The teasers are over with the reveal by Blizzard showing that the newest hero to join Overwatch’s character roster is Brigitte, daughter of Torbjörn!

A blurb breaking down the character on the official Overwatch site states she is a support character who “specializes in armor. She can throw Repair Packs to heal teammates, or automatically heal nearby allies when she damages foes with her Flail. Her Flail is capable of a wide swing to strike multiple targets, or a Whip Shot that stuns an enemy at range. When entering the fray, Barrier Shield provides personal defense while she attacks enemies with Shield Bash. Brigitte’s ultimate ability, Rally, gives her a substantial short-term boost of speed and provides long-lasting armor to all her nearby allies.”

The site also features her backstory, showcasing her journey and the large influence that Reinhardt had in Brigitte’s life, in the end becoming her own type of warrior when being a mechanic wasn’t enough and her dreams for life stretched further.

Currently a release date for her debut has not been announced but with a ton of new information and an origin story trailer which you can watch below, she should be sure to support and bring her exciting new skills to the game very soon.
