Brigitte arrives on Overwatch PTR as 27th hero

Chris is the captain of the good ship AllGamers, which would explain everything you're seeing here. As well as digging out news and directing all hands to the feature riggings, Chris also finds time to consume all things speedrun and can even understand 70% of what a "half A-press" is.

Previously, Chris was a mercenary for many of the net's biggest game sites, helping their readers understand the convoluted world of digital sports. This culminated in a nomination for esports journalist of the year, and an intense love for the sound of gold dropping out of a dead lane creep.

You can get in touch with Chris to talk about work or the $6million Echo Slam by emailing or finding him on Twitter. Which is a lot easier now that there's a link here.

We. Want. Jetpack. Cat.

Brigitte has been released onto Overwatch's PTR as part of her run up to becoming the game's 27th hero. We were damn sure it was going to be Jetpack Cat as well.

Brigitte is a support character with a smaller version of Reinhardt's shield, a flail that passively heals nearby allies when you hit enemies, a shield bash stun similar to McCree's flashbang, a single-target heal and wow, there's a lot going on here. Here's her official ability rundown from the Overwatch Brigitte hero site:

Brigitte specializes in armor. 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.

And here's the developer update explaining more about her:
