Heroes of the Storm™

PAX Prime Info?

Posts: 208
Normally, I just check in with this forum or the News section of this site ... but today there's nothing at all. I kinda thought that, with PAX Prime going on, this would be a heavy news day, and I've been disappointed.

Was anything new or interesting discussed in this morning's panel? Is any additional gameplay footage going around? Is there ... anything at all?

I'm not constantly dying for news, but today was kinda built up and I'm getting nothing. I mean, I wish I could be there at PAX, but I have a family, a job, and a Masters Program to attend. I know I won't get everything - I just hoped to get SOMETHING today.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

... they're at PAX, how are they supposed to be posting news WHILE being at PAX?

There may be some news out of aggriate sites, but Blizzard typically won't do a writeup for an event until after the event is over

Not true, dude. They often have a writeup ready to go before the event and release it during the day, and, anyway, I'm less curious about Blizzard's take on PAX and more interested in fan sites.

It's just that none of the ones I follow have anything yet. I wondered if anyone knew of another one. Nice to know Fujin doesn't, but does anyone else?

Me don't know either, sorry.

In all seriousness I expect the news within the next 8 hours.

Not for Heroes of the Storm. The last two major events haven't had one until after the event, likely due to there not being any PR staff attached to the program.

Still nothing. That's weird, right?

With all the potential interviews and people playing these new heroes, I've heard nothing at all about them. I'm less annoyed or excited now .... Mostly, I'm just confused. This game has been covered to death when the game hasn't changed in weeks, yet now, with big changes in the wings, nothing.

Strange.

Have you check the "News" tab?

It has some info about Pax, but if you're looking for more there "probably" wont be any more news until the end of Pax.

Yeah, I saw it. It's kinda what made me want to rant again. ;)

I was so excited to click it ... and so disappointed to read it.

Oh well, I'll continue to wait.

it's probably more like "here's 3 new Heroes" we have new battleground and other thing which you probably know anyway.

They're showing the same stuff at PAX as they did at Gamescom as far as I know. I guess there may be different questions asked to the devs, but you'll need to wait for the sites that are asking the questions to post their interview text.

Otherwise, check all the information from Gamescom from the sites around.

I suspect shortly after PAX we'll see updates to the alpha *fingers crossed*

haven't heard of a new battleground or anything so any sort of reveal on that would be cool.

If you want some information regarding all the 3 new heroes, you can check out the reddit forums. Just google "reddit heroes of the storm".

I thought you were referring to something they might reveal at PAX.

Would be a bit odd if they revealed an already revealed and released battleground at PAX.

They'll have a full recap at the end of PAX.

Pssshaw! I'm way ahead of you! ;)

I've been making posts throughout PAX Prime on Facebook and Twitter, and I've also posted a new blog which covers what we've been up to at this year's PAX Prime! I'm planning on continuing to update it throughout the convention as well!

If you have any particular questions regarding what we're up to at PAX, just let me know, and I'll check back and I'll do my best answer them in this thread.

This may be a bit audacious, but I'm gonna ask anyway.

How about a gameplay video with Azmodan as the main player so we can watch his abilities, Vaeflare? Anub'arak is good too ... but he seems less interesting than Azmodan (I know, it kills me to say it too).

Pretty unlikely, I'd say, but I've seen community managers pull off some amazing things on these forums. Do what you can. :)

While you won't see a new gameplay video direct from the show floor here at PAX Prime (our video team handles those sorts of things back home in Irvine HQ), this video we recently released shows these three exciting new Heroes in action.

That said, we're definitely working on videos for each of these characters for when they're released, and additionally, we're working towards releasing short ability videos for each Hero, like the ones you see here on the lower part of Rehgar's Hero Page.

I helped out with a recent playmatch which featured these characters. I'll see if I can track down the VoD of that match if one's available. :)
