Heroes of the Storm Adds Its Own Double Dragons

Heroes of the Storm Adds Its Own Double Dragons

Overwatch's Hanzo and World of Warcraft's Alexstrasza, joins the Nexus.

Heroes of the Storm has been on a bit of run in terms of character releases over the past year. Now Blizzard's shot at the MOBA crown is preparing for its 2018 updates and it's bringing two new characters along for the ride. Hanzo from Overwatch and Alexstrasza of the Red Dragonflight will be joining the roster.

Alexstrasza is a ranged support who heals allies with her own lifebar. In a pinch, she can turn into the fearsome Red Dragon Queen. Hanzo is a ranged assassin, using his bow and arrows to deal heavy damage from afar. His Ultimate ability is Dragon's Arrow, a huge attack that does more damage the farther it goes.

Both heroes will be available in "the coming weeks".
