Here’s a sneak peek of what’s coming to Heroes of the Storm in the near future

2 min read


Blizzard have a lot planned for Heroes of the Storm this year no doubt. Just last week for example, we saw them unveiling two brand new heroes – the Wizard from Diablo III, and the Necromancer from Diablo II. That’s not all that’s coming to the Nexus however…

No, there’s a bunch of other rad stuff on the way too. Granted, it’s nothing quite as cool as two new characters, but who wouldn’t want a shiny new skin or mount? Well, me personally, but that’s only because our currency is currently weaker than Alessandro’s Rocket League game (AMIRITE Gav?), and funnelling enough randelas into my bank account to finance any of the upcoming content would take several decades.

That’s just me though. If you for some reason, happen to have some cash (see: NOT a gaming journalist), then here’s what you can look forward to spending it on in the near future:

If for some reason you can’t watch the above video (maybe something trivial like work is getting in the way), here’s a brief overview of all that’s to come:


  • Crimson Count Arthas
  • Love Doctor Lt. Morales
  • Lunar Jaina
  • Lunar Illidan
  • Master Li-Ming
  • Master Xul
  • Serpent King Xul
  • Star Princess Li-Ming


  • Star Chariot
  • Cloud Serpent
  • Lunar Dragon

Seeing as a lot of the above content is designed to tie in with the Chinese New Year, I’m sure we can expect it to arrive before, or on the day, which is February 8th. As for the two new heroes, Li-Ming and Xul, I don’t know when exactly they’ll be arriving in the Nexus, but I can’t imagine that day being too far away. Blizzard are usually really good with their hero turn around time, so I’m sure we’ll see them soon.

Otherwise, what content above are you excited to get your hands on? If I had the cash, I’d throw money at Love Doctor Lt. Morales in a heartbeat. Nothing heals a wound more than a strong dose of luuuuuuuurrve!
