Well, turns out that I was wrong. All that teasing was in fact about hero numero 27 joining the Overwatch ranks - daughter Torbjörn Lindholm, Brigitte. Who also happens to be a mechanical engineer specialising in armour and defense. Click through for a breakdown of her skills and abilities.

Okay so Brigitte, as a new Support Hero, can throw Repair Packs down to heal teammates. Plus, her Flail weapon also has the ability to heal when damaging foes. Throw in a personal Barrier Shield (think mini-Reinhardt) and an ultimate that gives allies long-lasting armour Brigitte sound like quite the addition to the Overwatch lineup.



Her abilities in full:
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 armour 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.
Inspire – When Brigitte hits enemies with her flail, she also heals nearby allies over time.
Rally – Brigitte moves faster and provides all nearby allies with armour that lasts until it’s removed by damage.


Brigitte is also now live on the PTR, giving everyone a chance to check her out before going live in the near future.
