Trademark trawlsters have found Blizzard Entertainment has filed for 'Council of Glades' in New Zealand - that bit next to Australia - the bit on the right. It certainly sounds all Druid-like and World of Warcrafty.

Perhaps we'll find out at this year's BlizzCon which is scheduled November 6-7 at the Anaheim Convention Center, the mecca for Blizzardites. The trademark covers everything 'computer video game' imaginable.

MOBAs are notoriously tricky to get into, which is why Blizzard's doing its best to make its cross-IP effort Heroes of the Storm a little less intimidating to beginners.

King Leoric, perhaps better known amongst Diablo 3 players as the Skeleton King, is the next character to be confirmed for Blizzard's MOBA Heroes of the Storm.

Blizzard's cross-IP MOBA Heroes of the Storm will get a big, new Diablo-flavoured chunk of content later this month, adding a playable version of the lovable Butcher demon, and a brand new themed battleground known as the 'Battlefield of Eternity'.
