Earlier this week Blizzard launched the Battle of Alterac event for their critically acclaimed MOBA Heroes of the Storm.
The event brings new battleground, the Alterac Pass. To win on this new battleground, players will have to capture enemy prison camps to summon their cavalry. The cavalry charges down each lane when summoned granting increased damage and movement speed to nearby allied Heroes. Each team’s Core is a General who fights back when attacked. The general starts off with a lot of armor, which can be reduced by destroying keeps.
Echoes of Alterac also brings a new hero, Yrel. You can see her spotlight below
During the event, players will get 50% bonus experience for grouping up with friends. The event ends on July 9th.
You can find out more about the event on the game’s official site.
