Teasing : Two new heroes on their way?

Did you miss news about Overwatch ? Well cheer up love, the cavalry’s here with some interesting news.

Today the different Overwatch accounts published on Twitter some wanted posters. As you might already think they could be related to future playable characters. Of course they are not as charismatic as Tracer or Lúcio, but they do have some nice psychopath heads.

From a personal point of view, I do believe that the character wearing a gas mask is already present in one of the official Overwatch artwork, as Lúcio was already present in the trailer.

Lucio Gameplay Preview | Overwatch

This is not a GamesCom 2015 preview. This 7-minute gameplay video was posted by Blizzard today Aug 11 to showcase Lucio in action, and whoever played it reached Top 3 in that match. So he’s definitely a pretty good DPS and support character, as he heals his teammates too. This video takes place in the Numbani map.

Around 00:03:40, you can see Lucio’s Sonic Amplifier ability used to knockback Hanzo off the terrace to fall to his death.

Lucio Gameplay Preview | Overwatch

Lucio can dodge enemy damage by accelerating his speed and literally racing on the wall for a short time. That’s racing along the wall, not climbing. That’s Hanzo.

Get some popcorn and sit tight to watch this Lucio Gameplay video. Overwatch beta begins this Fall 2015. Stay tuned.

GamesCom 2015 – Overwatch Life-Size Statues by FX Deco Studio
