Are you a fan of MOBA games such as League of Legends and DOTA 2? Well there is some new competition coming into the scene. The masters of RTS and MMO's have once more decided to play their cards in the upcoming months, they have decided to step into the world of MOBA gaming, and this we can safely assume is their "Project Titan" - Heroes of the Storm. So far Blizzard has safely announced several heroes "Summoners" (Players) will be able to use from Diablo (Diablo 3 version), Sarah Kerrigan (SC2), Arthas (WoW), Malfurion (WoW), Gazlow (WoW), Valla (D3 - Demon Hunter), Naziba (D3 - Witch Doctor), Raynor (SC2), Tassadar (SC2), and Illidan (WoW). With this string players in the beta will get quite a few players to choose from, which is actually quite interesting, and we hope out of the hundreds of characters possible in the Blizzard titles that we could eventually see some iconic ones such as The Lost Vikings make an appearance, but even perhaps smaller versions of Deathwing and maybe even Krasus.
We can only wonder what it will look like and play like. If you are interested though remember to log into your battle.net account, enable opt-in for betas, and make sure to sign up for it! It looks like it could give DOTA 2 and LoL a run for their money in the MOBA market.
With this news are you interested? Will you try it out? If you play League of Legends or DOTA does this seem like it could threaten your time away from it or even your spending? Let me know in the comments!
