Blizzard Entertainment has been teasing a few new heroes coming to Heroes of the Storm over the past few days with a series of teasing tweets. Turns out that the community didn’t have to speculate long because Blizzard accidentally posted the official announcement video publicly on YouTube. The trailer has since been taken down by Blizzard, but not before some fans had already downloaded and reuploaded the announcement video to different services. You can check it out here.
The first of the two new heroes is Chromie, a member of the Bronze dragonflight, who will probably look familiar to World of Warcraft veterans due to her being a bit of an ensemble darkhorse and who helps out players at several points during the leveling process. In Heroes of the Storm, she seems to be a ranged assassin that can summon dragons and slow enemies. The video also shows off her master skin and a special skin called ‘Fel Queen Chromie’, which changes her into something straight out of the Burning legion.
The second new hero is Medivh, the last Guardian of Tirisfal, who warns Thrall at the start of Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos of the impending Burning Legion invasion and who was responsible for opening the Dark Portal with the Orc warlock Gul’dan. Players in World of Warcraft also had to play a game of chess against him as part of the Karahzan dungeon. In Heroes of the Storm, he is able to turn into a raven to cross terrain others have to go around, spawn portals for his allies to use and can chain polymorph enemy heroes and put enemy heroes in stasis.
Among the other announcements is a new skin for Tyrande and a skin for Nova themed after Overwatch hero Widowmaker. Players will also be able to buy the new Elemental Wolf, Epic Elemental Wolf, and Hell Billie mounts when they come out.
