A month after its announcement, the Heroes of the Storm 2.0 huge update is now live, introducing a variety of changes which spice up the experience considerably.

The biggest change introduced by the Heroes of the Storm 2.0 update is the Loot Chests system, which works almost like the one featured in Overwatch, allowing players to obtain a chest containing random cosmetic items every time a character levels up. With almost all of the game's cosmetic items now being out from behind a paywall, players will finally be able to obtain items without spending money.
