WWII FPS games haven't been the WWII FPS games in years. It's all about modern combat these days.

Here a DOTA, there a DOTA, everywhere a DOTA DOTA.

But hey, its got that "Super Smash Brothers" thing going for with with multiple universes characters fighting eachother, so maybe this'll have an edge over the others.

Also, this is probably the closest we'll get to a new Warcraft RTS style game.

I doubt it. They've answered questions about Warcraft IV by saying it can't begin until they're done making Starcraft II.

You misunderstand me Nami, that's exactly my point, a DOTA with Warcraft character is as close as we'll get for a long time because a real Warcraft 4 wont happen for a great number of years.

Well, you didn't say "for a long time", so I was just left to assume "ever".

I guess I should mention that this game is no longer called Blizzard DOTA, but Blizzard All-Stars. Valve and Blizzard came to an agreement on that lawsuit a couple months back and Valve gets to keep calling their game Dota 2, while Blizzard is calling theirs Blizzard All-Stars and will have no problem referencing DotA in their Starcraft II mod.

This game's title is now Heroes of the Storm. In typical Blizzard fashion, they slaved away over a high quality CGI trailer for it.

The Blizzard employee I spoke with at BlizzCon said beta sign-ups were starting that very weekend. And sure enough, you can sign up for beta on your Battle.net account right now.

Also, this is no longer a Starcraft II-dependent thing. It is a standalone game and is likely to be FTP. Rygarius didn't even know what I was talking about when I asked if it was going to be a standalone game now, as if it had always been. That pretty much answered that question for me.

I GOT INTO THE ALPHA.

Literally right after I reinstalled League of Legends, too. It's like they knew.
