Heroes of the Storm: Model and Skin Updates

Following the announcement of the upcoming Heroes of the Storm holiday skins, Blizzard has revealed character model updates and master skins for everyone's favorite Archdruid and Rockstar: Malfurion and E.T.C. While the previous models for these two heroes still made sense with the game's art-style, the team is making efforts to bring out greater portrait quality, face definition and character textures to many of the game's current heroes as development progresses.

Additionally, holding true to the goal of giving every hero an unlockable "Master Skin", the upcoming skins for Malfurion and E.T.C finally make an appearance as seen in the video below.
