Meet Overwatch Hero #30 - Jean-Baptiste Augustin, a Gun-Toting Combat Medic
Blizzard has introduced the thirtieth hero coming to Overwatch. Jean-Baptiste Augustin is the first support character since the introduction of Brigitte about a year ago. Like Brigitte, Baptiste can deal almost as much damage as he can heal thanks to the use of gadgets. He is described as a combat medic "who made the shrewd decision to make the world a better place, on bandage...or bullet at a time". Fans can meet Baptiste in his new Origin story trailer.
The tweet above was the first hint about Baptiste that also leads to a lore "letter" from Talon leadership that tasks a group with hunting down Baptiste to either return him to Talon or put him "in a shallow island grave".
At the moment, there is no news when Baptiste will be released on PTR or into the full game, but we'll be keeping an eye out.
