Watch a game of Blizzards upcoming MOBA ‘Heroes of the Storm’

Blizzard have demonstrated a full game of their upcoming MOBA Heroes of the Storm at this year’s Blizzcon.

The game seems to have comparably different mechanics to traditional MOBAs, such as Dota 2 and League of Legends. Also, the game will feature a variety of battlegrounds, rather than the traditional single map.

In this developer game, two teams of five battle over control of golems that are summoned at various intervals (Heroes of the Storm, PC)

Knowing Blizzards current policies catering to the masses, they will probably dumb the genre down, for the wider audience.

Ignoring the fact that a difficult to master game like Dota 2 is having a concurrent count of nearly 600,000 users on Steam, which is just as big as COD on any single console.

Gone are the days when blizzard games were easy to learn difficult to master. Now all we have is dumbed down games for the masses lol.

"they will probably dumb the genre down, for the wider audience. "

League of Legends has 35 million gamers, how much wider an audience do you need? LOL but I get what you are saying.

I think DotA2 is at 15 million. I like DotA2 better because it's harder to master.

Well most likely what you will get from blizzard is a game designed for thumbsticks, ignoring the original fanbase. Even though its evident games designed within this genre just for the PC are doing very well and have a massive audience.

It's in the blizzard "universe" though which other games can't say.

* Blizzard characters, music, art style, stories...ect..

Hate all you want. Blizzard games are still far superior to others. Wow still best MMO in my opinion. I got guild wars 2 & swtor an tried many others. Gw2 is the best of the newcomers but still falls short to wow.

Diablo 3 even with the mistakes they made in design choices like the AH an loot mechanics. It shits on Torchlight 2 which I played for like a couple days then left.

I haven't played any Moba game yet but Blizzard are very good at introducing players to a new genre. So their moba game I will try.
