⚔️ What can I do in Heroes of the Storm?

Like all MOBA games, you gain control of a singular character, band up together with other players, and the end-goal is to destroy the opposing team’s main building.

There are several game modes to choose from, but most of them maintain the same basic principles, the only great difference being the shapes of the maps or the team sizes.

🛡️ How do I get Heroes of the Storm?

Like all Blizzard Entertainment games, the game is available exclusively via the Battle.net client. With it, you can download it, update it, manage it, relocate it, and ultimately uninstall it.

Additionally, you must know that launching Heroes of the Storm will automatically launch Battle.net as well. On the flip-side, Battle.net issues, such as the inability to connect to it, can lead to you not being able to play any Blizzard title, including Heroes of the Storm.
