Brigitte Lindholm is the 27th hero to grace Overwatch in the most recent release. The character is Torbjorn's daughter who specializes in defensive armor and protective items rather than offensive ones. Her interesting move set and play style should inject even more insanity into the already crazy main game.

Overwatch  is known for it's cast of wacky and inventive characters. May it be the robot ninja/samurai Genji or the genetically enhanced gorilla Winston. Each new character added not only brings a brand new play style to the game but also even more ingenuity and creativity to the already large roster of characters. Brigitte Lindholm is no exception to this.

Brigitte is a mostly tank/support character. A majority of her abilities focus on helping others remain in the fight with added health or armor to use. She also has a large flail weapon that can strike enemies both near and far. Her ultimate ability called Rally allows her to give large amounts of armor to her allies and increases her overall movement speed to help her stay in the battle.

Her backstory is fascinating as well. She's the daughter of Torbjorn and decided to follow in her father's footsteps of engineering. She went more in the direction of defensive armor engineering however; rather than offensive like her father. She also has a friend and godfather in Reinhardt who years prior to the game saved her father's life. Her overall style combines parts of both her father and Reinhardt to create a defensive engineer ready to fight with and protect her allies.

The character is currently available to play on the PTR for PC players. Blizzard will allow her to be played on Xbox One and PS4 once she's been tested and patched. Check out a new comic focused on her and Reinhardt.
