With Overwatch launching later this month, and Tracer entering the Nexus just recently, I honestly thought that the next character coming to Heroes of the Storm would be ripped straight from the shooter too. Hell, in Tracer’s trailer, we saw Widowmaker at the end, which I thought was perhaps an obvious teaser for her being next to receive the MOBA treatment.
It seems I am very, very wrong though. Blizzard have begun teasing the next Heroes of the Storm character over on the game’s official Facebook page and, well, I really doubt they come from the world of Overwatch. Here’s the first clue…
It’s… Superman? Seriously, who the hell is that? Let’s take a closer look.
Try as I might, I just can’t get a proper screenshot of that huge shadow. After watching the clip around 6482 times however, I can confirm that it appears to be a dragon of some sort. That unfortunately, doesn’t help much, as Warcraft (which seems to the most logical source for this character) is filled with many winged beasts.
Does that shadow belong to Alexstraza? Nefarian perhaps? What about Deathwing, or even Malygos? It really is hard to tell. Dammit Blizzard, we need another clue!
This… doesn’t help. That is clearly a polymorph of some sort, but who’s casting it? Brightwing, a character already featured in Heroes of the Storm, already has an ability similar to the above.
So, what exactly are Blizzard hinting? Is this a dragon that can polymorph enemies? Are they hinting at another Faerie Dragon perhaps? Or maybe, these are teasers for two completely separate characters? We’ll just have to wait and see. I’m sure Blizzard will do a proper unveiling by the end of the week.
In the meantime, feel free to speculate. Who do you think this mystery character is? One commenter on Facebook caught my attention..
Holy crap! Maybe it is the innkeeper from Hearthstone? That would be next level stuff right there!
Another teaser has dropped. I’m really, really, really starting to think that this new hero is actually the innkeeper. Take a look at this…
The mention of target dummy makes me immediately think of Hearthstone. And then there’s this…
I have no idea what that top projectile is, but is that an enraged chicken there at the bottom? It really looks like it!
