Today marks the beginning of the Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) East 2014 in Boston, MA.
This year the convention turns 10, and no expenses were spared.
As the first major open gaming convention of the year, there are a lot of announcements that developers and publishers will be trying to make.
As thousands make their way to the convention center today, the social media hype remains intense, with rumors of announcements flying everywhere!
Naturally there is also a little bit of friendly competition and each companies wants to leave this glamorous weekend with the goal of having produced the best or most controversial announcement that will stick in peoples mind for months (or at least until E3 in June).
One company that is on everyone's radar this weekend is Blizzard.
The gaming mega-house has recently hit the gold mine with highly successful games such as "Hearthstone" and "Diablo III: Reaper of Souls". Their upcoming expansion to the highly thriving World of Warcraft series "Warlords of Draenor" is also sure not to disappoint and highly anticipated. However, the game that seems to be generating the most hype lately is their newest announced project, Heroes of the Storm.
"Heroes of the Storm" is Blizzard's new take on the Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA) genre.
Bringing back popular characters from all their games (regardless of franchise) and giving the users a high definition, yet cartoony Warcraft 3 type experience, Blizzard has truly captivated their audience and have seemingly produced a masterpiece.
Today, much to the public's joy, Blizzard didn't waste any time and instantly made an announcement regarding "Heroes of the Storm".
There will be 4 new playable heroes that players will be able to enjoy.
These heroes, as seen in the picture released with this article are:
