A new character is on the way for Blizzard's Heroes of the Storm. The latest addition is the final boss from Diablo III's Reaper of Souls expansion, Malthael.

The reveal happened today on Twitter, when the Heroes of the Storm account sent out the message below: 

The link then takes players to the profile page for Malthael, outlining his abilities and giving players an idea of the role he might occupy in the multiplayer action game.

Blizzard did not provide a specific release window for the character.


Our Take
Malthael doesn't exactly have the fan base as, say, D.Va – so this may not electrify players beyond Heroes of the Storm's dedicated base. Even so, Malthael was cool in Diablo III, so I'm glad this Aspect of Death gets an extended lease on "life."
