Heroes of the Storm

One of the top 10 most viewed games on Twitch.tv with a huge esports following, Heroes of the Storm is Blizzard’s Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) built to defy conventions in a genre they helped inspire. Heroes is populated by a rich catalog of characters and settings from across Blizzard titles.
