On June 3rd, the @Playhearthstone Twitter account - the official Twitter account for Blizzard’s hearthstone, tweeted the following message:
What this character lacks in height, he makes up for in ferocity! Can you guess his identity? http://t.co/49G5dt9fhl pic.twitter.com/ClHFqDs8DC— hearthstone (@Playhearthstone) June 3, 2015
On June 4th, Blizzard released a blog announcing that the new hero is none other than Magni, dwarven King of Ironforge.
The hero skin is purchasable in-game through the cash shop. Purchase of the hero skin only affects the class hero and does not change any of the cards associated with that class, add any cards to that class, nor are any of the skins considered new classes. Currently, only Magni is scheduled for release; however, more heroes are anticipated soon!
Which hero skins would you like to see released? Comment below.
hearthstone is available free from Blizzard's Battle.net service. Hero skins will be priced at $9.99 USD each.
