Diablo 3’s Malthael is coming to Heroes of the Storm

Blizzard has announced the next playable character to join the Heroes of the Storm roster: Malthael, the Angel of Death who served as the primary antagonist of Diablo 3’s Reaper of Souls expansion.

As you might have already guessed if you’re an avid HoTS player, Malthael will be an Assassin class character, and uses the unique "Reaper’s Mark" debuff he applies to enemies with his basic attack to quickly sap their health while keeping his own health pool flush. As you can see from his official profile page, it will take a fair amount of effort to properly utilize Malthael to his full potential, but those who manage to do so will be able to take down unsuspecting foes before they know what hit them.

A release date for Malthael hasn’t yet been confirmed, but new Heroes of the Storm character reveals usually happen shortly before their actual release, so expect the winged death-dealer to show up in the Nexus within the next few weeks.
