Blizzard Teases New Heroes of the Storm Characters and Skins

We’ve known for a while that StarCraft’s Medic and Artanis were on their way to the nexus, but with the skin reveal they’re one step closer to release. Usually once the Heroes of the Storm skin trailer is made available the heroes aren’t too far behind.

In the latest preview video we received a quick glance of the following:

  • Lt. Morales
    • Master Lt. Morales
    • Apothecary Morales
  • Artanis
    • Master Artanis
    • Purifier Artanis
  • Marshal Raynor and Themed Abilities
  • Buccaneer Falstad and Themed Abilities
  • Marshal’s Outrider Mount
  • Void Speeder Mount
  • Nexus Battle Beast Mount
  • Headless Horseman’s Charger Mount
  • Vulture Mount

It’s likely that the next hero to come to the Nexus will be Lt. Morales, the medic, due to the showing at Gamescom 2015 and relatively little being known about Artanis. The medic will have a single-target heal, shield and a Medivac Heroic ability that can transport an entire team across the battlefield.

With the overarching StarCraft theme of this preview, it could be a setup for a StarCraft specific launch similar to the Eternal Conflict for Diablo. So far there are at least 2 new StarCraft heroes and 3 themed mounts, and fans have been really looking forward to a series of StarCraft maps.

Let us know what you would like to see for the future of Heroes of the Storm and if you think the game needs a StarCraft themed battlefield.
