Cheers, loves — The Cavalry is Coming to the Nexus
Before Overwatch hits next month, Heroes of the Storm players will be the first to get to use Tracer in action, as she is blasting her way into the game starting on April 27
Equipped with the chronal accelerator designed by her gorilla scientist pal, Winston, and a pair of deadly pulse pistols to match, this highly mobile ranged Assassin zips around the Battlegrounds of the Nexus, catching enemy heroes off guard and then vanishing before they have a chance to react. She can move while attacking—a first for a Heroes character—and has a single Heroic ability that she can customise by upgrading it in three different ways.
For anyone who ordered the digital deluxe version of Overwatch, they will be able to start using Tracer on April 20th, a full week early. Those who plan to purchase Origins Edition on other platforms will receive Tracer when they pick up their copy of the game starting on May 24.
