After making a few teases about its next hero, Overwatch has finally unveiled Brigitte Lindholm, who is now playable in the PC Public Test Realm of the game.

You might recognize the surname Lindholm, as she is the daughter of Torbjörn. In combat, Brigitte's main weapon is a close-range rocket flail. Her Whip Shot ability has a much longer range by swinging the flail forward, knocking back enemies. Like Reinhardt and Orisa, Brigitte can deploy a barrier, but can use the Shield Bash ability to run past it and stun the first enemy she hits.

She can also lay down repair packs to heal her allies. Allies with full health gain additional armor. Her ultimate ability, Rally, creates a "substantial" amount of armor for her allies, and lets her move much more quickly.
