This week the folks over at Blizzard Entertainment have been rolling out character previews for their upcoming MOBA Heroes of the Storm. First they highlighted the Diablo III character set, then the StarCraft II playable heroes, and rounded out their Warcraft III personalities. Here is the complete list of heroes:
All in all it looks like a great starting lineup. There are definitely characters who I'd love to see show up in this game, but I'm not the game balance person, I'm the lore person, so when we talk about playable characters I'm not really into making sure no one is overpowered. Granted, if you go from a balancing of the IPs tack, Warcraft III is clearly overpowered in sheer numbers. At first glance this might be an indication that Blizzard is favoring the Warcraft IP, but they might be adding more characters from the expansions to Starcraft II and Diablo III down the line. Plus there's that 4th IP floating out in the Nether. Me, I sort of want to play as the Inkeeper from Hearthstone, but that's just me.
What do you think of the Heroes of the Storm character lineup? Who are you itching to play?
Watching Diablo ride off on that horse cracked me up, though I think I'd like to play Malfurion or Kerrigan. Yeah I'll play Kerrigan and cry over not having a proper Ghost game.
