Blizzard Entertainment has announced their latest patch update for Heroes of the Storm, covering several bug fixes, a new champion and balancing the updates. If you haven’t heard about this game, or you suddenly feel the urge to play it, you can do that here.
As from today, the Ranked Season 4 has officially begun, and to encourage players to participate, Blizzard Entertainment is rewarding a new portrait, mount and gold coins. The rewards from Season 3 will be awarded upon logging in after the patch. There is also a special event quest introduced in order for you to get your hands on Cho’gall and own the character permanently. In order to do this, the quest reads that you need to win two games while paired with someone who owns the champion.
Now, the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Heroes of the Storm is adding a new member to their family, and as of Wednesday, March 15th, you can play as the new champion, Probius.
Probius is a strategic range specialist who uses ability combos to keep the enemies away from him since he has low HP and armor. He doesn’t have a mount but has 10% increased movement speed and an ability called Worker Rush (Z) which gives him 60% movement increase for 5 seconds. he also has Warp in Pylon (D).
His basic abilities are:
Disruption Pulse (Q): A line of energy damaging all enemies it passes through. It also explodes if it passes through a Ward Rift.
Warp Rift (W): An Areal effect slowing down enemies and exploding when in a collision with Disruption Pulse. Lasts 9 seconds.
Photon Cannon (E): A cannon which fires a shot per second and lasts for 11 seconds.
And here as Probius’s heroic abilities:
Pylon Overcharge (R): Pylons around the hero, damaging enemy heroes.
Null Gate (R): A barrier of negative energy, slowing down enemies by 80% and dealing massive damage to everything in its path.
Apart from the new hero and the new season, as well as the minor bug fixes, Blizzard added several new mounts which can be found in the shop, two skins for the new hero Probius and Bundles with limited time purchase.
