Pinoy gamers, rejoice! Blizzard's ultimate mash-up game Heroes of the Storm is officially coming to the Philippines! Color us excited!

What's the fuss all about? Check out the badass game trailer below and prepare to drool:


It's like Warcraft, Starcraft, and Diablo decided to do a threesome. And the fruit of this gametastic union? The awesome-looking Heroes of the Storm! As you can see in the trailer, you can choose characters from Blizzard's three most popular game franchises and pit them against each other in a game reminiscent of DoTA (or Defense of the Ancients, a popular Warcraft III spin-off). The main goal? Lay waste to the opposing team's base!

We were actually lucky enough to have playtested the game during the Reaper of Souls launch in Singapore. And we tell you this: Heroes of the Storm has the potential to become the next big thing in computer shops after Counter-Strike and DoTA!

You can check out our hands-on preview here which sums up the game in three words: brutal, fast, and uncomplicated.

"Our focus on team combat and map-based objectives makes the game accessible to new players, while offering depth for competitive gamers as well. We believe gamers in Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines will love playing Heroes of the Storm," says Paul Sams, Chief Operating Officer of Blizzard Entertainment. You, sir, are being prophetic.


But hold on to your pesos first, gamers! A little problem: There's still no word yet when exactly it will hit local shores. Blizzard and Asiasoft, the company that will handle the game's operations and marketing in the Philippines, are still keeping mum on release dates—because, you know, they want to surprise us all. Still, the news that it's coming fo sho is enough for us...for now.
