Overwatch’s newest support hero, Brigitte, will be made available to all players next week.

Currently available on the Overwatch Public Test Region, Brigitte will be released on the live servers next week come March 20.

Brigitte Lindholm, the youngest daughter of Torbjorn, was announced as the 27th playable hero for Overwatch in late February.

Her abilities in Overwatch include Rocket Flail, Barrier Shield, Repair Pack, Whip Shot, Shield Bash, and Rally.

If you are interested in how the support/tank hybrid was brought to life, lead character artist Ben Zhang discusses her creation in the video below.
