Update: who likes video? You do! We’ve embedded Lúcio’s intro and move set below, along with the showcase of the two new maps.

During Blizzard’s packed Gamescom press conference, the developer revealed some more elements of their already heaving multiplayer shooter. Adding to the massive character roster is Lúcio, a Brazilian musician, and two new maps have been added to the game’s selection of battle arenas.

Lúcio is Overwatch’s answer to a bard class, supports his comrades by using his musical talents to heal them and boost their speed.

The new maps are Numbani, an African city where omnics and humans live together in peace, where players must escort Doom Fist’s gauntlet to the Numbani Heritage Museum. And on Volskaya Industries, a Russian manufacturing center near Siberia where the hostility between humans and omnics remains strong, opposing teams battle over control of the map by capturing or defending critical objectives.
