April Fools: Heroes of the Storm gets Big Head Mode

Blizzard is kicking off April Fools Day by adding some huge noggins to Heroes of the Storm.


It's officially April Fools Day on the east coast and Blizzard didn't waste any time starting this year's wackiness. Anyone that's logging into the Heroes of the Storm beta is finding something… different. All of the games heroes have gigantic craniums, thanks to a new patch that includes a new Big Head Mode.

The details are all on The basic Heroes of the Storm 5v5 MOBA gameplay remains the same, however now all characters have massive melons to carry between their shoulders. While the size changes don't appear to extend to minions, they do extend to mounts, giving the game that much of a cuter look.

The patch will automatically be downloaded upon starting Heroes of the Storm. Look for Big Head Mode to last throughout April Fools Day.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
