Heroes of the Storm Launches June 2
It’s already been a jam-packed year for Heroes of the Storm, and now it’s time to rally your fellow heroes and get ready for battle—the portal to the Nexus is about to bust wide open! We’ve just announced that Blizzard’s worlds will collide when Heroes of the Storm officially launches on June 2, following an open beta testing period that begins on May 20.
Heroes of the Storm will launch with more than 30 playable Heroes, over 130 skins, and 14 steadfast mounts, as well as seven dynamic Battlegrounds, each with unique challenges to overcome. And even more content, including Heroes, skins, mounts, and Battlegrounds, is on the way! Over the last year, we’ve also implemented more than 430 different color tints across our Heroes, skins, and mounts to help you customize your look and brawl in style. These color options will continue to be unlockable for free as you play your Heroes and seek to master them on the field of battle. We’ll have even more exciting Heroes developments in the coming months.
Remember that you can still sign up for the open beta via your Battle.net account.
Upcoming Launch Event
The Nexus is calling. Will you answer? To celebrate the launch of Heroes of the Storm, Blizzard will be holding a unique live-streamed event on June 1 in London. We’ll have more exciting information for you as the event draws near.
No Further Wipes
We won’t be performing any further wipes, so any progress or purchases you’ve made during the closed beta will carry through to the open beta as well as post-launch.
Thank You for Your Continued Feedback
We’ve enjoyed sharing the technical alpha and closed beta with you, and your feedback has helped us make Heroes even more epic. Thank you, as always, to everyone who has shared their thoughts on the game with us so far. We can’t wait to hear more from all of you as we move toward open beta testing in May, and the official launch in June.
