BlizzCon 2017: Hanzo, Alexstrasza, and more coming to Heroes of the Storm

During the BlizzCon Opening Ceremony, Heroes of the Storm revealed Hanzo of Overwatch and Alexstrasza of World of Warcraft will be the next additions to its roster. Hanzo will be a nimble ranged assassin and scout, while Alexstraza will be, you know, a dragon via her Dragon Queen trait. (Sorry to all of you who were hoping for Deathwing, but that doesn’t look like it’s happening. Yet.)

However, more than new heroes are coming to Heroes of the Storm. The game’s 2018 update will feature performance-based matchmaking, voice chat, laning improvements, a stealth rework (though no word on whether it’s more than the changes that have already been made), and evolved battleground mechanics.

We’re short on details so far, but we’ll hear more this evening at the Heroes of the Storm: What’s Next panel that starts at 5 p.m. Pacific. We’ll be covering it live, so watch this space for more info soon.
