Blizzard Entertainment recently revealed a new character for their hit MOBA game Heroes of the Storm. This new character is named Probius and is an incredibly cute fish-like robot.

Blizzard’s character description of Probius is as follows:

Since his activation, Probius has always wanted to prove himself. He may be small, but he made a big difference by warping in a critical pylon during the retaking of Aiur. As the bravest of probes, Probius is eager to fulfill his purpose in the Nexus.

In addition to Probius’ inclusion in the game’s roster, Heroes of the Storm will also be receiving a new patch in the near future. This update will include a new UI addition called Party Frames which is very similar to the UI players would see when watching past broadcasts. Killstreak flames will also be making their return in a new way and the audio you hear when killstreaks and hero takedowns occur will also be getting revamped. Lastly, a new addition called ‘The Kill Feed’ will display on the left side of your screen while in game and will notify players anytime a takedown occurs.

You can read a more extended and detailed rundown of what will be changed over on the Heroes of the Storm website. The patch will hit the Public Test Realm next week and Blizzard will be giving more details about this update in the next few days.

Be sure to watch the trailer for yourself below to see Probius showcase his abilities and keep an eye out next week to see just when Blizzard will be rolling out the game’s latest patch.
