Starcraft Medic Coming to Heroes of the Storm

Starcraft Medic Coming to Heroes of the Storm

In the Q&A session at Gamescom with Blizzard Entertainment about their two recent free-to-play game offerings, Heroes of the Storm and Hearthstone, the developers revealed that a new unit, the medic from Starcraft would be coming to Heroes of the Storm.

The developers, through introducing more supports, want to beef up the roster with the double ban system in place for tournaments.
