Blizzard has just announced that local Heroes of the Storm Australian servers have been deployed in Australia with immediate effect.
So if you're one of the lucky people with early access to this game as part of its 'Technical Alpha', now might be as good a time as any to give it a bash.
Heroes of the Storm is a multiplayer online battle arena game that draws on characters from almost every Blizzard universe in existence. Blizzard themselves are calling it a 'Hero Brawler'. There's no official release date in sight, but the Alpha is ongoing.
Also worthy of note: Blizzard is not sending out Alpha keys at this time and, in a press release sent out this morning, warned players to be wary of phishing scams in emails pretending to be Alpha keys. Anyone being added to the Alpha will be done so directly through Battle.Net accounts, so check there, not your inbox. Watch out people, don't let your enthusiasm for this game get the better of you.
