Heroes of the Storm previews Tracer’s mechanics

Cheers, Heroes of the Storm fans, the cavalry’s nearly here. Tracer is dropping into the game for Overwatch pre-orders on April 19th, and a brief new video highlights how the shooter’s erstwhile mascot will play once she’s dropped into Blizzard’s MOBA. It’s a very different style of game, but Tracer will keep her own uniquely mobile flavor, starting with her ability to move while attacking.

Beyond that passive trait, Tracer also possesses analogous abilities to her FPS self, including quick teleportation, altering time, and throwing rather nasty bombs around when she needs to. There’s also a promise of a single Heroic ability with three different upgrade paths to alter Tracer’s overall playstyle. Check out the video preview for the character just below.

Heroes of the Storm isn’t ‘just’ classic Blizzard characters.  It is any and all Blizzard IPs that they can shell into it.  Expect to see Legion special edition to have one as well.  They cross IPs more often than Marvel Cinematic Universe does.

Isn’t it a bit weird to have her in HotS representing classic Blizzard characters…before her game even launches ? I guess blizzard knows how to cash in on the hype :)

Though in general the Master skins are really hit/miss.

Tongle It’s particularly silly considering it’s one singular pose on one single character. 
“Those dastardly SJWs are too sensitive!” 
“OMG YOU CHANGED HER POSE WTF IS NEXT FUCKING BURKAS?!”

too late. 
On a more “serious” note I think the butt debacle is going to follow blizz for a minute.

Primary patch notes include an all covering tasteful Hijab because “the booty game ridiculous”.

Jack Pipsam Agreed, on all points… especially that master skin, wtf lol. Who thought it was a good idea to strap a cooler to her chest?? Because it looks like someone could easily fit a case of Newcastle in there (she is Bri’ish after all)
That Spectre skin and bike tho… omg. Do Overwatch pre-orders get those too?? xD

She looks like she could be fun to play, although knowing me it would take a week before I could play her without embarrassing myself.
 I would love to see an Overwatch Map at some point.
Although her Master Skin looks kinda meh tbh, that Spectre Phantom Mount tho looks awesome though, I am now imaging all the other hots characters looking gangster on it.
