Brigitte revealed as Overwatch's latest hero

In the latest patch notes for the games Public Test Realm patch notes, Blizzard has officially listed Brigitte as a support class hero.

With a face like Belle from Beauty and the Beast and her combo tank/healer abilities, Brigette is already looking like a huge fan favorite. Her bio and overview have also been put up on the game's official website. Along with her ability to heal nearby friendly players, Brigitte can also throw down Repair Packs for her teammates to receive healing from. It deals 35 damage per hit.

Tweets from the Overwatch account earlier this week debuted Brigitte's shield and hammer, Slaga - which means flail in Swedish. With her shield deployed, she can execute Shield Bash to "lunge forward and stun the first enemy in her path".

Brigitte grew up with Reinhardt as her godfather and Torbjörn for a father, a unique childhood to be sure. Any healing over that ally's maximum health provides them with armour instead.

Rally: Her ultimate ability increases her movement speed while providing armor to nearby allies. This is most useful when trying to rush out of a tricky situation, allowing your teammates to sprint away from an enemy attack in unison.

Now, let's welcome the addition of the #Hero. Her primary weapon is her heavy-hitting Rocket Flail that she swings in a wide arc in front of her to smash multiple enemies at once.

Brigitte might not think it is Reinhardt's time to fight anymore, but we're all certainly ready for it to be hers.

Brigitte takes the role of a support hero, with abilities similar to those of her father figures Torbjörn and Reinhardt. "Why would you go back to them?" It's not the most dignified of deaths, but hey, whatever works. She is not the only child of Torbjorn, but one of the most skilled surely.

We've had a good idea that the engineer's apprentice would be the newest hero, but it's nice to see theories turn into reality. No matter which hero or playstyle they prefer, players will be able to team up and accomplish the incredible in Overwatch. Scroll down for a bio and rundown of Brigitte's abilities. Her shield is pretty easy to break through if she's overwhelmed, and while her Whip Shot can give her some distance between a single opponent, if she is swarmed then there's not a great deal she can do to escape. Is she ideal for your style of play? She's available to play via the PTR right now, and specializes in armor and defense.

"Everyone expected that Brigitte would continue her apprenticeship and follow in her father's footsteps". Could the new hero be Brigette?
