Beta sign-ups for Heroes of the Storm go live this evening, Blizzard has announced.

Game director Dustin Browder took to the stage at BlizzCon to re-unveil the multiplayer online battle arena - but didn't announce a release window.

We saw a brief gameplay trailer showing battlegrounds, described as worlds with their own characters and ways to play.

An example: the Haunted Mines, where you collect skulls to create a golem that charges across the battlefield.

Put your name down for the beta on the Heroes of the Storm website.

There's a gameplay trailer below. Underneath that is a typically fancy Blizzard cinematic.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
