Co-op PvE Starcraft – looks like another new way to draw people into the game and also give the game extra longevity outside of Standard Multiplayer. Nice feature we think!

New BG : Infernal Shrines

“Infernal Shrines is a three-lane Diablo-themed Battleground featuring three shrines that will periodically gather power. Teams can unleash this power by activating a shrine, defeating its guardians, and summoning a devastating Punisher to fight for them. These powerful bosses will spawn with one of three deadly affixes—Arcane, Frozen, or Mortar— and will hunt down nearby enemy Heroes as well as pushing the lane closest to their shrine.”

They added the lovely arcane spell that everyone loves in Diablo (if you got the item that makes you immune)
