Heroes of the Storm gets another playable Overwatch character, along with a map from Blizzard's team shooter.

Genji is Overwatch's next character coming to Blizzard's MOBA Heroes of the Storm as a playable character, Blizzard has announced. Genji is available as part of the game's 2.0 beta, which kicked off yesterday.

You can check out his abilities, per Blizzard, below:

TRAIT
Cyber Agility (D)

Activate to jump to target area

BASIC ABILITIES
Shuriken (Q)

Throw 3 Shuriken in a spread pattern dealing each damaging the first enemy it hits.

Stores up to 3 charges. Shuriken's cooldown replenishes all charges at the same time.

Deflect (W)

Become Protected for 1.25 seconds. Any damage blocked during this period causes Genji to throw a Kunai toward the nearest enemy, prioritizing Heroes and dealing damage.

Swift Strike (E)

Dash forward, dealing damage to all enemies in a line. Enemy Heroes who die within 2 seconds after being hit by Swift Strike cause the cooldown and Mana cost to be refunded.

HEROIC ABILITIES
Dragonblade (R)

Unleash the Dragonblade for 8 seconds. While active, Dragonblade can be reactivated to lunge forward and slash in a huge arc. If any enemy Heroes are killed within 2 seconds after being hit by Dragonblade, Swift Strike's cooldown is reset.


X-Strike (R)

Perform 2 perpendicular slashes that deal damage and ignite after 1.25 seconds, dealing additional damage to enemies in their area of effect.

Genji arrives alongside Hanamura, a map inspired by the Overwatch map of the same name, although much of it has been reworked. You can check out the new map in the video below:
