Brigitte Lindholm is the Next Overwatch Hero

Posted by Staff on Feb 28, 2018  | Comments

Yep, it is! Torbjorn's daughter, Brigitte Lindholm, is the next hero coming to Overwatch. You can check out her origin story and let us know what you think.

"I am Brigitte Lindholm and I will be their shield."

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.

Here's what Jeff Kaplan has to say about her:
