And when time warping fails, she's always got her guns.
The 'Overwatch' character Tracer is leaping into the Nexus this week for players who have prepurchased a digital copy of 'Overwatch' for PC, and next week she'll be available for purchase for all 'Heroes of the Storm' players. To introduce her to the player base at large, Blizzard has put together a spotlight video that shows off her moveset, featuring a healthy dose of altered timestreams.
Tracer is a classic MOBA assassin in that she excels in dashing in, dealing a hefty amount of damage, then quickly getting back out of harm's way. Tracer's moveset grants her an impressive amount of mobility, with her Blink ability letting her zip around the map and her Recall ability allowing her to teleport back to where she was seconds before.
In the way of attacks, Tracer can constantly lay down gunfire on enemies and hit them with a melee attack if she drifts within range. All of these attacks also charge up her heroic ability, a Pulse Bomb that can stick to enemies and explode with area-of-effect damage.
You can see this ability kit in action in the video below.
'Overwatch' PC preorderers can get access to Tracer in 'Heroes of the Storm' starting Tuesday, April 19. Everyone else can start purchasing her the week after, on April 26.
