Brazilian DJ Turned Freedom Fighter! Watch 7 minutes of Lucio Gameplay

Blizzard reveals a new hero Lucio for its team-based shooter Overwatch at gamescom 2015. Similar to Sona in League of Legends, new hero Lucio uses his music to fight. As a support hero in Overwatch, he can use cutting-edge Sonic Amplifier buffets enemies with projectiles and knocks foes back with blasts of sound. He also plays two different songs—one to heal his team and the other to boost their movement speed—and uses his Crossfade technique to switch between them at will. You can check out the seven-minute Lucio gameplay video below.

Apart from Lucio, Blizzard has also released a series of gameplay videos at its Youtube channel. Overwatch’s beta is scheduled to release worldwide this fall.

 

Star Trek Online STO MMORPG F2P Sc-Fi MMO game

Star Trek Online is getting ready to celebrate its third anniversary on February 2nd, 2013. To celebrate the occasion, and to thank our players, Q is hosting parties on Earth Spacedock and Qo’noS running from around 10am PST on Thursday, January 31st through around 10am PST on Thursday, February 14th. Talk to Q each day and help him coordinate the guest list for the party and receive a fun prize for your efforts.

Additionally, Starfleet Command has been getting reports about a strange temporal anomaly in the Azure Nebula. Early intelligence has linked this anomaly with Tholian experiments that are using the nebula’s unique properties to gain access to the past. Such a conclusion has been supported by stray subspace signals being intercepted from the area with Starfleet transponder codes dating back to the mid-24th century.

Level 6 Federation Lieutenants can speak with Engineer Kani on Earth Spacedock for the latest information about this situation, and to learn what can be done to help. Those who complete the mission will earn a Support Cruiser Starship – Ambassador Class (Tier 3), as well as a Support Cruiser Retrofit Starship – Ambassador Class (Tier 5) – this Retrofit can only be earned by completing the mission during the three-year anniversary event, and the box that it is contained in can only be opened once a player reaches Rear Admiral rank. Ship stats will be posted in an upcoming Dev Blog.

The Klingon Empire, fearing that the Federation is developing a new weapon based on Tholian technologies, has also launched an inquiry into what is happening in the Azure Nebula. And, not to be outdone, they are rewarding a Battlecruiser Starship – Kamarag Class (Tier 3) along with a Battlecruiser Retrofit Starship – Kamarag Class (Tier 5) – this Retrofit can only be earned by completing the mission during the three-year anniversary event, and the box that it is contained in can only be opened once a player reaches Brigadier General rank. Level 22 KDF Commanders can speak with Engineer Tum’Era on Qo’noS for more information. Ship stats will be posted in an upcoming Dev Blog.

Thank you to all the fans that have made Star Trek Online such a great place to enjoy the universe of Star Trek, and we’re looking forward to another year of exploring where no one has gone before. See you in-game!
