Heroes Of The Storm Straps On A Rocket For The Lunar Year

Overwatch isn’t the only Blizzard game to celebrate the Lunar YearHeroes of the Storm is also having their Lunar Festival event from 6th till 5th March! And yes, there will be cool Lunar-inspired new skins for Sylvanas, Genji and many more! We’ve got a new series of quests and also donning the game’s best Lunar New Year outfits.

The most interesting addition to this year’s Lunar Festival is the free-for-all Lunar Rocket Racing brawl. For the most part, this is just what it sounds like, with the heroes and villains of the Nexus strapping themselves to rocket mounts and racing to the finish line. The idea is to complete seven laps, with the Heroes automatically moving towards wherever the mouse cursor is placed. Players can pick up different abilities by grabbing Envelopes, which will allow them to fire away at their opponents and potentially knock them off their mounts.

Think Mario Kart meets Heroes of the Storm.

Regardless of what game type the player engages in during the Lunar Festival, they can pick up the Lunar Skyrocket Spray after playing two games. Playing five or more games earns the Lunar Warcrest, playing eight or more games gets the Cute Lunar Guardian Portrait, and playing more than 10 games will unlock the Lunar Skyrocket Mount.
