Malthael is Coming to the Nexus
Yesterday, the Blizzard Launcher’s Heroes of the Storm tab mysteriously showed only one image instead of the usual slideshow of news, depicting three candles. Today we know it was a teaser. The candles were reminiscent of the Diablo III cinematic intro’s candle cluing us in that the next hero came from the Diablo universe.
The new animated GIF image reveals Malthael.
In addition, new skins, mounts, and sprays are coming along with Malthael. The patch will introduce Summer-themed skins and Diablo III-themed skins for multiple heroes.
Speculation: There is one particular mount skin that feels out of place: a widow on a web graphic on a surfboard. Is Blizzard hinting Widowmaker coming soon to the Nexus?
