Overwatch Support, Lucio, Coming to Heroes of the Storm; New In-Game Event, “For Azeroth”, Starts 15 February!
Overwatch support hero, Lúcio, is now available to play on the Heroes of the Storm PTR [Public Test Realm]! From the streets of Rio to the clubs on King’s Row, Lúcio’s beats bring the party to life, and drive the people to action. Now he’s preparing to tour the Nexus, ready to break it down, and to continue fighting for what’s right. Lúcio brings with him his Wall Ride ability, making it possible to traverse impassable terrain and walk through the enemy team. His basic abilities include Soundwave, which allows him to deal damage to an area, and knock enemies back. He also has crossfade, an ability that can passively heal or speed boost himself and surrounding allies. Lúcio’s Heroic Ability lets him shield all nearby allies for six seconds with Sound Barrier, just as he does in Overwatch. He also has a secondary Heroic Ability, Reverse Amp. This new skill allows him to hurt enemy heroes for 4 seconds with his Crossfade track, causing Healing Boost to inflict damage, while Speed Boost slows their movement speed by 45%.
Lúcio brings a different type of support architype to Heroes of the Storm, and will be a valuable character pick option when trying to secure victory! For more information about Lúcio, check out his In Development video below, or visit the Heroes of the Storm website here.
In other Heroes of the Storm news, a new in-game event, “For Azeroth”, is preparing to come to the Nexus! Your quest is simple: between 15 February – 15 March AEDT/NZDT, complete 15 games with a friend using any Hero from the Warcraft universe.
