Blizzard has unveiled two new blog posts detailing upcoming content for their currently alpha MOBA, Heroes of the Storm. These include a new battleground and several new "Master" skins for players to obtain.

Titled Garden of Terror, the new 3-lane battleground will feature a unique day and night cycle aiming to shuffle up just how myself and others typically play the MOBA. "When night falls, the night horrors will come out in the garden area of the Battleground and all normal mercenary camps will disappear," describes the blog post.
"Garden of Terror provides us with the opportunity to feature our dynamic lighting. During the night, we turn down the brightness of your hero’s vision, so the map becomes much darker. We recommend players to stay alert and keep your allies close, night is the perfect time for enemies to strike and take advantage of your reduced visibility.

As a side note, the night sequence will not end until all the night horrors are killed. Since the nature of the map changes and the day/night cycle is controlled by the players, it becomes part of the strategy whether to try and keep the map on the night cycle or try and shift it back to daytime."
Players looking to pretty up their characters will be happy to hear that Blizzard will also be introducing new Master skins that will evolve their players base skin. Examples given were Arthas, Falstad, Li Li, and Stitches from the Warcraft side of things. Though details on how these new skins will be obtained are still forthcoming, the showcased examples offer a glimpse at how each hero's base skin might evolve.

Heroes of the Storm is currently available as an invite-only technical alpha, though will launch later this year as a free-to-play title similar to Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. Need a helping hand for Heroes of the Storm? Well we've got you covered with Joaby's most recent video offering a "How to" guide on all things Storm-related so check it out!
