GamesCom 2015 Blizzard Media Briefing: Meet Lúcio – the Hero with a vibe
I was at the GamesCom 2015 Blizzard Media Briefing where Blizzard Entertainment unveiled the newest hero to join the Overwatch roster: Lucio.
Real Name: Lúcio Correia dos Santos
Occupation: DJ; Freedom Fighter
Base of Operations: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Lúcio is a mobile music themed support hero equiped with a Sonic Amplifier, which can be used to shoot the enemy or to knock them back using its secondary function.
During combat he is continuously playing one of two songs with his Crossfade ability. One song is used to heal, the other to speed up your allies and yourself.The effect of his song can be increased by his Amp It Up skill.
Finally, with his ultiamte the Sound Barrier he’s able to briefly provide his allies and himself with personal shields for a brief moment.
To top it off, his skates allow him to slide on walls, and he extend it by jumping from wall to wall. This also allows him to bypass the enemies’ defense.
Lúcio is meant to be played as either a supporter or using his mobility and knock back as a skirmisher.
