Three new Overwatch videos were released by Blizzard today, giving you a look at the latest character Lúcio along with a Volskaya Industries and Numbani map preview.

If you missed our livebog of the Blizzard press conference at gamescom 2015, look back over it through the link.

Volskaya Industries is a Point Capture map located near St. Petersburg, Russia—a manufacturing center responsible for producing massive, human-piloted mechs which help protect the local population.

Attacking and defending teams will be battling for control of the facility.

Numbani is a Point Capture/Payload hybrid map set in a city on the edge of the African savanna. One team must escort Doomfist’s gauntlet as it travels to the Numbani Heritage Museum. The opposing team fights to stop this weapon from reaching its the aforementioned destination.

The new character Lúcio is an “international celebrity who uses his music to change the world for the better.”

His abilities include Sonic Amplifier, Crossfade, Amp It Up, and his ultimate ability is Sound Barrier.

His introduction video and ability overview videos are below.

Overwatch goes into beta this fall.
