|Release Date||December 1, 2017|
- Things are looking even worse, soldier. You’re stranded on Braxis and the UED is still overrun. The Omegaswarm has surrounded you on all sides, and your only shot at survival is to press through the onslaught, make it to the shuttle, and get off this planet. Will you fall victim to the heroic-difficulty swarm, or can you work together and Escape from Braxis?
Escape From Braxis (Heroic) is a Brawl in Heroes of the Storm. It's a modified version of Braxis Holdout and a more difficult version of Escape From Braxis — the first and only fully PvE Brawl in the game. As its normal difficulty version, this Brawl requires games to be won in order to earn the reward, and it's the first Brawl which requires only one game to be completed.
At the beginning of the Brawl, your team will have the following roster of Heroes to choose from:
- Warrior: Artanis, Arthas, Blaze, Johanna, Muradin, Sonya, Tyrael, Varian, Yrel, Zarya
