Blizzard Entertainment's new multi-player online battle arena video game showed-off new contents during the BlizzCon 2014. The American game developer and publisher unveiled four new heroes for "Heroes of the Storm" Beta that is slated for release next year.

Alongside other Blizzard franchises, "Heroes of the Storm" Beta's new heroes have been introduced to the game buffs during the semi-annual game convention. The four new heroes are Jaina Proudmoore, The Lost Vikings, Thrall, and Sylvanas.

Proudmoore, well recognized by many gamers for her developments in the "Warcraft 3" campaign, is the "ice-casting mage" and wizard ruler of Dalaran. The Lost Viking, on the other hand, is an old character from the game company's 1992 game.

Thrall, who appeared in numerous "Warcraft" games, is the former Orcish Horde chieftain while Sylvanas is the "Quel' Danas ranger-general and high elf." Among the four new heroes, Sylvanas is the only character that is now playable during the BlizzCon hands-on for "Heroes of the Storm."

Game Informer was able to try the upcoming MOBA game during the game conference. The game review said, "Heroes of the Storm is really shaping up as a MOBA choice, with fast gameplay and accessibility that's uncommon for the genre."

During the hands-on experience with the "Heroes of the Storm's" new Sky Temple map, Jaina and The Lost Viking have been able to unleash their own powers. Players who are fond of damaging successive and slow blows should use the wizard mage. The Lost Vikings is also a character to try in Blizzard's new MOBA video game.

Aside from the Sky Temple map with three different obelisks, Blizzard has also announced a new map that will be based on Heaven vs Hell Diablo for the "Heroes of the Storm" Beta. The American game developer also hinted about new features which include ranked play and new skins.

Players need not to wait for a long time as "Heroes of the Storm" Beta will be released on Jan. 13, 2015.
