Heroes of the Storm: Mehr zur Heldenauswahl und zum Spiel

In einem neuen Blog-Beitrag stellt Blizzard nun mehr zu Heroes of the Storm vor. Ihr werdet im Spiel die Möglichkeit haben jede Woche einen von fünf Helden auszuwählen. Diese rotieren wöchentlich am Mittwoch. Wenn ihr genug Erfahrung gesammelt und Level 7 erreicht habt kommt ein weiterer Held dazu, so dass ihr insgesamt sechs Helden in einer wöchentlichen Rotation zur Auswahl habt.

Wenn ihr einen Helden permanent zu eurem Arsenal hinzufügen wollt, dann habt ihr die Möglichkeit mittels einer Währung namens Gold diesen zu kaufen. Gold könnt ihr durch Aufgaben im Spiel erhalten. Ab Level 5 könnt ihr Gold verdienen und mit jedem Level könnt ihr mehr erhalten. Mit Level 6 werden zudem die Daily Quests freigeschalten.

Egal, ob ein Held gerade in der Rotationsauswahl ist oder nicht, habt ihr immer die Möglichkeit einen Helden zu testen durch das “Try Me” System. Dieses System erlaubt es euch den Helden auf einer geschlossenen Karte zu testen. Ihr tretet dabei gegen Bots an und habt allerhand Freiheiten, um den Helden kennenzulernen.

Natürlich könnt ihr Helden auch mit Echtgeld freischalten und euch so das Farmen von Gold sparen. Vorbesteller von Reaper of Souls erhalten später die Freischaltung des Helden Valla ohne zusätzliche Kosten.

Des Weiteren könnt ihr noch viele verschiedene Skins freischalten. Manche davon könnt ihr mit Echtgeld kaufen. Jeder Skin wird dabei immer mindestens zwei zusätzliche Farbvarianten zur Verfügung stellen. Es wird außerdem individuelle Heldenquests geben mit denen ihr weitere Skins freischalten könnt. Zu Events wird es ebenfalls weitere Skins für die Helden geben.

Dann wird es noch Mounts geben, die eure Geschwindigkeit erhöhen. Jedes dieser Mounts wird dabei mindestens drei Farbvarianten haben. Die erste wird direkt verfügbar sein, während die anderen freigeschalten werden müssen. Alle Spieler werden mit einem Pferdemount ins Spiel starten. Weitere können dann mit Echtgeld gekauft werden. Zusätzlich wird es für Spieler, die während der Alpha oder Beta von Heroes of the Storm Echtgeld Käufe tätigen ein einzigartiges Mount geben.

Jedes Mal, wenn ihr ein Match in HotS bestreitet habt ihr die Möglichkeit Erfahrungspunkte zu sammeln. Überhaupt gibt es viele Wege wie ihr an EP kommen könnt.

Alles in allem klingt das doch schon einmal sehr gut und wir sind schon sehr gespannt auf die ersten Eindrücke aus der Alphaversion des Spieles. Was haltet ihr von dem was ihr bisher über das Spiel wisst? Sagt es uns in den Kommentaren!

We recently announced the upcoming Technical Alpha for Heroes of the Storm, and in the meantime we wanted to dig into the details surrounding our current plans for heroes, skins, mounts, our experience and progression system, and more!  


Heroes and Gold

In Heroes of the Storm, you’ll be able to take control of a variety of powerful heroes from across Blizzard’s expansive universes. These heroes can be obtained in a variety of ways.

If you’re itching to try out a new hero or wreak havoc with a familiar favorite, each week you’ll have the option to choose from five heroes that will be freely available in our weekly hero rotation. Once you accumulate enough experience and reach Level 7, you’ll also unlock an additional weekly hero rotation slot, giving you a total of six free heroes to choose from each week. The hero rotations are updated every Tuesday, so make sure to check-back often to see which weekly heroes are available for free-play.

If you’re interested in adding a hero to your arsenal permanently, you’ll also be able to purchase heroes using a currency called gold which you’ll be able to earn by completing in-game objectives. Players will unlock the ability to start earning gold at Level 5, and you will be awarded more of this valuable currency as you level up, as well as for completing Daily Quests, which are unlocked at Level 6.

Whether or not a hero is currently on rotation, you’ll also be able to take them out for a test drive using our “Try Me” system. This system allows you to test out individual heroes on a closed custom map where you can try out different abilities and talents at your leisure, away from the non-stop action of regular games. You’ll be able to toggle minions and bots, refresh forts, repick Heroic Abilities, and clear cooldowns to your heart’s content, which should give you a good feel of what to expect when you take your favorite heroes out onto the field of battle.

If you’re eager to unlock a hero, you’ll also be able to purchase one with real money. Additionally, players who pre-order Diablo III: Reaper of Souls will be granted a future unlock of Valla the Demon Hunter at no additional cost.


Skins and Tints

If a plethora of iconic Blizzard characters wasn’t enough, you will also be able to unlock and purchase a variety of custom appearances that will help you stand out among friend and foe and infuse your personal flavor into the Nexus universe.

Each skin, including a hero’s starting skin, will have at least two additional tints available, for a total selection of three or more available tints per skin. A hero’s original tint is immediately available, and each of the two additional tints can be unlocked for individual heroes through Hero Quests. The first unlockable tint is awarded after completing an individual hero’s second Hero Quest, and the second unlockable tint is awarded after completing an individual hero’s fourth Hero Quest.

While each hero will have a free base skin associated with it, there will also be a variety of exciting additional skins available for each hero! These skins can be obtained in several ways. Some can be purchased with real money, and going forward we plan to not only give away skins at events, but we also intend to eventually award an additional skin for heroes after players have completed an individual hero’s sixth Hero Quest.

Like a hero’s original color tint, each skin’s two additional tints can be unlocked for individual heroes through Hero Quests.


Mounts

Eager for a little extra speed? Our fresh take on the team brawler also includes a mount system that is a sure-fire way to get you where you need to go in the Nexus. A variety of exciting mounts will be available to players to customize their look as they charge into the fray of battle, or chase down that fleeing enemy hero.

Each mount will include at least three available tints. The first is immediately available, and the remaining two tints will be unlocked for individual heroes after completing their fifth Hero Quest. All players will start with a free horse mount, and additional mounts can be purchased with real money. In addition, a unique mount will also be given as a reward to players who make a real money purchase during the Alpha and Beta phases of testing.


Experience and Progression

As you can see, increasing your overall Level carries with it some great perks, such as being able to earn gold, which enables you to unlock heroes and work towards completing their individual Hero Quests, which in-turn awards you with unlockable skins and tints.

You will be able to increase your Level by earning experience, and there are a number of ways to do so. Each time you play a game of Heroes of the Storm, you’ll have the ability to earn experience based on your achievements in-game, as well as a win bonus for players of the winning team, and a friend bonus that is granted when you are teaming up with your Battle.net friends.

Players will also be able to gain experience by completing quests. Daily quests are unlocked at Level 6, and from that point onward, players will be able to get one daily quest per day, and they will have the option of having up to a maximum of three daily quests active in their log at any given time.

In addition to completing daily quests for bonus experience, players will also be able take up the challenge and embark on Hero Quests, which are unlocked at Level 10 and 20. The first set of these quests, unlocked at Level 10, will allow players to dig into individual heroes and complete a series of three Basic Hero Quests (Hero Quests 1, 2, and 3). After reaching Level 20, players will be able to progress their individual characters through a series of Epic Hero Quests (Hero Quests 4, 5, and 6). Keep in mind that completing Hero Quests will not only award you with experience, but completing specific Hero Quests will also unlock additional ways to further customize the appearance of your favorite heroes and mounts this side of Azeroth, the Koprulu Sector, Sanctuary, and beyond!


We’re excited for the months ahead, and we hope you enjoyed this first look into our current plans for heroes, skins, mounts, and our experience and progression system in Heroes of the Storm! Please keep in mind that as Heroes of the Storm is still under development, our plans may evolve as the game moves towards release, and we’ll be sure to share additional details with you as they become available.
