Out with the old, in with the new. Riot’s released a champion spotlight for Poppy 2.0, the long-awaited rework of one of League of Legends’ oldest and most outdated playable characters. She looks really neat! This probably means she’s coming into the main game in the next week or two, too.
Smite’s “Ultimate God Pack,” which gives you every character currently in the game plus any future characters Hi-Rez adds to it, is going on sale tomorrow for $20. I highly recommend it if you have any interest in the game. Except for Dota 2 (which makes every hero free), this is easily the best deal in any MOBA.
There’s a great sale going on in Heroes of the Storm right now that takes 50% off everything in the game—provided you spend real money on it. There’s also a new 360-day stimpack available, which could be a great thing to buy if you know you’re gonna be playing a lot of HOTS. The sale lasts until December 8th.
Today Blizzard released an overview video for Heroes of the Storm’s new map “Towers of Doom,” which, in a unique twist on the standard MOBA formula, doesn’t actually allow players to directly attack the enemy’s core. It sounds a tad complicated, so I recommend watching before you queue up for a match.
Here’s the Heroes of the Storm spotlight for Cho’Gall, the crazy-sounding new character that’s controlled by two people at the same time. Blizzard said they expect him to go live in HOTS sometime this week. My colleague Nathan Grayson and I are sure to start butting heads (literally!) once that happens.
