Blizzard announced during its PAX East panel today that Warcraft’s Sylvanas will be the next playable hero in its Heroes of the Storm MOBA.


A new Battleground, Tomb of the Spider Queen, was also announced a small map with a dark and moody interior.

Players will earn gems when killing off the minions which can then be used to summon a wave of Webweavers to attack your enemies. If you die, you will drop gems which can then be picked up by your opponents.

Another new Battleground, Sky Temple, is a large featuring core objectives outside the lanes. Teams must “periodically fight to capture the ancient temples,” defeat their guardians, and use their powers to destroy enemy fortifications.

As far as Sylvanas is concerned, she specializes in DPS and Siege damage, as well as corrupting and cursing towers and minions.

Here abilities are: Withering Fire, Shadow Dagger, Haunting Wave, Wailing Arrow and Possession.
