Overwatch’s New Hero Is Brigitte Lindholm

It’s official, the newest hero to be added to the Overwatch roster is indeed Brigitte Lindholm, Blizzard announced on Wednesday.

According to the website, Brigitte is a support player:

“Brigitte 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.”

And here is a breakdown of her abilities:

ROCKET FLAIL

Brigitte’s melee weapon has an extended range, enabling her to strike multiple enemies with a single swing.

REPAIR PACK

Brigitte throws a Repair Pack that can heal an ally. Any healing over that ally’s maximum health provides them with armor instead.

WHIP SHOT

Brigitte throws her flail a long distance, dealing damage and knocking an enemy away from her.

BARRIER SHIELD

Brigitte deploys a frontal energy barrier to absorb a limited amount of damage.

SHIELD BASH

Once her Barrier Shield is deployed, Brigitte can dash forward to stun an enemy.

Brigitte will be able to test out on the public test region (PTR) on Wednesday and will be available sometime between 1 p.m. ET and 2 p.m. ET, for users of the Windows PC version of the game.

Here is the official trailer:

RALLY

Brigitte moves faster and provides all nearby allies with armor that lasts until it’s removed by damage.
