Blizzard isn’t exactly known for mixing things up when it comes to new IPs. Even when it does announce completely new titles - as it did this year with both Heroes of the Storm and Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft - it can’t resist throwing in all the familiar faces from its old and beloved franchises, be it the Warcraft universe, Diablo or StarCraft.
In the spirit of this Blizzardy preoccupation, the developer/publisher has unveiled a new character trailer for upcoming MOBA Heroes of the Storm, where heroes from all of Blizzard’s franchises can battle it out in the arena. In this particular character trailer, it’s StarCraft’s Kerrigan we see giving her enemies the old run-around…
As well as some pretty cinematics introducing Kerrigan, the trailer also shows some footage of the Queen of Blades slicing up anyone who gets in her way with her zerg-infested mutations.
Heroes of the Storm is currently in its alpha testing phase accepting sign-ups for its beta. There’s no hint of a release date at the moment, but it looks like it could make a general release all things being well at the end of this year or the start of 2015.
Does this Blizzard Universe MOBA look up your street?
