Once a member of the United Powers League on Earth, StarCraft’s Alexi Stukov has had a rough life, after life, un-life? Over time he endured death, resurrection, infestation by the Zerg, and on and on. Now, he’s made his way to the Nexus, where his ill treatment endows him with abilities suited to this new kind of battle.
Stukov arrives as part of the Heroes of the Storm 2.0 update. He features some very distinct bio-warfare-type abilities which all come together in his Trait “Bio-Kill Switch”. This trait activates both Stukov’s basic abilities at once, resulting in both healing and damage being done.
In addition to the new hero, this week’s update makes changes to animations and the game’s interface, including players now being able to disable screen shake, emoji autocompletion, and more.
The full list of changes can be read on the Blizzard site.
