Blizzard Entertainment has revealed the return of The Lost Vikings, who make their debut in Heroes of the Storm. Unlike other heroes, The Lost Vikings start without any basic abilities and have three units which players control.
Each Viking can move, attack, and be killed individually. Respawn timers are also unique to each Viking. The Vikings are required to be near each other when the player wants to use their ultimate ability, Longboat Raid. Grouping the Viking’s together also allows them to break the chests on the Blackheart’s Bay map very quickly.
Each Viking has unique traits. Erik the Swift moves the fastest of the trio and possesses longer attack range. Olaf the Stout has the most health of the group, has faster regeneration, and can charge to slow enemies. Baleog the Fierce deals splash damage to enemy units behind those of his target. Blizzard also revealed alternative skins for the Vikings, including Pajama Party and Master skins.
The Lost Vikings game was first released in 1992 as a puzzle action game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The game was added to Battle.net as a free download in 2014.
The Lost Vikings were first confirmed for Heroes of the Storm by Blizzard during Blizzcon last year. The game entered closed beta last month, which players can gain immediate access to if they purchase the Founder’s Pack. For more on Heroes of the storm, check out GameSpot’s previous coverage.
