Just in case you don't know it (that would be really weird!), let us tell you that Blizzard's MOBA free to play title brings together iconic characters from Blizzard's franchises: Starcraft, Warcraft and Diablo. Like in any other game from the genre, in HoTS players can use special mounts that help them cover ground more quickly.

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.
