Blizzard has released a gameplay preview for the newest character introduced to the Overwatch universe: Lúcio. Lúcio is a freedom-fighting DJ wielding a Sonic Amplifier which can be used to heal his companions and provide a temporary speed boost as long as they’re in range. He can also create a Sound Barrier which acts as a shield for himself and his allies. Check out a full match featuring Lúcio below and let us know what you think of Overwatch’s newest hero in the comments. Armed with his signature Sonic Amplifier, Lúcio never misses a beat in this complete, unedited match from an early version of Overwatch, captured in 60 FPS on PC.

It’s important to point out that the shields from Sound Barrier appear to be very


OVERHYPE: From Russia With Mechs

A new teaser image from the Overwatch team resuscitates the hype train leading into gamescom on Thursday. Volskaya Industries CEO announces increased mech production after new attacks from Siberian omnium. — Overwatch (@PlayOverwatch) August 4, 2015 So what can we extract from the image alone, since there isn’t actually an interview for us to analyze? Let’s get started: Right out the gate, this could almost certainly be a character reveal, except for the part where doing another Russian character after announcing Zarya seems like an odd choice.

The bottom line? Consider me dubious of the possibility that Katya is a new character. Second, there’s the bulk of the screenshot that showcases a
