After months of waiting, Blizzard has now added a new Support hero in Brigitte Lindholm. She’s now live, and players can now choose to play as her for the game’s PC, Xbox ONE, and PlayStation 4 versions.

The daughter of weapons designer, Torbjörn Lindholm, Brigitte is the newest hero to join the Overwatch team. Specializing in armor and defense, 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.

Hero Showcase – Call To Arms Invitational

To showcase what Brigitte can do in the hands of skilled players, Blizzard has invited Overwatch competitive teams from around South-East Asia to pit their best Brigitte team compositions against each other! Come watch as 6 teams from Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and Philippines face off in this invitational tournament which will be streamed live on 24 March 2018 from 1 – 4pm over at www.twitch.tv/afiz 

Community Challenge

They’re also challenging players to try Brigitte out and win themselves some Overwatch swag in the process! From 22 March to 1 April 2018, three challenges will be issued and players need only send in their screenshot of their achievements for the following categories: Healing Done, Damage Blocked and Games Won. A total of USD150 worth of Overwatch swag will be given away to the top three highest scorers in each category. More details will be announced at a later date.
