Blizzard Entertainment is introducing a new game mode for Heroes of the Storm that promises to offer a fresh take on the game each week, called Heroes Brawl.
If you regularly play some other popular Blizzard games, like Hearthstone or Overwatch, then you’ll feel right at home in Heroes Brawl as the rules of the new game mode will change every week. Blizzard promises there will be many variations to play through, and even offer the following examples of what kind of mayhem you can expect:
Hammer Time - Hover tanks for everyone! All players on each team are Sgt. Hammers – with thrusters are permanently engaged! The cores are invulnerable so it’s all about capturing towers to win!
Punisher Arena - Rack up points by killing enemy heroes and Punishers. The first team to score 100 points wins!
Lost Cavern - A standard map, except there is only one lane. How will you fare when the enemy is in your face at all times?
Heroes Brawl will feature three kinds of battlegrounds that have been specifically created for the game mode: standard battlegrounds with mutators, brand-new arenas, and single-lane battlegrounds.
There are a large number of mutators Blizzard has come up with, but doesn’t want to ruin the surprise of upcoming Heroes Brawl modes as they’ll add “completely new and unexpected quirks.”
Those who participate in at least three Heroes Brawl matches per week will earn unique rewards, like portraits, and 1,000 gold.
Heroes Brawl will be available to try out in Heroes of the Storm's PTR on October 10 with its official launch taking place on October 17.
