We do know that we'll see these updates coming in early 2018, so unfortunately, we'll all have to soldier on through the holiday season with only Overwatch Hanzo to brighten our spirits.

Overwatch's Hanzo has been announced as a new Heroes of the Storm character. Blizzard described him as a scout/assassin type character who is mostly trying to prey off weakened foes while scouting ahead for the rest of the team. First, let's look at our newest heroes: Hanzo, and Alexstrasza. This legendary dragon queen has been a fixture of the Warcraft mythos for quite some time.

Hanzo is a ranged assassin, as you might have guessed from him being a bowman.


The additions of Hanzo and Alexstrasza were leaked prior to BlizzCon 2017 thanks to Blizzard's Chinese Heroes of the Storm website spotted by members of gaming forum ResetEra.

More information on Heroes of the Storm will take place during a panel this evening. Players will also get to use voice chat during matches and play with a new camera to get a better view of the battlefield. As it stands, Blizzard's moba trails behind the likes of League of legends and DOTA 2. Exactly how he's going to be implemented hasn't yet been revealed, but with previous Overwatch characters being introduced to Heroes of the Storm, we can make some good guesses.
