Adjust Comment Print

Both Genji and the Hanamura map are available to test on the beta server, so if you're itching to get your hands on the new hero and test out the Heroes of the Storm version of Hanamura you can do so there. His ultimate, Dragonblade, mirrors that of Overwatch as well.

The new map is none other than Hanamura.

The Heroes of the Storm team over at Blizzard Entertainment have been busy. Other heroes being updated include Greymane, Cassia, Nazeebo, and Tassadar.

If April 25 is too long to wait for, Heroes of the Storm fans can jump right into the open beta to take Genji and the Hanamura map out for a spin.

Though the Hanamura map was adjusted a decent amount for its Heroes of the Storm debut, Genji stays true to his Overwatch roots in terms of skills and basic implementation.

He's bringing with him a similar skillset that he possesses in the shooter to the arena, including his prowess in jumping, Shuriken, Deflect, and Swift Strike. In addition, the game's in-game shop is set to be remodeled, adding the ability to purchase the aforementioned Loot Chests.
