A new image has cropped up on the Heroes of the Storm section of the Blizzard launcher that shows a trio of candles sitting on a wooden table in front of a stone wall. It's unclear what it is a reference to, but speculation seems to be centered most prominently on Diablo's Deckard Cain. A few other names have been tossed into the ring as well, interestingly all from the Diablo series, including Adria, Leah, or Cydea.
Heroes of the Storm is turning two years old and Blizzard is ready to blow out the candles and celebrate with players. From May 30th to June 12th, those playing a single game will earn a Common Loot Chest. In addition, playing three games will net a portrait, spray and banner to the collections of participants.
Overwatch's D.Va will be making her way to the Heroes of the Storm Nexus. Blizzard made the announcement during a live stream event earlier today in celebration of the game's Heroes 2.0 update that brings a number of big changes into the game including loot boxes, sprays and much more (similar to those earned in Overwatch).
The Heroes of the Storm team is preparing to unleash the "2.0" version of the game and what better way to celebrate such a momentous event than by giving away free stuff? In this case, players can score TWENTY HotS Heroes just by logging in. Heroes are grouped together in any one of four bundles, each with a theme attached. The event will begin on April 25th and run through May 22nd. Once in game, you'll receive 100 gems, enough to purchase one of the bundles.
The fourth Overwatch character is coming to Heroes of the Storm as well as one of its original maps. Genji will be a "difficult" character to play and will utilize his signature shuriken, reflect and dash abilities straight out of Overwatch. In addition, his ultimate will see him use his katana to slice and dice the enemy.
