Right on the heels of the highly-anticipated new shooter from Blizzard releases in May, Overwatch‘s “mascot” Tracer will be making an early appearance in the studio’s popular MOBA Heroes of the Storm, with the character to make her debut in the game later this month.

Blizzard has revealed that Tracer will be available for players that pre-order Overwatch: Origins Edition on PC will receive her as a playable character for Heroes of the Storm on April 19th, 2016, while the general public will be able to purchase Tracer beginning on April 26th, 2016.

Tracer’s appearance in the game comes right before the debut of Overwatch in May, with an open beta for the game coming on May 3rd, 2016, followed by the game’s full release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on May 24th, 2016.

Heroes of the Storm is available on PC and Mac – in the meantime, you can check out a brand new video featuring Tracer in action below:
