Starcraft II’s latest expansion, Legacy of the Void, is due out on November 10th but for those who pre purchase the game there will be a new champion to use in Heroes of the Storm. Artanis is the next hero to be added to the nexus and Legacy of the Void pre purchasers will get access to the new champion a full week ahead of his standard release on October 27th.
Here’s a brief introduction to the new hero from the Starcraft II page “When the First Contact War ended, Aiur had been conquered by the zerg Swarm. The protoss stood on the brink of oblivion, at risk of seeing their civilization disappear entirely. It was Artanis, a young executor, who prevented a bloody civil war and guided both the Khalai and Nerazim factions through the chaos of the Brood War. Now, with the Golden Armada at his command, he intends to take back Aiur and prepare his people for the final battle against an ancient and indomitable enemy.”
And here is a short video explaining how the champion will handle in Heroes of the Storm
Starcraft II’s latest expansion is due out on 10th November but in the meantime there are four prologue missions available for free, for anyone to play, to set the stage for the story to come.
