Heroes of the Storm
Blizzard’s MOBA Heroes of the Storm entered “technical alpha” yesterday, and now we have a full match of the game as played by Blizzard developers to enjoy. The match takes place on the newly updated Dragon Shire map, one of the many arenas in which players will be battling upon Heroes of the Storm’s full release.
Heroes of the Storm game director Dustin Browder and Kevin Knocke, manager of online broadcasting at Blizzard, commentate on the action as two teams of five duke it out for control of various shrines sprinkled about the map in order to destroy the opposing team’s base. When captured, these shrines allow that team to activate another shrine, the dragon knight shrine, which transforms one of the team’s players into a massive dragon knight. Thanks to his increased damage and defenses, the dragon knight is crucial for securing victory as he can easily lay siege to enemy structures.
Blizzard’s decision to not include a non-disclosure agreement with the alpha of the game means you can expect more details and footage of Heroes of the Storm as soon as the general public begins to get their hands on the title. Be sure to watch the game in action below.
