Gaming News:Overwatch Reveals Mace-Wielding Combat Engineer as Next Playable Hero

Recommended Posts



Overwatch has been teasing a new hero for a few days now. Following the recent cosmetics update Blizzard put out a short story update to the Overwatch lore vault. The new addition detailed a mission gone awry that had resulted in a severely injured Torbjörn rescued by Reinhardt. The aftermath of Reinhardt's heroism resulted in a letter penned by Torbjörn to his wife Ingrid. The letter reassures Ingrid that he made it out of harm's way and will be coming home soon... and that Reinhardt will be the one to name their daughter.

That daughter is the new hero joining Overwatch: Brigitte Lindholm.


Brigitte's abilities haven't been detailed, but from her new origin video we can guess that she will fit into a hardy support character meant to heal or reinforce allies on the battlefield while also able to take some damage by herself. 



No release date has been given for Brigitte's update, but players can expect to see her fighting for Overwatch in the near future.
