Heroes of the Storm is a free-to-play MOBA from the brilliant minds over at Blizzard. It takes many beloved characters from other Blizzard titles and pits them against one another in an all-out battle. One of these heroes, the Worgen assassin Greymane, has just been confirmed to be getting a brand new skin.
In a Twitter Q&A, Game Director Alan Dabiri confirmed that a new Greymane skin should be coming “fairly soon” to Heroes of the Storm. The majority of the comments on the tweet seem to be asking for a “Sharkmane” skin based off of an in-game spray which was originally shown off in a video on the official Heroes of the Storm Youtube page.
If this skin was to become a reality, Greymane would look a whole lot less grey in his human form and a lot more shark-like when he worgs. There have definitely been stranger skins in Blizzard games and this one could really look great if done well.
Greymane as a character comes from the Warcraft series and was first seen in the World of Warcraft: Cataclysm expansion. Since then, he has appeared in Mist of Pandaria, Legion, and of course, in Heroes of the Storm. In HotS, he is a fan-favourite assassin character with some pretty awesome beast-centric abilities.
While there is no actual date on the impending release of the mysterious new Greymane skin, it should be coming to us “fairly soon” which is always a nice thing to hear.
