Blizzard’s MOBA Heroes of the Storm has a pretty full roster, but it looks like Blizzard isn’t quite done adding new heroes to the roster yet. Blizzard has recently announced on Twitter that the next hero that will be added to the game will be none other than World of Warcraft’s Garrosh Hellscream.
For those unfamiliar with Warcraft lore, Garrosh Hellscream is the son of Grommash (or Grom) Hellscream, who died fighting alongside Thrall, one of Warcraft’s more iconic heroes. Garrosh was also briefly made the chieftain of the Horde faction in the game, but players later fought against him towards the end of the Mists of Pandaria expansion, and where he also had a role in the Warlords of Draenor expansion.

He has become rather famous since his introduction and it will be interesting to see how he will play in Heroes of the Storm. Given his character in Warcraft, we can only assume that his character in Heroes of the Storm is that he will be a melee fighter, but exactly what his abilities are remains to be seen.
However for gamers who do take part in Blizzard’s PTRs, it seems that Garrosh will be introduced to the PTR come 31st of July, which means that following successful testing and balancing, he should be playable in the main game not too long after that, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more information.
