Overwatch's cyborg ninja Genji is the latest addition to the Heroes Of The Storm roster, bringing his special abilities with him. Prepare to Shuriken, Deflect and Swift Strike your team to victory.

As well as his primary abilities Genji rocks the 240 damage Dragonblade and the 135 damage X-Strike as his heroic abilities. "Once the carefree youngest scion of the Shimada clan, Genji was cut down by his own brother for refusing to take part in their illegal ventures. Grafted into a cyborg body by Overwatch, Genji walks his own path as one who fights for what's right," says Blizzard.

Blizzard also gave us an in-depth look at the new Hanamura map for Heroes Of The Storm which will be released on April 25. It's a payload map with "a large two-lane battleground set within the sprawling grounds of Shimada Castle."

Heroes Of The Storm Beta 2.0 players can check out the new map and Genji today.
