Heroes of the Storm 2.0 is just around the corner, and we’re thrilled to announce that we’ll be kicking off launch week celebrations with a live event on Twitch! Join us at 11:00 a.m. PDT on Tuesday, April 25 for a walkthrough of everything coming with Heroes of the Storm 2.0, live interviews with members of the development team, an exhibition match between two of our top HGC teams, as well as a brand new cinematic, which will reveal the next Hero coming to the Nexus!
Where to Watch
Join us on Twitch to celebrate the release of Heroes of the Storm 2.0 during our launch event live stream at 11:00 a.m. PDT on Tuesday, April 25!
What's New With Heroes 2.0?
Don’t worry if you’re just now learning about Heroes of the Storm 2.0. Our event hosts, Anna Prosser Robinson and Kevin Johnson, have you covered. They will be joined on-stage by Game Director Alan Dabiri and https://twitter.com/kmicj for an in-depth discussion about all of the new features and changes coming to the Nexus with Heroes of the Storm 2.0, as well as their thoughts on Hanamura, Genji, and much more!
Hanamura Exhibition Match
There are few better ways to learn about a new Battleground than by watching the pros face off, which is why we’ve invited FNATIC and Team Dignitas, two of our top European HGC teams, to duke it out on Hanamura during the launch event! Cheer them on as they compete in a five-game exhibition match, where they’ll take home $1,000 USD for every win they rack up.
While all of the games will have already been played prior to the stream, Wade ‘Dreadnaught’ Penfold and Thomas ‘Khaldor’ Kilian will be live in the studio to cast every bit of the action. The developers will also be there to provide additional commentary about Hanamura’s design. After the first game, we’re going to unveil a brand new Hero and cinematic, and the rest of the exhibition will continue at 12:00 p.m. PDT.
Exclusive New Cinematic and Hero Reveal
Stay tuned after the first Hanamura exhibition game to catch the worldwide debut of our brand new cinematic, which will unveil the next Hero who will be joining the Nexus in the weeks to come. Once you’ve watched the cinematic, we’ll head back to Anna, Kevin, and the Heroes devs to discuss the new Hero, as well as share details about the rewards you’ll earn by completing the Nexus Challenge 2.0.
The party doesn’t end there! We’re keeping the launch celebration going with the four remaining games from our Hanamura Exhibition Match between Team Dignitas and FNATIC. If you haven’t had the chance to check out Hanamura during the Heroes 2.0 Open Beta, or you simply love high-level Heroes play, then this is an exhibition match you’ll want to stick around for!
We hope you’re excited to join in the Heroes of the Storm 2.0 festivities during our launch event! Set a reminder for 11:00 a.m. PDT on April 25 and be sure to tune in to Twitch.tv/blizzheroes.
Until then, we'll see you in the Nexus!
