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.
