Heroes of the Storm gets the Butcher today, after maintenance

Watch the awesome backstory video

The Butcher is coming to Blizzard’s Heroes of the Storm today as part of the multi-month Diablo celebration, which start this week. He’s a melee assassin hero, who has the ability to slow, mark targets to heal, and rushdown enemies. His general strategy is fairly easy to comprehend, but you can watch the video above for a better look.

Heroes is currently undergoing a maintenance period until 11AM PST, after which point I’ll take the Butcher for a test run and report back with my findings. As a reminder, Leoric is next, followed by the Diablo III Monk.

In the meantime, you can take a gander at the full patchnotes for today.
