Torbjörn's Daughter, Brigitte, Is Overwatch's First New Hero of 2018

Paladins president Stewart Chisam has raised an eyebrow at Overwatch's newly unveiled hero Brigitte Lindholm, because she looks more than a little like his game's hero Ash.

Brigitte wields an extendable flail which can strike enemies up to five meters away and she can hit multiple enemies with each swing. Brigitte. Her "Origin Story" has been embedded above, but players will be more interested in learning that she's a Support specialist with a variety of melee attacks, as well as healing abilities and a portable shield. Not only are both women clad in a kind of knightly armour - although Brigitte has her distinctive rocket flail, and not a gun like Ash - their abilities sound similar. If she heals someone to higher than full health, the difference is given to them in armour - showing that she has still learned some things from her father. This means that players won't have to wait for another player to call out, "My Ultimate is Ready!" but will have a percentage below their name and character when looking at the team composition. Named Brigitte Lindholm, she's the daughter of Torbjörn as well as Reinhardt's goddaughter and squire. Having watched her father forge weapons all her life, the new hero's goal is to fix heroes' armor during battle.

Reinhardt began to train Brigitte in combat and eventually, she chose to join him on the battlefield in order to protect him and "to make the world a better place, one battle at a time". On top of that, she can use that shield to bash any enemies and temporarily stun them. Players are finding that she impacts Winston's mobility especially and some are suggesting that the new meta will be picking three tanks and three supports.

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

Passive - Inspire - Striking enemies with your flail heals nearby allies. I love supporting and protecting my allies and Brigitte can do both and also take care of herself.

All of these abilities are now live on the Overwatch PTR.
