Blizzcon has started...Blizzard details Heroes of the Storm gameplay and characters
Proceeding began at the event, which takes place in the Anaheim Convention Centre in LA, with an opening keynote from Blizzard Entertainment president and co-founder Mike Morhaime.
This was followed by a trailer for Heroes of the Storm, which is designed to celebrate a long history of Blizzard's properties in one game. You can watch gameplay and cinematic trailers below, as well as a developer interview featuring Game Director Dustin Browder, Senior Game Producer Kaeo Milker, and Senior Art Director Samwise Didier.
Heroes of the Storm, a MOBA in the same vein of Valve's DoTA and Riot's League of Legends, will feature characters from across the StarCraft, Warcraft and Diablo universes. The trailer showed Jim Raynor, Diablo and a Ghost squad member squaring off.
World of Warcraft expansion Warlords of Draenor confirmed[/url]
The next World of Warcraft expansion is Warlords of Draenor, Blizzard has confirmed.
The title was leaked earlier this week from trademark listings.
Blizzard's Chris Metzen took to the stage at BlizzCon this evening to unveil a new video, below, for the latest expansion to the massively multiplayer online game.
In Warlords of Draenor players will travel to Draenor, the homeworld of the orcs, before it was shattered into what is now known as Outland. Yes, that means time travel.
The official blurb: "Across Draenor's savage jungles and battle-scarred plains, Azeroth's heroes will engage in a mythic conflict involving mystical draenei champions and mighty orc clans, and cross axes with the likes of Grommash Hellscream, Blackhand, and Ner'zhul at the height of their primal power.
"Players will need to scour this unwelcoming land in search of allies to help build a desperate defense against the old Horde's formidable engine of conquest-or else watch their own world's bloody, war-torn history repeat itself."
