About Heroes of the Storm

"Set aside whatever you think you knew about Blizzard All-Stars," Blizzard recently stated, "and get ready for what's brewing at this year's BlizzCon (Nov. 8-9, 2013)." Now known as Heroes of the Storm, the game was originally revealed as Blizzard DOTA, before being renamed as Blizzard All-Stars; there's a funny video that highlights this fact in the videos section.
