It may have been long in coming, but Heroes of the Storm is finally on Asia’s shores—and we cannot be more excited. Asiasoft and its subsidiaries will be bringing Heroes of the Storm to four Southeast Asian countries:Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines, though it has yet to announce a specific launch date.
Asiasoft will be handling operations and marketing for Heroes of the Storm in Thailand and Singapore, while subsidiaries CiB Net Station Sdn. Bhd. and Level Up! Inc. will be responsible for Malaysia and Philippines respectively. The game has also recently made its way to China, where it will be published by Netease.
Although often dubbed as a MOBA game, Heroes of the Storm’s official genre is a “brawler”. The game has received mixed reactions from MOBA fans because of basic MOBA ideas and mechanics such as items, gold, and in-game roles being removed from its gameplay.
As expected of a game once called Blizzard All-Stars, Heroes of the Storm brings together a multitude of popular Blizzard characters such as Kerrigan, Tassadar, Diablo, Tyrael, Tyrande, and Illidan, to name a few. Heroes of the Storm is currently in alpha and is still being developed both for PC and Mac platforms.
