Garden of Terror to Sprout in Game Soon

Garden of Terror to Sprout in Game Soon - MMORPG.com

A new developer diary has appeared on the Heroes of the Storm site that discusses a new battlefield that will be coming to the game in the very near future. Called "Garden of Terror", the battlefield is a three lane area that features day and night cycles. The blog gives players insight into what they can expect during each cycle and how it will affect game play.

Trikslyr: Garden of Terror is our brand new, 3-lane battleground featuring a day and night sequence. Can you tell us what changes occur when the night sequence begins?

Meng: When night falls, the night horrors will come out in the garden area of the Battleground and all normal mercenary camps will disappear. The minimap displays the location of all the night horrors with purple indicators, similar to the Haunted Mines display of skulls. This should make locating the Night Terrors easier to pinpoint.

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.
