Blizzard’s upcoming MOBA Heroes of the Storm looks promising as ever, and Blizzard recently revealed four new heroes they’re adding to the current lineup during a panel at PAX East.
If you’re not familiar with Heroes of the Storm, it’s essentially a MOBA in which the heroes are all prominent characters in the respective lores of different Blizzard games. If you’ve ever wanted to watch Illidan go toe-to-toe with Diablo, it’s finally going to be possible.
The four heroes announced at the panel included:
- LiLi Stormstout (Support) – Pandarian from World of Warcraft
- Brightwing (Support) – Faerie dragon from Warcraft
- Zagara (High-mobility, global map presence) – Zerg second-in-command, Starcraft
- Murky (Weak, but persistent) – Murloc from World of Warcraft
In addition to the officially announced heroes, Blizzard confirmed that Chen Stormstout, Sylvanas Windrunner, and Kael’thas Sunstrider are currently in-development. There is still no release date in sight for Heroes of the Storm, but if you’re interested in signing up for the alpha, you can do so here.
