- Launch date: September 13, 2016
Worlds collide as the Koprulu sector enters the Nexus, setting the stage for battles that will shake both realms to their core. Two new battlegrounds filled with signature StarCraft carnage await: time to let the nukes fly and unleash the fury of the Swarm on your enemies. Dominate the battlefield as Alarak, the Tal'darim Highlord, a brand-new arrival to the Nexus hailing from the sci-fi epic Legacy of the Void. Don new, themed Hero skins and fight side by side with familiar characters seen through the lens of StarCraft. The terrans, protoss, and zerg are no strangers to conflict, but the coming war across the Nexus will prove to be more intense than anything they have ever known.
The collision of the Nexus and the Koprulu Sector during our Machines of War event will bring two new StarCraft-themed Battlegrounds to Heroes of the Storm: Braxis Holdout and Warhead Junction. Capture the beacons on Braxis Holdout to spawn an army of ravenous zerg before your opponents and force them into a battle on several fronts, or head to Warhead Junction, where anyone can collect a warhead and call down a devastating tactical strike on the target of their choosing.
Xel'Naga artifacts have begun to appear all across the Nexus, and SCVs are being deployed to collect them. Terminate the interlopers with extreme prejudice and collect artifact pieces!
To participate, log into the game and play. You'll get a daily quest to collect artifacts. At the start of a match, artifact pieces and SCVs may appear. Collect pieces to restore the artifact, but watch out for SCVs trying to interfere!
