Blizzard is finally letting everyone know what Heroes of the Storm is all about with a detailed video walkthrough of the technical alpha. This video does not give any specific information about the gameplay, but it does outline a lot about how the online interface will work. The video below details a quest and experience system that makes Heroes of the Storm unique in relation to other MOBAs. They also show how the party system is shaping up, how they intend to let you try heroes before you buy, and the sorting options for heroes. Also, one of the heroes is a siege tank.

Along with that walkthrough, Blizzard has also rolled out a trailer and a list of the abilities for Tychus, a new hero and one of the company’s most iconic characters, seen below. You can check out his abilities, traits, and heroic abilities here. For a written summary about Blizzard’s plans for experience progression, skins, mounts, and heroes, check out their blog post here.
