Heroes of the Storm trailer shows off the power of Kerrigan in action

The latest trailer for Blizzard's upcoming multiplayer online battle arena game Heroes of the Storm shows off what playable character Kerrigan, of the StarCraft franchise, looks like in action. The battle arena game features a collective of well-known characters from Blizzard's roster of earlier releases, which players can select to fight against other users. Characters include Diablo of Diablo fame, Stitches and Uther of World of Warcraft and Raynor and Tychus of StarCraft 2, among others. Last month, Blizzard announced that it would be inviting select Battle.net users into the early technical alpha for the game, which was revealed last fall to be the rebranding of in-development MOBA Blizzard All-Stars. Heroes of the Storm will launch for Mac and Windows PC at an undetermined date.

Two new WoW: Warlords of Draenor trailers examine remade zones

A pair of videos released by Blizzard show off some of the (somewhat) new scenery in Warlords of Draenor, the newest expansion pack to World of Warcraft. The first video, seen above, shows a number of zones from Terokkar Forest to Shadowmoon Valley in their current and original form when introduced in the first expansion, The Burning Crusade. The trailer then shows how the same locales used to look before the world of Draenor was shattered and turned into the hellish Outland that demons came to call home.
