04/19 Update: Tracer is now playable for anyone who pre-purchased a Digital copy of Overwatch: Origins Edition!
Cheers, loves—the cavalry’s coming to the Nexus!
Tracer, the time-jumping adventurer from Overwatch, is getting ready to make her Heroes of the Storm® debut! 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.
Tracer brings a diverse set of unique abilities and talents into the Nexus. She can move while attacking—a first for a Heroes character—and has a single Heroic ability that she can customize by upgrading it in three different ways.
Find out more about how Tracer plays in the video below.
The first Overwatch character to appear in Heroes of the Storm, Tracer will be available starting April 19 exclusively to those who pre-purchase a digital copy of Overwatch: Origins Edition for Windows PC. Starting on April 26, she’ll become available for sale to everyone in the Nexus.
If you pre-purchased the PC version of Overwatch: Origins Edition through the Battle.net Shop, Tracer will be waiting for you in Heroes the moment she goes live. 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. Learn more about Overwatch—and the other bonuses that come with Origins Edition—at PlayOverwatch.com, and in our support articles.
We can’t wait for you to experience this new hero for yourself and see all the new time-warping, death-defying tactics you can come up with. See you in the Nexus!
* Must pre-purchase through the Battle.net Shop to receive Tracer for Heroes of the Storm beginning April 19, 2016.
