Overwatch's latest hero is combat medic Baptiste

Over the past few years, Overwatch has recieved aggressive post-launch support from Blizzard Entertainment. Despite the fact that games like Apex Legends and Fortnite have slowly chipped away at its user base, the game remains one of the most-watched titles on Twitch and other streaming platforms.

In order to bring some gamers back, the developer just announced a new hero and map for Overwatch. Jean-Baptiste Augustin (Baptiste) is a "new combat medic who made the shrewd decision to make the world a better place, one bandage or bullet at a time." It's great to see that characters from different walks of life are being represented in the game. You can view his origin story below.

Aside from the new hero, Blizzard revealed a new map a few days ago. Paris is an assault arena where Soldier 76 will feel right at home. It has a lot of places you can surprise enemies from. Hopefully Overwatch will get even more content like this in the future because it keeps players coming back for more.

  • The reference is to his skills, not his nationality. He’s one of the best characters to play on the map because of his weapon.
