Blizzard’s mash-up MOBA, Heroes of the Storm, is enjoying the newly acquired company of The Lost Vikings - a new three-in-one hero for players to use in the Nexus. The addition is a first for the game, as it marks the first hero not associated with either World of Warcraft, Diablo or Starcraft.
The nordic trio first made their debut back in 1993 on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, but were re-released for free via Blizzard’s Battle.net store.
The Lost Vikings fill the spot of specialist for a very good reason: each viking can be controlled independently with their own unique abilities. Olaf is a natural tank with high regen and the ability to slow enemies. Baleog can deal splash damage to enemies behind his current target. And Erik is extremely agile, while also sporting a much longer attack range.
That’s not all though. The Lost Vikings arrived in a longboat full of patch notes, including a major balance rework, interface overhauls and bug fixes. We’ve got the full patch notes on the next page for you to take a gander at, before you begin plundering the battlegrounds with the troublesome trio above.
