A new support character named Brigitte was recently revealed for Overwatch. The youngest daughter of a Swedish weapons designer, this character specializes in armor and can throw repair packs on her teammates. Her weapon of choice is a Flail which automatically heals nearby allies after inflicting damage to her enemies. She can also deploy an energy barrier shield that can absorb a limited amount of damage. Her ultimate ability called Rally can provide a long-lasting armor to her allies while providing her with a short-term speed boost.
Brigette is currently available for testing in the game's PTR for the PC. Learn more about this new character through the game's latest Developer Update video below and stay tuned for more gaming news and updates.
