Heroes of the Storm Trailer: Sylvanas, Queen of the Forsaken
Queen Sylvanas Windrunner is leaving the protection of her zombie-filled city underneath Lordaeron to join the rest of Blizzard's famous faces in the MOBA, Heroes of the Storm.
Blizzard has announced that Queen Sylvanas has joined the ranks of Heroes of the Storm. For those who don't remember, Sylvanas Windrunner was the ranger-general of Silvermoon, who was killed by the Lich King, Arthas Menethil, and his army of the undead. After she died, Arthas resurrected her as a Banshee. When Arthas was nearly killed by Illidan Stormrage, Sylvanas and other forces of the undead broke free from his control, giving us control of the undead race we can play in World of Warcraft. Sylvanas has multiple awesome moves, including her Wailing Arrow, Haunting Wave, Shadow Dagger, Withering Fire and the ability to possess other units (both minions and mercenaries) with her Banshee powers. Sylvanas has a high DPS rate and is meant to cater to all you rogue fans out there. We have a feeling her ranger-general elf look will available as a premium skin that you could buy for the hero.
Polygon reports that Blizzard is adding a new map to Heroes of the Storm, called Tomb of the Spider Queen. This map is one of HotS' smallest maps, with all of its major lanes tightly-woven together. In Northrend fashion, you can summon a spider queen to help with your fight if you collect enough gems throughout the level.
Blizzard has also announced that it is hosting a massive eSports tournament for Heroes of the Storm, which has the awesome title of Heroes of the Dorm. This collegiate tournament will take place online across North America and will let students rep their school to hopefully earn over $450,000 in tuition and other prizes. Fans and eSports watchers can even fill out fantasy brackets and start cheering for their favorite school to win. More info about this tourney can be found at Heroesofthedorm.com
