While most of the world has yet to touch Overwatch, that isn’t stopping Blizzard from trying to get people excited. Today we’ve got yet another match featuring the most recently announced character, Soldier: 76.

76 is a vigilante, relentlessly pursuing the truth behind Overwatch’s collapse. He wields a pulse rifle and rockets, and has the ability to sprint into (or out of) combat. His biotic field heals him and nearby allies to keep the team on its feet.

His ultimate ability, the tactical visor, locks 76 onto the nearest threat. If that enemy leaves the field of view, the visor snaps to the next target.

Overwatch will be entering beta later this year. For more, check out our coverage of other heroes:
