An invitation only beta test will begin in January for Blizzard Entertainment's Heroes of the Storm. The upcoming multiplayer online battle arena title is planned as a free-to-play game and will feature heroes from the WarCraft, StarCraft, and Diablo franchises. The company also released a new feature trailer for the game, and revealed plans to give some Alpha testers the chance to invite their friends to play Heroes of the Storm as well.

Weíve very much enjoyed sharing the Technical Alpha with you, and your feedback over the past eight months 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 canít wait to hear more from all of you as we move toward Closed Beta testing in January.

Speaking of Closed Beta, weíre still sending out new waves of testing invites regularly. Make sure to give yourself the best chance at receiving an invitation by opting in to Heroes of the Storm testing on your Battle.net Account Management's Beta Profile Settings page. Additionally, we recently unleashed two exciting new opportunities to join us in the Nexus through our Bring Your Friends to the Brawl Facebook App, and you can learn more about them here.

At a recent Blizzard meeting, "Well, we really have nothing."

Murmurs of agreement around the table.

"Hey! Wait, wait, wait. Why not make an online fighting game with characters from Diablo and Warcraft? Oh wait, even better, add in characters from Starcraft too! All in favour?"

Enthusiastic clapping ensues.

I am amazed at how they managed to dumb the game down, even further than LOL... It is the epitome of casual gaming..
