Blizzard’s highly anticipated MOBA, Heroes of the Storm, launches on June 2, after an open beta which begins on May 19.
Heroes will feature more than 30 heroes from franchises such as WarCraft, StarCraft, and Diablo customizable with over 130 skins, 430 tints, and 14 mounts, and competing in battles across seven dynamic battlefields.
Participants in the closed beta don’t have to worry about their progress being wiped. Blizzard has announced that all progress and purchases will be carried over into the open beta and final release of the game.
In anticipation of the launch, Blizzard will be holding a special Heroes of the Storm livestream event in London on June 1. In the meantime, the Heroes of the Dorm championship match will take place on April 26 at the Shrine Auditorium & Expo Hall in Los Angeles and will be televised live on an ESPN network.
