Beginning today, Blizzard is adding Protoss leader Artanis to Heroes of the Storm accounts belonging to those who have pre-ordered Star Craft II’s latest expansion. Heroes players will simply need to log into their accounts to find Artanis waiting and ready for battle.

Artanis comes with a variety of abilities players will love, including a Purifier Beam that will chase opponents around the field and deal damage to anything that comes in contact with it. He also features a trait named “Shield Overload,” which grants him a protective shield whenever his health falls below 50 percent.
