Blizzard's take on the MOBA genre officially launches today after an extensive alpha/beta phase, bringing all your favorite franchises together for grandiose matchups and battles. Diablo and Jaina team up to take on Kerrigan, Thrall blasts Sergeant Hammer in her siege tank, and Murky... well, no one likes Murky, he just kind of splashes around and dies a lot.

Blizzard's take on the MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) is a highly accessible and decidedly different take from the three-lane base brawls that define other genre titles, featuring shared team experience, no item shops, and objective based gameplay on a variety of different maps.

Our full review will be live sometime in the next few days, but for now you can watch Daniel Tack and Wade Wojcik play a game in Hero League, one of Heroes of the Storm's ranked modes. Want a chance to win a Malfurion character and Storm Mantle skin? We've got 100 codes to give away, just say "Illidan" somewhere in a comment on this post!
