Update: The Technical Alpha's latest patch notes have been included and can be found here.

Original story: Heroes of the Storm has seen an ample number of Warcraft representation in recent weeks. Now it's time to get some more StarCraft characters into the Blizzard MOBA. More specifically, the Technical Alpha's next update will throw in more Zerg in the form of StarCraft 2's Zagara.

Zagara takes on a Specialist role, using her Zerg abilities to infest lanes with minions. In particular, the 'Baneling Barrage' ability will launch exploding Banelings at foes, while 'Hunter Killer' will target a foe with a Hunter Killer Hydralisk and 'Infested Drop' will fill a surrounding area with Roachlings.

Zagara's Hero Abilities include the 'Nydus Network,' which allows her to place Nydus Worms around the map and use them for fast travel. The 'Devouring Maw' Hero Ability will call a giant Maw to take out any surrounding foes in short order.

For more on Zagara, including some keen alternate skins, check out her Heroes of the Storm blog entry. Also, check out the trailer below.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      They should add a wisp. You have to time your detonate for the perfect moment and then you watch your teammates attack and kill things.

      why does every "female alien" thing have to have pseudo-breasts? why not just make it completely alien? in Zagara's case just lose the pseudo breasts and make it more armor / carapace-y. we get she's female because she's more slender and has a female voice, the breasts just make it less convincing and i cant take it seriously.

      i get that it's cartoony, but i dont see the art-style as breaking the "seriousness" of it. if that makes sense.
