Blizzard’s second HotS brand, Heroes of the Storm (as compared to Heart of the Swarm), is their entry onto the MOBA market. Considering their copyright wars with Valve over Dota 2, people were interested to see which heroes would make an appearance. Now we get our first unveiling.
Here is the tweet from Blizzard with the first bit of art for Heroes of the Storm.

So, who are the heroes? Well, it looks like Diablo is represented by the Witch Doctor as well as Diablo himself, Starcraft is shown with Tychus Findlay and Warcraft is loud and proud with Lady Sylvanas and the Lich King.
It’s going to be interesting to see how Blizzard fares on the MOBA market. There is already such a glut, and some of their most popular IP has already been in use for years. However, Blizzard generally knows what they’re doing. This game has been in development for ages, and despite numerous name changes, I think they will release an interesting product.
