Brigitte Joins The Overwatch Gang On March 20th
Brigitte, the newest hero to join the Overwatch cast, will be bringing her battle prowess to the fray on March 20th according to a recent Twitter post. Brigitte is Torbjorn’s daughter and Reinhardt's student. She is a support tank who can heal allies and give them a much-needed armor boost when in a pinch.
“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.”
Check out the official Twitter post below along with a video showing Brigitte's journey from concept to reality. We’ve also included Brigitte's origin story after that just in case you missed it before.
It takes a village to raise (and create) a hero!
