Blizzard hit a gold mine with the release of Overwatch, with over 25 million people playing across all three platforms. People who have never even played the games are likely to recognize a few characters from the colorful world, so it only made sense to start adding them to the series crossover MOBA Heroes of the Storm. HotS is already home to the Offensive speedster Tracer, as well as the Russian tank Zarya, it only makes sense to add a support character, which comes in the form of the energetic wallriding musician, Lucio.
In the Overwatch world, Lucio is a DJ who uses his music to aid allies in battle, healing them or giving a speed boost through his Crossfade ability. He will bring these abilities to his new game as well, where he will have access to all of the same abilities as in Overwatch, as well as a new ability called Reverse Amp which will either injure the enemy heroes who are in range, or slow them down, depending on which song is being played. HotS, much like Overwatch, require quite a bit of team work and cooperation, which means Lucio will be able to turn the tides of battle with a well coordinated team with his group healing and speed abilities. So that makes one character from every category but defense, so who is it gonna be next? Please don’t let it be Mei….
