Zarya Joins Heroes of the Storm In Today’s Patch

Today’s patch is adding a bit of new content to Heroes of the Storm, including the newest hero to join the roster: Zarya. The patch will also add various changes to Chen, ETC, Nazeebo, Malfurion, and Li-Ming, and introduces the second new battleground of the Machines of War event: the Warhead Junction.

Zarya is a ranged warrior and will be using skills similar to the ones she has in Overwatch, and will be able to shield herself and her allies but also give enemies serious trouble with either of her heroic abilities, Graviton Surge or Expulsion Zone.

Zarya will also be the star of the next Brawl with the Blues event. You can catch the livestream tomorrow, September 28 at 11am PDT on

The Warhead Junction is the second battleground added in the Machines of War event after the Braxis Holdout. You can watch an overview of its mechanics and details below:

A new map rotation is also in effect as of this week and until October 17 when the Machines of War event concludes. Starting September 27, the pool of Battlegrounds available in all modes, except Custom Games, will be temporarily limited to: Warhead Junction; Braxis Holdout; Towers of Doom; Dragon Shire; Battlefield of Eternity; Cursed Hollow.
