Announced a few weeks ago and dropped into the PTR, Overwatch’s latest hero has now been released into the game for everyone on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Brigitte is the daughter of Torbjörn Lindholm and squire to Reinhardt, and slots into the Overwatch line up as a mixture of support and tank. She can support teammates with thrown repair packs and automatic healing while she deals damage with her flail, which can be swung around her or used as a stunning Whip Shot at range. However, she can also lead the line with the Barrier Shied a smaller, personal sized version of Reinhardt’s shield and the Shield Bash attack. Her ultimate ability, Rally, boosts speed and lends armour to nearby allies.
