Heroes of the Storm artwork of D.Va Genji and Hanamura

If you've never played Heroes of the Storm, Blizzard's take on the ridiculously popular MOBA genre, now would be the time to do so. Heroes of the Storm 2.0 recently arrived with a new progression system that closely mirrors the one from Overwatch, Genji as a new playable hero, Hanamura as a new battlefield, and even a bunch of skins and goodies you can unlock for both Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm.

You'll find all of the details, and there is a lot of them, by heading over to the official website. But for now, here's the recently posted and rather fancy trailer showcasing not only Hanamura, but also Genji and D.Va! Have a look:

As for the crossover event, by playing 5 Heroes of the Storm matches with friends each week you will be able to get a bunch of Overwatch goodies, but also Heroes of the Storm stuff as well. First and foremost, just by logging in you will be able to purchase 20 heroes for free! Naturally, you won't be able to choose which ones to grab specifically, but the pre-set bundles are all fairly well made and you're definitely not going to find yourself lacking, no matter which gameplay style you end up going for.

And here's what you'll get each week by playing 5 HotS games with a friend in any mode (and yes, this includes Vs AI). It is also worth mentioning that you don't have to play 5 games each week in order to get all of the rewards, you can do all 20 games on the last day of week 4 - just make sure you actually complete all 20 before the promotion goes away! Anyway, here's the list:
