The free mmo will soon be graced with the presence of the Archlich of the Scourge who has served the Lich King both in life and after death.

The new Heroes of the Storm Kel'Thuzad playable hero is introduced in the awesome video above, and he plays as a ranged assassin that uses a lot of ice (being undead and all). Kel'Thuzad also has a really great looking Star Lich skin that mmo players will definitely be picking up.
