Overwatch has a history of introducing quirky characters, but Blizzard Entertainment's latest addition might take the cake. We don't know when the latest hero will join the roster, but we do know that it's a hamster inside a giant ball. That ball is also equipped with machine guns and other weaponry.
Updated July 25, 2018: "Wrecking Ball" is now available to all Overwatch players. It's oddly a fitting name for a deadly hamster.
The character looks absolutely hilarious and seems quite threatening despite its cute nature. If you haven't played Overwatch in a while, this hamster might entice you to return. According to various forums, the hamster is called Hammond and is a laboratory experiment. Blizzard dropped loads of hints about the character when they teased him a few days ago.
It's great to see that Blizzard is continuously supporting Overwatch even after all these years. The developer has set an example for the industry as a whole because even games like Diablo III keep on getting new content. This proves that titles that came out years ago can retain a healthy player base with the right amount of post-launch content.
Overwatch is a first-person shooter on Xbox One and PC 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.
