    Heroes of the Storm is a right mish-mash of Blizzard characters and there’s a new one on the way.

    Overwatch’s headphone wearing speedster Lucio will be joining the Heroes of the Storm roster and will be hitting the PTR on 6 February. Lucio, is of course a support hero and this is how he rolls…

    Trait

    • Wall Ride (D)
      • When moving alongside impassable terrain, Lúcio can walk through other units, and his Movement Speed is increased by 20%. This effect stacks with other Movement Speed bonuses.

    Basic Abilities

    • Soundwave (Q)
      • Deal damage to enemies in a cone-shaped area and knock them back.
    • Crossfade (W)
      • Play one of two tracks that passively provide allied Heroes with either a Speed Boost or a Healing Boost in a large radius around you. Activate Crossfade to swap tracks.
        • Healing Boost: Restore a small amount of Health every second to Lúcio and nearby allied Heroes.
        • Speed Boost: Increase the Movement Speed of Lúcio and nearby allied Heroes by 15%.
    • Amp It Up (E)
      • Raise Lúcio’s Crossfade track volume for 3 seconds, amping Speed Boost to 45% increased Movement Speed, and significantly increasing the Healing rate of Healing Boost.

    Heroic Abilities

    • Sound Barrier (R)
      • After 1 second, Lúcio and nearby allied Heroes gain a massive Shield that rapidly decays over the next 6 seconds.
    • Reverse Amp (R)
      • Blast Lúcio’s Crossfade track at enemy Heroes for 4 seconds, causing Healing Boost to inflict damage every second, and Speed Boost to Slow Movement Speed by 45%.
      • Passive: Increase Amp It Up’s duration to 4 seconds.

    Details of his Talents can be found in the full update and here’s his trailer.
