Opening trailer, beautiful cinematic
Heroes of the Storm
and it looks amazing. Kerrigan, Tyrael, Raynor, Nova, and Lich King are fighting each other. It's an homage to everything Blizzard stands for. Talks about its origins; it was at one point just a map, touring through the BlizzCons of yesteryear. Now it's become an actual game.
Alpha video of Heroes of the Storm is playing now. There are jungle camps like in Dota 2 and League of Legends, there are two bases. This is a standard MOBA with an awesome Blizzard twist. There seem to be iconic Blizzard type maps--a ship that reminds you of Theramore, Harvest Golems that look like something out of Westfall, and even mines that look like the Dead Mines.
"Heroes of the Storm is Blizzard."
Battlegrounds are NOT just maps. They are all worlds with their own characters and environments: "We're going to visit Blackheart Bay and going to collect treasure for an evil pirate lord. You can go to the Haunted Mines where you can collect skulls to combine them to summon a grave golem. You can go to the Dragonshire to capture two points, Obelisk of the Sun and Moon. One hero from the team can go to the alter and get transformed into a demigod."
It's all playable. Wow.
Rob Pardo took the stage and now we're talking about the origins of Hearthstone. It went from a tiny alpha that usually was forced upon employees to an overnight addiction.
Hearthstone open beta will be next month.
Elite Tauren Chieftain
is the special card for BlizzCon; sounds a lot like a Mad Bomber on steroids.
We heard you guys like golden cards, so there's going to be golden heroes. They are creating a NEW RANKED PLAY mode where you can earn these.
The new ranked play mode will be all about going back to arena--people loved arena and they want to make a mode that people like.
They're making an iPhone and an Android version of Hearthstone.
Long retrospective about World of Warcraft. Apologizes to the server engineers jokingly about how crazy AQ40's gates opening was. Also talking about the
--oh, the memories!
The next chapter in World of Warcraft begins. We all know it is Warlords of Draenor.
Talking about the early days and how the DNA of Warcraft created WoW. Could this mean Warlords of Draenor is going to be a throwback to TBC?
It all started when they opened the Dark Portal. Horde had their day with MoP, Alliance being referenced a lot here.
Warlords of Draenor trailer playing now! IT'S OFFICIAL!
"War is the lifeblood of this world."
