A new free rotation lands in Heroes, but the excitement is all on the PTR

Sure, we have another free hero rotation arriving in the Nexus this week — just like every other week — but the real fun is on the PTR. Junkrat, a Hallow’s End event, and plenty of nerfs went live on the test realm yesterday, which means we’re likely to see them all live next week.

As ever, the Heroes team has done a solid job of making the Heroes of the Storm iteration of a character match the original gameplay, so it’s no surprise that Junkrat is all about causing chaos across the battlefield.

In short: Junkrat looks like a lot of fun and you can look forward to meeting him in person next week. In the meanwhile, let’s check out this week’s Heroes rotations.
