Overwatch‘s 27th hero finally showed up. As we all know, over the past week, Overwatch‘s official web site has shown that all Overwatch players around the world thought that their new hero would be a Turkish named Emre. But thanks to the subsequent leak, we learned that her next hero was Brigitte. Last night the official announcement was made and Brigitte Lindholm was introduced by Jeff Kaplan, director of Overwatch.
Overwatch’s new hero Brigitte
Brigitte, the daughter of Torbjörn, who is also an Overwatch hero, has a support-tank role that constantly buffs his teammates. The passive character “Inspire” is able to give his teammates health, leaving his armor and repair kit like his father Torbjörn. It is certain that Brigitte will bring a new breath to Overwatch, reminiscent of the Crusader class in Diablo 3 with his play. Overwatch was a long overdue player who wanted heroes to be added to the game in different metaphors on forums. Brigitte, with Support-Tank, seems to be among these heroes. Below you can watch the video about the character’s story and Jeff Kaplan’s developer update. It’s not clear when Brigitte will be added to the game, but you can try it in the PTR.
