Blizzard has announced that Imperius from Diablo will be the next character joining the Heroes of the Storm roster.
“Leader of the Angiris Council and Aspect of Valor, Imperius has valiantly led the armies of the High Heavens to innumerous victories over the demons of the Burning Hells,” the developer explains. “While his methods are exact and severe, there is no greater defender of righteousness in the entirety of creation.”
Imperius has access to Celestial Charge, which sees him lunge towards a targeted direction and stab; Solarian’s Flare, which releases a fiery wave the damages and slows; and Molten Armor, which shrouds Imperius in flames for three seconds.
This latest character is now available to test on the PTR alongside a number of character balance adjustments and bug fixes. Read the full patch notes here.
In other news, back in December, Blizzard revealed that it has moved a number of Heroes of the Storm developers to other projects, but promised to continue supporting the game with new heroes and events.
