Blizzard has announced that its formerly titled Blizzard All-Stars multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game has been renamed to Heroes of the Storm. The game, which was originally intended to be just an add-on for the developer’s hit RTS StarCraft 2, now seems to have gone off on its own.
While nothing is known about the game, you can check out its official website now and the teaser for the game, which can be seen below. The game’s initial teaser trailer confirms the long standing rumor that the game will be combine heroes from Blizzard’s past Starcraft, Warcraft, and Diablo games all into one game.
Stay tuned for more info on Heroes of the Storm as comes out undoubtedly at this year’s BlizzCon, which is going on from November 8-9.
Electronic Arts is gearing up to jump into the increasingly popular multiplayer online battle arena genre, MOBA for short, and according to a recent website, the company’s first big stride into the MOBA crowd is Dawngate.
Discovered by Internet sleuth Superannuation, the MOBA title is under development by Waypoint Games, a developer made up of a collection of ”sincere students of games.”
Dawngate is a new MOBA, built from the ground up to look and feel familiar while offering a whole new way to experience MOBA gameplay. Dawngate empowers you to forge the champions you love for the roles you want in a competitive arena, shaped by ever-evolving, community-driven content and story.
The website also offers players the opportunity to sign up for the game’s beta, only asking for their origin details in return. As for now though, whatever Dawngate is remains unclear and we’ll have to wait for an official confirmation from EA to be sure the game is legit (which should be very soon if you’d ask me).
