Heroes of the Storm Offers 20 Free Characters

To celebrate the release of Heroes of the Storm’s 2.0 update next week, developer Blizzard announced that they would be giving away free bundles of characters. Simply logging in to the game once the update launches on April 26 will let you grab a bundle.

Each bundle has 20 characters, and is geared towards a specific playstyle. Here’s the official run-down, via press release:

Support and Specialist:

Playmakers in Heroes of the Storm come in many forms. The Support & Specialist bundle is all about keeping your team in fighting shape, turning the tide of battle, and providing the flexibility and strategic tools to conquer any obstacle. Heroes include: Overwatch’s Lucio, Diablo’s Auriel, World of Warcraft’s Medivh, StarCraft’s Abathur, and more.


The Assassin Mega Bundle is hyper-focused on Heroes who dish out destruction wherever they go. Get in your opponents' faces as a sustained auto-attacker, nuke enemies from the back line, or roam the battlefield to gank unsuspecting targets. Heroes include: StarCraft’s Raynor, World of Warcraft’s Gul’dan, Diablo’s Nazeebo, Overwatch’s Tracer, and more.

Tanks and Bruisers:

This bundle is brimming with Heroes who have no problem getting up close and personal. Create opportunities to pick off an enemy, peel threats away from your teammates, and lead from the front with the Tanks & Bruisers bundle. Heroes include: StarCraft’s Alarak, World of Warcraft’s Arthas, Diablo’s Leoric, Overwatch’s Zayra, and more. 


If you’re eager to fill different spots in your team composition, or are brand new to the MOBA genre, consider picking up this bundle to gain experience with a wide variety of roles and playstyles, including Warriors, Specialists, Support, and Assassin Heroes. Characters include: StarCraft’s Lt. Morales, Diablo’s Li-Ming and Johanna, World of Warcraft’s Greymane, and more.

Been waiting for 2.0 to drop to try and get back in Heroes. Will see if anyone in the bundles interests me but probably sticking with Sylvanas, Jaina, Li Li and Anubarak.
