Overwatch has received aggressive post-launch support from Blizzard Entertainment, and the steady stream of content continues even years later. Today, the developer announced that the game would receive a new character called Brigitte.
Brigitte is Torbjörn's daughter – another hero in Overwatch – and specializes in armor and healing. She can throw repair packs to mend other players, and also automatically heals nearby allies when she damages foes with her flail weapon. Her flail is capable of a wide swing to strike multiple enemies, or a whip shot that stuns a foe at range.
When entering the battlefield, Brigitte's barrier shield provides defense while she attacks enemies with her shield bash. Lastly, Brigitte's ultimate rally ability gives her a substantial boost of speed and provides long-lasting armor to all nearby allies. She sounds like the ultimate support character from what Blizzard has revealed so far.
Brigitte is currently available for testing on the test servers, but it wasn't revealed when she will be added to the game for everyone.
Overwatch is a first-person shooter which features various heroes battling various villains. Each character is unique and has their own set of abilities and skills. Despite the diverse cast of fighters, the game is surprisingly balanced at a casual level, and you never feel like you're at a disadvantage if you choose one over the other. The game is currently available on Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4.
