Overwatch trailer introduces Torbjörn

I'm pretty sure that means "gate bear".


Overwatch boasts a cast of colourful characters, somewhat like stablemate Heroes of the Storm. The difference is that Overwatch's characters are all original, even if several of them bear a marked resemblance to other Blizzard faces.

Today's example is Torbjörn, a weapon desgienr who plays a defensive role in-game. The footage below shows a complete Playload match played on the Gibraltar map.

You can learn more about the dwarven (?) engineer on his character hub page.

Earlier this week Blizzard introduced us to Reaper, a deadly dealer of deadly death with a side of deaths and topped with death and definitely not a Diablo character.
