The world of Diablo has crash landed into Blizzard’s epic MOBA Heroes of the Storm with brand new content for the already wildly popular title. ‘The Eternal Conflict’ is an extended multi-week event that brings epic new Heroes, Battlegrounds, and more to Blizzard Entertainment’s free-to-play team brawler.

The Archangel Tyrael versus The Butcher

The Butcher and other legendary characters from Diablo III enter the Nexus to continue the war over the High Heavens and the Burning Hells

Since the Nexus portal opened on June 3, millions of players around the world have stormed the battlegrounds as powerful heroes of light, menacing agents of darkness, egg-laying baby amphibians, and stage-diving tauren. Now, Heroes of the Storm invites players to take sides in a war that has been waged between demons and angels since time immemorial—the Eternal Conflict!

The Eternal Conflict is an epic, multiweek in-game event that expands Heroes of the Storm into a whole new realm. In addition to bolstering the game’s playable roster of Heroes with three new characters from the Diablo universe, the war between immortals heralds a variety of Diablo-themed character skins and mounts and opens the gates to two thrilling new Battlegrounds, starting with the Battlefield of Eternity. During the event, players should also be on the lookout for those infamous battlefield scavengers, the Treasure Goblins. Heroes who manage to track down these thieving creatures and eliminate them before a match will receive an in-game gold reward for their efforts.

“We’re excited to bring the world of Diablo deeper into the Nexus and introduce our first Battleground based on an existing universe,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “Players are in for a hellishly good time with the Butcher and other Heroes on the Battlefield of Eternity, and we can’t wait to add more Diablo-themed content to Heroes of the Storm as the Eternal Conflict wages on.”

Conquer the Battlefield of Eternity

Taking place at the shifting borderland between the High Heavens and the Burning Hells, the Battlefield of Eternity is the first Heroes of the Storm Battleground located within one of Blizzard’s established universes. As agents of supreme forces fighting for the fate of all creation, heroes will need to defend their core and attack the enemy while supporting their mighty Immortal, a massive angel—or demon—duking it out against their counterpart in the centre of the map. Available in-game starting today, this

Battleground features unique themed mercenaries such as Fallen shaman and Khazra impalers with Battleground-specific powers.

The Butcher, Skeleton King Leoric and Crusader Johanna

The forces of light and darkness will stop at nothing to emerge victorious, so they’re sending their most capable heroes into the Nexus. Johanna, the heavily armored Crusader, has established herself as one of the Nexus’s most stalwart Warriors, but today she faces a familiar foe—a bloodthirsty demon known as The Butcher. Despite his formidable bulk, the Butcher is a damage-dealing melee Assassin who gains strength by gathering “fresh meat” from the remains of his fallen enemies. The Butcher’s Brand ability debuffs enemies so that he gains life with each attack, and he can also bring Lambs to the Slaughter, chaining his hapless victims to a post for the four longest seconds of their puny lives.

Leoric, the Mad King of Khanduras—best known to Diablo players as the Skeleton King—will be the next Warrior to enter the Nexus in the weeks ahead. Notoriously bad at staying dead, whenever Leoric is put down he will rise as a wraith to continue haunting his enemies. In this ghostly form, his attacks slow his enemies and accelerate his return to the mortal realm—until he eventually reforms at the location of his wraith.

Leoric will eventually have to face the next nephalem to heed the Nexus’s call—the Monk. The Monk is a mobile, versatile melee Support hero who can heal allies and choose between two hero-defining Traits to fulfill the needs of his team. Stay tuned to www.heroesofthestorm.com for more details on the Monk and other aspects of the Eternal Conflict in the weeks ahead.
