After nearly five years of public development, Blizzard's Heroes of the Storm brawler will go live on June 2, following a two week period of Open Beta access beginning May 19. No account wipe of any kind will occur, so all players with current access to the beta will retain their unlocked Heroes and content.

 

The complete post from Blizzard follows:

 

It’s been a jam-packed year for Heroes of the Storm, and now it’s time to rally your fellow heroes and get ready for battle, because the portal to the Nexus is about to burst wide open! We’ve just announced that Blizzard’s worlds will collide when Heroes of the Storm™ officially launches on June 2, following an open beta testing period that begins on May 19.

 

 

Heroes of the Storm will launch with more than 30 playable Heroes, over 130 Skins, 14 steadfast mounts, and 7 dynamic Battlegrounds, each with unique challenges to overcome—and even more Heroes, Skins, Mounts, and Battlegrounds are on the way! Over the last year we’ve also implemented over 430 different color Tints across our Heroes, Skins, and Mounts to help you customize your look so you can brawl in style. These color options will continue to be unlockable for free as you play your Heroes and seek to master them on field of battle. Rest assured that we’ll have even more exciting Heroes developments in the coming months.

UPCOMING LAUNCH EVENT

 

To celebrate the launch of Heroes of the Storm, Blizzard will be holding a live-streamed event on June 1 in London. Further information will be made available as the event draws near.

HEROES OF THE DORM CHAMPIONSHIP

 

The Heroes of the Storm open beta test will follow on the heels of the epic finale of the Heroes of the Dorm™ collegiate eSports tournament. Students from more than 400 schools across the U.S. and Canada have bashed and brawled their way through the brackets, with more than $450,000 in tuition and other prizes up for grabs. On April 26, the final teams will face off at the Heroes of the Dorm championship match, which will be hosted at the Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall in Los Angeles and televised live in prime time on an ESPN network and also accessible via WatchESPN—further details on the telecast will be announced at a later date.

 

For more information on this live event and how you can attend in person, please dive into our Heroes of the Dorm blog.

NO FURTHER WIPES

 

We will not be performing any further wipes, so any current progress or purchases you’ve made thus far during closed beta will carry through to open beta as well as post-launch.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED FEEDBACK

 

We’ve enjoyed sharing the Technical Alpha and Closed Beta with you, and your feedback has helped us make Heroes even more epic. Thank you, as always, to everyone who has shared their thoughts on the game with us thus far. We can’t wait to hear more from all of you as we move toward open beta testing in May, and the official launch in June.

 

Stay tuned for more updates, and we’ll see you in the Nexus!

 

After originally being showcased as a StarCraft 2 editor highlight at BlizzCon 2010 and evolving into its own game, Heroes is finally polished enough for a live release. If you don't have beta access, lots of existing players have free closed beta codes to share - ask around!

 

Over a full year of test play has occurred, and with over 9 million players having signed up for beta testing, the timing of the release feels very strong.

 

Blizzard's Hero brawler is finally leaving beta - the game goes live on June 2, 2015.

You can give codes out personally, but you cannot post them publicly. If you provide them via PM, that's totally fine!

 

Please specify if they're US or EU, so people are aware. :)

      Escape from Braxis is the first Heroes of the Storm PvE Brawl. Instead of fighting the enemy team, you will be surrounded by the Omegaswarm and the goal is to press through the onslaught and make it to the extraction point. Win three games to receive a standard Loot Chest.
      Escape from Braxis is probably the best brawl to date. It feels like playing Diablo in Heroes of the Storm!
      Blizzard (Source)
      Things aren’t looking great, soldier. You’re stranded on Braxis and the UED is overrun. The Omegaswarm has surrounded you on all sides, and your only shot at survival is to press through the onslaught, make it to the extraction point, and get off this forsaken rock. Will you fall victim to the Swarm, or can you work together and Escape from Braxis?
      Rules:
      At the beginning of the Brawl, your team will have the following roster of Heroes to choose from: Warrior: Artanis, Arthas, Johanna, Muradin, Sonya, Tyrael, Varian, Zarya Support: Brightwing, Kharazim, Li Li, Lt. Morales, Lucio, Malfurion, Rehgar, Uther Specialist: Azmodan, Gazlowe, Sgt. Hammer, Nazeebo, Xul Assassin: Cassia, Falstad, Greymane, Gul'dan, Illidan, Jaina, Kael'thas, Kel'Thuzad, Ragnaros, Raynor, Thrall, Valla Player Death: When a Hero dies, they can be resurrected by Allies after a short channel time. If all players die, the mission is failed. Players start at Level 10 and have access to their full talents with a few exceptions (i.e. Bribe) Enemy zerg Heroes will spawn periodically throughout the brawl and will drop new active items exclusive to Escape from Braxis. Push through the onslaught and survive to Escape from Braxis and win the Brawl! Rewards
      Complete three matches of Escape from Braxis to earn a Loot Chest!
      Find out more about the Heroes Brawl game mode on our Heroes Brawl site; and as always, you can find more information on this week’s Brawl by clicking the Brawl Info button at the bottom of the play screen when preparing to queue for the Brawl game mode.

      Winter Veil will be very similar to Hallow's End in terms of functionality. During the event, Winter Veil Loot Chests will drop and they have a chance to contain new and old Winter Veil skins. This year, Blizzard added new skins for Kharazim, Malfurion, Malthael and Valla and the Gingerboard mount!
      It seems that all skins have 5 different tints. A special thanks goes to the Heroes of the Storm reddit community and especially redditor iolixir for most of the screenshots.
      Redditor Davesendave posted all new skins on reddit. Some Heroes are getting new tints for their old skins.
