Overwatch’s Latest Character ‘Brigitte’ Revealed Through Official Website

Blizzard has revealed the newest addition to Overwatch. Brigitte is a female character in the support class that will be joining the roster for Overwatch.

You can check out her concept art and story trailer below in addition to all her special moves and abilities.


Brigitte’s melee weapon has an extended range, enabling her to strike multiple enemies with a single swing.


Brigitte throws a Repair Pack that can heal an ally. Any healing over that ally’s maximum health provides them with armor instead.


Brigitte throws her flail a long distance, dealing damage and knocking an enemy away from her.


Brigitte deploys a frontal energy barrier to absorb a limited amount of damage.


Once her Barrier Shield is deployed, Brigitte can dash forward to stun an enemy.


Brigitte moves faster and provides all nearby allies with armor that lasts until it’s removed by damage.

Her story synopsis and other information regarding her background can be read over at the official Blizzard website.

Overwatch is available now for the PS4, Xbox One and PC. The game has also received a patch for the Xbox One X recently that has added 4K support for it.
