that reveal than I feel like HotS has mustered up in it’s entire existence so far. I’m sure it’ll be fine, but still… who wouldn’t want to play as Overwatch’s cute, time-stopping British teen or bespeckled Gorilla-in-a-super-suit? Like how Mighty No.9 made his playable debut in Mighty Gunvolt months ago, it’s just cool to see! :)

    Besides, you know they’ll all end up in there eventually. Heck, I’m sure they’ll find a way to do a big Expansion for this particular lane pusher where the cast of Overwatch “invades” the game or something later on.

    My friend enjoys the game, they made it pretty clear though that the game is a really dumbed down version of MOBAs and extremely casual so I don’t have too much interest in the game personally.

      Skylent’s first impression is that it’s not a true rival to LoL or Dota 2, and your comment confirms that. Well, I was expecting Blizzard to really go big and compete with the top dogs, but now I’m beginning to doubt it.
