Every so often, Heroes of the Storm features special in-game events. Each limited-duration event has a specific theme, and offers rewards and special purchases in keeping with that theme.

Some events are unique, timed to celebrate the addition of a batch of new heroes, battlegrounds, skins and mounts; while others are seasonal, and are repeated each year, generally tying into seasonal events from one of the game's integrated universes, such as Warcraft.

Seasonal events[edit | edit source]

Seasonal events occur each year, and introduce skins, mounts, sprays and portraits that are exclusive to the period that the event happens and are only available in the event Loot Chests. Some feature bonus XP and special portraits.
