Blizzard has unleashed a new trailer featuring their latest hero to join the ever-evolving list in free-to-play (but currently in technical alpha) MOBA Heroes of the Storm: Anub'arak, Traitor King.

Once a proud nerubian king, Anub'arak dared to stand against the Lich King's invasion, but despite his bravery, he too fell to the unrelenting Scourge," reads the hero's description. "Resurrected into undeath, the Traitor King now serves as a towering, weapon of destruction. But here in the Nexus, no one commands his power."

Hailing from the Warcraft lore, Anub'arak will take on the role as a melee Warrior who "excels at initiating fights and forcing engagements." In other words, he'll be the one jumping head first into combat. Blizzard has yet to reveal his full Hero page complete with abilities, but in the video below and the announcement post we do get a quick glimpse at three of his abilities: Burrowing Charge [E], Web Blast [R] and Impale [Q].
  • “Burrowing Charge” [E] can be activated a second time to force Anub’arak to pop up from underground. Use the maneuver to knock up unsuspecting enemies.
  • “Web Blast” [R] is fantastic for interrupting important Heroic Abilities. For example, try to Web Blast on a Valla’s “Strafe” or an Illidan using “The Hunt.”
  • “Impale” [Q] is a long ranged knock up. Use it aggressively to delay opponents from grabbing a tribute on Cursed Hollow, or to initiate a team fight.
  • Check out the Traitor King in action below, and keep an eye on the front page for further news about the new warrior.

    I hope one of his Heroic abilities (R) involves Scarabs/Locusts. Just like WarCraft III. :)
