Three new Dota 2 heroes that were shown in Artifact

9 May, 2018Sannio
There are a few heroes that are already confirmed and, apparently, will be added to Dota 2. Who are they? To begin with, we must clarify that not all cards in Artifact that feature unknown characters are heroes, most of them are creeps and minions. Unfortunately, there are not a lot of confirmed heroes to this day. Nevertheless, after Valve’s press-conference, IGN reported that three new heroes that are featured in Artifact (Sorla Khan, Rix and Kanna) will be added to Dota 2. What we can learn about them from the in-game dialogues is pretty interesting:

original

Sorla Khan is an Oglodi. She replaced Axe as the leader of the Red Mist army. She is infamous for being cruel and unreasonable, even for an Oglodi. Sorla is hunting for Axe and is planning to flay him, possibly for what he did to the Red Army. Apart from that, Pangolier has already fought her but the results are unknown, also Juggernaut wants do discuss her plans regarding Axe.

There is not really much information about Rix, he is kind of a humanoid-wolf of the unknown race. According to Dark Willow’s in-game line, Legion Commander and Rix are long-time enemies, and he is still planning to kill her.

large

Kanna is a mysterious character that has departed somewhere but hasn’t returned yet. She is a horned, demon-like creature. Both Phantom Lancer and Juggernaut know here, and Juggernaut often asks about rumours regarding her return.

It is still unclear when these heroes will be added to Dota 2, and we hope that the developers won’t change their minds about adding them.
