Last 12 months, the Machines of War occasion was introduced at Gamescom – it heralded new maps, characters, and skins for Heroes of the Storm. It was the primary StarCraft-themed occasion for the sport, and it seems like we’re in all probability getting one thing related this 12 months, maybe themed across the current Hearthstone enlargement Knights of the Frozen Throne.

So, that appears like some form of Nerubian pores and skin for Zagara, a Dread Knight pores and skin for Sonya, and probably a splendidly meme-y Dreadlord Jaina pores and skin. Some folks have been speculating that it could be associated to Kel’thuzad, one of many oft-requested heroes, going off the truth that the order of the Nerubian after which armour-focused reveals for Zagara and Sonya are in the identical order because the Naxxramas raid from World of Warcraft, however that could be a stretch. It’s positively one thing undead.
When will that be introduced? Tomorrow! Looks like Blizzard will probably be displaying off a video at 18:00 CEST (17:00 BST, 09:00 PT, 12:00 ET, and 02:00 AEDT) so look out for that round then.
