These new set of skins for the upcoming Heroes of the Storm patch update will give you some nerdgasms.
Straight out of the Heroes of the Storm Americas Championship, Blizzard teased some new content for their MOBA game, and the new skins are just lovely. But it?s not just skins that they teased, but also some new heroes for the MOBA that fans will surely be excited of.
The two upcoming heroes were Artanis the Protoss Warrior and Lt. Morales, the Medic unit that was based on the toon drawn on the Medic?s armor. Unfortunately no hints or video clips to show off their skills, but Blizzard did share the different skins that these two heroes will get once they become available. One cool color variation for Lt. Morales? master skin has a big resemblance to Samus Aran of the Metroid series, which is more of a homage to the series. Another cool color variation, this time with Artanis, is having the same color scheme with the EVA Unit 01 from the Neon Genesis Evangelion series.
Aside from the different skins and color variations, there are two new costumes, each for Starcraft?s Jim Raynor and the Warcraft Dwarf Falstad. Raynor sports a marshal skin complete with Wild West style themed abilities, Falstad will have his Buccaneer skin with pirate theme abilities where his basic attack is now throwing cannon balls instead of axes.
Then there are new mounts to collect, complete with different color variations. Here is the full list of the skins and mounts that were teased by Blizzard at the Heroes of the Storm Americas Championship
