Early Impressions of Hanzo and Alexstrasza's Heroes Of The Storm Debut

More information on Heroes of the Storm will take place during a panel this evening.

During the BlizzCon 2017 opening ceremony, Blizzard announced several new updates coming to their Heroes of the Storm multiplayer online battle arena game.

Hanzo didn't feel hard to pick up and understand, so the jokes about Hanzo mains will continue for Heroes fans. It's likely that he'll also have an ability that reflects his range as a bowman, allowing him to fire an arrow a huge distance in a line.

Generally, their abilities match those from Overwatch, where Hanzo has two basic abilities. A new cinematic and in-game trailer have been released to show these new characters in action. His Dragonstrike Heroic ability summons the same ghostly Spirit Dragons that appear as his Overwatch Ultimate.

Stealth rework - making stealthed heroes easier to spot plus buffs for Samuro, Nova, Valeera and Zeratul.

Alexstrasza from World of Warcraft feels more exciting and challenging. In Heroes of the Storm, she will serve as a ranged support character who can also transform into a dragon when she needs to deal some damage.

Overwatch fans will no doubt know archer Hanzo as the character that the guy on your team most certainly can't play despite his protests to the contrary and the character on the other team capable of one-shotting you around a corner and in the dark. In a pinch, she can turn into the fearsome Red Dragon Queen. Too bad. Her dragon transformation still feels enough like a powerful pay-off to make up, at least in part, for her small stature.
