Volcanic Ridge is a 4v4 map introduced with the release of the Heart of the Swarm expansion.

Official Map Description[edit]

Work with your teammates to secure your side of the map. Afterwards you can move forward into the center and break the Rock Towers near the Xel'Naga Towers as you claim them.

Notable Features[edit]

  • Teammates are separated into two shared bases at each corner of the map.
  • The map features 4 easily defended natural expansions, as well as a gold base blocked off by rocks that is very easy to take.
  • There are two semi-island gold bases in the center of the map, which also grant control of the central watchtowers. they can be made islands by knocking over the collapsible rocks at their ramps.
  • Unlike many WoL 4v4 maps, It is possible for every player to take a 3rd base before crossing the center of the map.
