Blizzard releases documentary on e-sports, Heroes of the Dorm tournament
Last year Blizzard hosted a nationwide Heroes of the Storm collegiate tournament focusing on the nation’s top players from 64 universities. The tournament, called Heroes of the Dorm, had players competing for their tuition to be paid in full. The final four, or “Heroic Four,” was broadcast on ESPN2 earlier this year.
A new documentary, A New Hero: The Rise of College Esports, highlights intense moments from the tournament along with interviews with the players, and e-sports enthusiasts that include the likes of former Los Angeles Laker Rick Fox, artist deadmau5, and San Francisco Giants’ Hunter Pence. The film is in part a display of the rapid growth of e-sports as a whole as well as a behind the scenes look at the Heroes of the Dorm tournament. Check it out above.
