Volskaya battleground.jpg

Volskaya Foundry is the latest battleground for Heroes of the Storm. Many will be familiar with this frozen mech factory as it's the backdrop to the Volskaya Industries map from Overwatch.

The Foundry is a snowy, sprawling three-lane control battleground featuring three Overwatch-style capture points, moving conveyor belts, and a giant two-seater mech, the Triglav Protector.

Control points


Control points activate occasionally. Stand within them to capture them. Fully capturing a point grants control of a giant mech.

  • Throughout the match a Control Point will activate at one of three locations, beginning in a neutral capture state.
  • Once a player stands on the control point without any enemies, they gain control progress for their team at a steady rate.
  • If an enemy enters the point, the point becomes contested and will not gain or lose control progress. The objective UI will display "Contested".
  • When a team's control progress hits 100, they gain control of the point.
  • As long as a team has control of the point, they gain victory progress at a steady rate.
    • Victory progress does not decay for any reason.
  • Overtime: When a point is at 99% victory progress about to tick over to 100%, it will stay at 99% and enter the overtime state if there are any enemy heroes on the point or the point just flipped from the enemy's control.
  • When a team's victory progress hits 100%, they win the event. The control point deactivates and a two-person Triglav Protector spawns on the point for the winning team after a short delay.
  • Volskaya Foundry has a unique “Point Guard” award for time spend standing on the Control Point.

Triglav Protector


Players can team up with a friend as the pilot and gunner of a massive omnic-crushing mechanized force of destruction, the Triglav Protector. Much like Cho'gall, the pilot handles positioning and movement for the Protector while the gunner lays waste to the enemy team.

The Protector's abilities deal incredible damage to structures and Heroes alike.

Conveyor belts

These moving walkways are a new battleground mechanic that create interesting tactical consideration and opportunities for big plays. Each capture point is connected to a unique conveyor layout--they can be used to boost mobility around the battleground, to force enemies out of position, and more.
