After months of closed and open beta testing, Blizzard is now unleashing its next major game franchise to the world. Heroes of the Storm, a free-to-play MOBA (Multiplayer online battle arena) game, is available to download and play right now for Mac gamers. The game originally began development at Blizzard years ago as a mod for their RTS game Starcraft II, but since then the developer decided to turn it into its own stand alone title. Heroes of the Storm allows players to control characters from Blizzard's three main game franchises (Warcraft, Starcraft and Diablo) in action-strategy combat. Blizzard says:
While the game is free to download and play, Blizzard is also offering a retail disc version of Heroes of the Storm. The Starter Pack costs $19.99 and offers instant access to five of the game's characters, a special character skin and an in-game Golden Tiger Mount that is exclusive to the Starter Pack.
Check out Heroes of the Storm Starter Pack at Amazon.com (opens in new tab) ($19.99)
