Since it launched Heroes of the Storm has gone from strength to strength so we're ecstatic to see that 2.0 brings a major overhaul to some of its key systems including hero progression, loot and how players go obtain obtaining cosmetic items. Following the Overwatch blueprint for rewarding players, 2.0 includes:
- Hero voice lines
- Voice Packs
- Chat emojis
- Player portraits
- Banners that unfurl at objectives
- Sprays (similar to Overwatch)
Not only this but hero progression has been totally reworked and level caps have also been removed. Each hero level now rewards a loot crate, with players having the opportunity to re-roll on such crates by spending their gold. Best of all, players will be retrospectively rewarded for all their existing hero levels - including loot crates.
If that wasn't enough (seriously, watch the video!) there's also a new ranged assassin on the way born from Diablo 2: Cassia. Her video is below and expect our guide soon.
