Blizzard revealed Zul'jin as the next Hero to be added to the Nexus as we predicted yesterday, when they released a teaser on Twitter.

His abilities including animations were previewed on Facebook and you can view the video here.

Abilities Overview

[Trait] Berserker
Zul’jin gains 1% Attack Speed per 1% of missing Health. 
Zul’jin can activate Berserker to increase the damage of his Basic Attacks by 25% at the cost of 2% of his maximum Health per attack.

[Q] Grievous Throw
Zul’jin throws an axe forward, dealing damage to the first 2 enemies hit and marking them for 8 seconds. Marked enemies take 50% bonus damage from Zul’jin’s next 3 Basic Attacks against them.

[W] Twin Cleave
Throw 2 axes in a large circular arc, dealing damage and slowing affected enemies by 15% per axe for 2 seconds.

[E] Regeneration
Zul’jin channels to regenerate 25% of his maximum Health over 4 seconds. Moving or taking damage while channeling will interrupt this effect.

[R1] Taz’dingo
Zul’jin is Unkillable for the next 4 seconds, and cannot be reduced to less than 1 Health. Taz’dingo!

[R2] Guillotine
Zul’jin throws a massive guillotine into the sky that crashes down on enemies in the targeted area. The lower Zul’jin’s Health, the more damage it deals.

Can't wait to try him out! Wish we could see exact numbers, cooldowns, etc. but still just knowing abilities and talents from the get go is great. Looks like he's gonna be a very high skillcap as well, or at least for berserker. I can see a basic attack build, a survivability build, and a build for q and w as well. Seems like a much higher skillcap Valla, who is better with a basic attack build than a Hungering Arrow build or Multishot build.

Blizz is getting better and better with the Talents. His Kit is very potent and all his talents seems very useful.

Interesting Hero. It seems like an AA gul'dan, instead of juggling mana you're juggling your health for damage. When he be in da Nexus, mon?

My interest is certainly piqued, but judgement will have to wait till we see cool downs and base stats. Not much utility in his kit (though headhunter looks very interesting) so he will likely hinge completely on his tuning.

for example, is he a high hit point bruiser whose gameplay will focus on a balancing act of regent and sustained damage? Or is he a high base attack glass cannon that is most dangerous when he's cornered and almost dead? Looking forward to finding out on the ptr!

I agree.  His kit seems like a Gul'dan in reverse.  It certainly will require skill to walk a fine line with your hit points.  His tuning will definately be the focus of his ability to be played.

      Maintenance has concluded for all games and Junkrat is now live together with the Hallow's End event.
      Note: * Orange Text and an Asterisk indicate a change or addition between PTR and live patch notes.
      Blizzard has done some last-minute tweaking to Junkrat's abilities. Below are full patch notes. 
      Blizzard (Source)
      General
      New Special Event: Hallow's End 2017
      Play 25 games during Hallow’s End in any mode except Custom Games, Training, or Heroes Brawl to earn spooky new items! Here are some of the treats you’ll be able to unwrap by completing the three-part quest chain: Part 1: Play 2 Games during Hallow’s End Reward: Cartoon Headless Horseman Spray Part 2: Play 8 Games during Hallow’s End Reward: Hallow’s End Warcrest Banner Part 3: Play 15 Games during Hallow’s End Reward: Headless Horseman Portrait Hallow's End Loot Chests Once Hallow’s End begins after October 17, all Loot Chests you earn through progression (except Hero-Specific Chests), or purchase using Gems will be replaced with Hallow’s End Loot Chests. Weekly Brawl Rewards after October 20 will also award one Hallow’s End Chest. Also starting with Hallow’s End, special event Loot Chests will now guarantee at least one of the limited-time items from that event—including portraits, sprays, skins, and mounts! Until Hallow’s End concludes during the week of November 13, you’ll pick up one of these limited-time Loot Chests every time you level-up or earn a weekly Heroes Brawl reward. You can also head to the Loot tab in-game to purchase Rare Hallow’s End Chests directly using Gems. Additionally, please note that any Loot Chests you already own prior to the start of the event will not convert to Hallow’s End Chests. Hotkeys
