Heroes of the Storm

Today Blizzard announced Heroes of the Storm will officially launch on June 2, 2015. The free-to-play online team brawler will begin an open beta testing period on May 19 with hopes to knock out all remaining bugs and server stability prior to its launch.

Heroes of the Storm brings together a cast of characters from Blizzard’s other gaming franchises including Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo. Players will be able to customize their favorite heroes to suit their play style on the battlefield. Team up with your buddies to take down computer controlled enemies or jump right into pvp and see how you match up against other players.

“With its focus on team play and fast-paced fun, Heroes of the Storm is a fresh take on a very popular genre,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We’ve built Heroes of the Storm in a way that makes it accessible to new players, but also challenging enough for veterans who really want to put their skills to the test. We can’t wait to see what Heroes brings to the co-op and competitive scenes once the Nexus opens up to everyone.”

Heroes of the Storm will launch with more than 30 playable Heroes and seven Battlegrounds with more on the way. Check out the cinematic trailer below and get ready for war.
