Blizzard has announced that Firebat Blaze from StarCraft is making the jump to the mash-up game, Heroes of the Storm.
Blaze will take off in the game in January, but past that, details are a little light. What we do know from the description of the trailer is that he is a:
a dual-incinerator cannon wielding Warrior who excels at area-of-effect damage and locking down an area of the battlefield.
You can check out that announcement trailer here. If its anything to fo by, Blaze is going to like to make a lot of puns about fire, so… we have that to look forward to I suppose.
Heroes of the Storm is, while not the most popular MOBA in the world, certainly a pretty good time and easy to pick up and play. That's not true of your League of Legends and Dota 2s. If you've never tried it, you should give it a look. It's free to play, and a new character is always interesting. Here's hoping he fills a need in the game's roster.
