Heroes of the Storm Patch Notes: November 29, 2017

November 22, 2017 • • • • • List of Patches • • • • • December 12, 2017


General Edit

Mac OS

While we would like to support OpenGL4.1 and Metal for Mac users, we’ve found that our current implementation doesn’t meet our goal of providing the best experience possible. As a result, they have been disabled with today’s patch, and Mac users will default to OpenGL2.1. Apologies for any inconveniences this may cause, and thank you for your patience as we explore ways we can better support these experiences in the future.
