Heroes of the Storm is a game that you know we love, and when we find out big news was coming for the game today, we decided to speculate last night what that news would actually be! We did not guess a full LAUNCH on June 2nd. Sure, maybe OPEN Beta, maybe an official WCS, but did we think full launch? Not really.
However, we do credit a few listeners in our stream for guessing a summer time launch! You were right! Heroes of the Storm Goes LIVE on June 2nd after well over a year of testing in Alpha and Beta. In this Podcaster’s opinion, the game is solid and should definitely be able to handle load of new players storming the nexus. Also, the Game has to take advantage of the recent press and coverage of the Heroes of the Dorm Tournament! Here is what Mike Morhaime had to say…
“With its focus on team play and fast-paced fun, Heroes of the Storm is a fresh take on a very popular genre, 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.”
Blizzard will celebrate the launch with special Live event from the UK on June 2nd! So, we have to ask, how far are we away from a Professional International Tournament? And will we see it a Blizzcon? And, what other Heroes will hit the Nexus prior to Launch?
