The latest character to join the roster for Heroes of the Storm is loud music blasting beloved healer DJ, Lúcio .

Announced on Feb. 3rd, Blizzard revealed Overwatch hero, Lúcio is coming to the Nexus. Lúcio will be a support based character with his normal healing abilities which involves moving faster on his skates even through tough terrain.

Lúcio specializes in healing, his Sound Barrier ultimate carries over into Heroes of the Storm along with his Reverse Amp which inflicts damage over time on enemies and buffs up his amp to four seconds on passive.
