The latest Overwatch Hero, Brigitte, a Tank/Support hybrid hero, is now available to play on the live servers. After weeks of anticipation and tweaking Brigitte on the PTR, she is finally available for all Overwatch players to try in regular play.
Brigitte Lindholm is the daughter of Torbjörn and the goddaughter and squire of Reinhardt. She wields a flail and a shield, protecting her teammates and healing them. Brigitte is voiced by Swedish voice actress Matilda Smedius.
Brigitte already has several known skins, including Overwatch League variants. She will be available in competitive play at the beginning of Season 10.
Being a support hybrid will effect the current meta significantly, and players will have to re-learn how to build a comp around this exciting new hero.
A new hero in Overwatch is the one of the most exciting events in the game, and after the dust settles it seems that Overwatch will be a better game with Brigitte in it.
