LOOT 14 : Roadhog



  • Animated Comic is out. Super cool, has skins for the new event in it. (Torb, Mercy, Reinhard, Tracer) (source)
  • New content being launched on April 11th.
    • The omnic crisis, or King’s Row uprising – will be the game’s first in-universe event. Previously, events were seasonal and tied to real-world festivities like the holidays, Chinese New Year and so on.
    • Kaplan also confirmed that there’s going to be a playable element to the omnic crisis event, though he would not say if this will manifest itself in a new mode or map. “The event is going to be something – when players see the event and play the event, I think they’ll see that we’ve been listening to their feedback,” Kaplan added.  (source)
  • Widowmaker skin to come (amelie lacroix?)
  • Next Hero is in the very advanced stages (art stage)
    • “Yes! I absolutely know who the next hero is going to be,” Kaplan said in response to our question about the 25th playable character. “The next hero is very far along in development, so we’re at the point where we’re doing art for that hero, we’re doing a lot of aggressive play-testing.” (source)  
  • Highlights saves should be available before the end of summer (this is *not* a replay system)
  • Widowmaker statue available for pre-order $150 (source)
