While Labor Day passes, Blizzard is busy preparing the next big Heroes of the Storm update. In fact, it's set to drop tomorrow and introduce two new Heroes to the growing roster.

The Heroes of the Storm Twitter account has informed users that mighty hunter Rexxar will take time away from hunting wild game in World of Warcraft and aiming for your face in Hearthstone to join the Heroes of the Storm roster. He won't be alone, as he'll have his trusty bear companion, Misha, along for the ride. In fact, Misha is Rexxar's main trait, as he'll send her straight into battle when directed or follow when ordered. Misha will even have her own health bar.

Rexxar's moves comprise of the following:

  • (Q) Spirit Swoop: Rexxar lobs a tomahawk straight at his foes. If hit, enemies will be slowed for a few seconds.
  • (W) Misha, Charge!: Misha strikes at any nearby enemies, momentarily stunning anyone she hits.
  • (E) Mend Pet: Heals a significant portion of Misha's health.
  • (R1) Bestial Wrath: Misha receives a massive attack buff.
  • (R2) Unleash the Boars: Very similar to that OTHER spell, Unleash the Boars releases a single boar for each enemy in Rexxar's sights. The boars will track their prey and deal damage. On top of that, the enemy will be slowed and will be revealed on the mini-map for all of Rexxar's allies to find.

The next Heroes of the Storm update will also introduce new quality of life improvements, focused mainly around reducing toxicity in games. Users will now have the option to report abusive players for a variety of abuses, including harassment, intentionally feeding enemies, going AFK, or of course, cheating. Those that are frequently reported for abusive chat or spam will be given a silence penalty, which restricts their chat usage. More information on these additions can be found on Battle.net.

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?
