Don’t worry if you’re just now learning about Heroes of the Storm 2.0. Our event hosts, Anna Prosser Robinson and Kevin Johnson, have you covered. They will be joined on-stage by Game Director Alan Dabiri and Lead Hero Designer Kent-Erik Hagman for an in-depth discussion about all of the new features and changes coming to the Nexus with Heroes of the Storm 2.0, as well as their thoughts on Hanamura, Genji, and much more!

Hanamura Exhibition Match

There are few better ways to learn about a new Battleground than by watching the pros face off, which is why we’ve invited FNATIC and Team Dignitas, two of our top European HGC teams, to duke it out on Hanamura during the launch event! Cheer them on as they compete in a five-game exhibition match.

While all of the games will have already been played prior to the stream, Wade ‘Dreadnaught’ Penfold and Thomas ‘Khaldor’ Kilian will be live in the studio to cast every bit of the action. The developers will also be there to provide additional commentary about Hanamura’s design. After the first game, we’re going to unveil a brand new Hero and cinematic, and the rest of the exhibition will continue at 12:00 p.m. PDT.

Exclusive New Cinematic and Hero Reveal

Stay tuned after the first Hanamura exhibition game to catch the worldwide debut of our brand new cinematic, which will unveil the next Hero who will be joining the Nexus in the weeks to come. Once you’ve watched the cinematic, we’ll head back to Anna, Kevin, and the Heroes devs to discuss the new Hero, as well as share details about the rewards you’ll earn by completing the Nexus Challenge 2.0.

The party doesn’t end there! We’re keeping the launch celebration going with the four remaining games from our Hanamura Exhibition Match between Team Dignitas and FNATIC. If you haven’t had the chance to check out Hanamura during the Heroes 2.0 Open Beta, or you simply love high-level Heroes play, then this is an exhibition match you’ll want to stick around for! 

We hope you’re excited to join in the Heroes of the Storm 2.0 festivities during our launch event! Set a reminder for 11:00 a.m. PDT on April 25 and be sure to tune in to Twitch.tv/blizzheroes.

So the loot chests in 2.0 will roll at the time of opening not the time of collection? So i can (and should) hoard them and open (and reroll) them when there is some seasonal stuff around so i have a chance to snipe it with my free chests? Can't wait for the reworks on a lot of heroes (mostly Uther) and to get some skins on my favorite heroes for free. Probably going to be a long week, like waiting for Christmas. Kinda afraid of getting a potentially very bad map for Hero League in the rotation where there are already a lot of maps I dislike (Garden, Blackheart's, Mines).

Dignitas v. FNATIC is an amazing way to show this map. I'm curious to see how the priorities shake out in the draft and the map objective at the top levels. It seems like it will be a lot like tower of doom which can be absolutely amazing matches to watch.

I think this is their first really big media splash for Heroes outside of tournaments or blizzcon, so really curious to see how it gets portrayed.

Yes, this was also answered in the last reddit Q/A.

  • Contents of Loot Chests are rolled at the time they are first opened.

Reveal ain't good word since we all know the hero already

Actually I think the hero they are talking about is the one coming after Genji, if you look on the HoTS 2.0 website it has another new hero coming on the 25th.

That would be fast but you are right I missed this point. Let's hype then!

I think it might be the long-awaited Kel'Thuzad, to celebrate the rebirth of Heroes of the Storm.

Considering we haven't seen a WC Hero in a while, it is plausible. And Kel'Thuzad's model was shown a long  ago.
