Overwatch’s New Hero Is Brigitte Lindholm

Published

on

It’s official, the newest hero to be added to the Overwatch roster is indeed Brigitte Lindholm, Blizzard announced on Wednesday.

According to the website, Brigitte is a support player:

“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 is a breakdown of her abilities:

ROCKET FLAIL

Brigitte’s melee weapon has an extended range, enabling her to strike multiple enemies with a single swing.

REPAIR PACK

Brigitte throws a Repair Pack that can heal an ally. Any healing over that ally’s maximum health provides them with armor instead.

WHIP SHOT

Brigitte throws her flail a long distance, dealing damage and knocking an enemy away from her.

BARRIER SHIELD

Brigitte deploys a frontal energy barrier to absorb a limited amount of damage.

SHIELD BASH

Once her Barrier Shield is deployed, Brigitte can dash forward to stun an enemy.

Brigitte will be able to test out on the public test region (PTR) on Wednesday and will be available sometime between 1 p.m. ET and 2 p.m. ET, for users of the Windows PC version of the game.

Here is the official trailer:

RALLY

Brigitte moves faster and provides all nearby allies with armor that lasts until it’s removed by damage.

EA Still Focusing on Anthem

Published

on

The game is a colossal bust, mainly due to both BioWare and EA who botched everything after launch, but EA is still promising to focus on Anthem.

While the general concept and gameplay mechanics of Anthem was truly awesome, everything else was a dud thanks to the companies who failed their fans, in so many ways, so much.

“We brought together these two groups of players who were making this emotional value calculation on two different vectors,” EA CEO Andrew Wilson said, according to GameDaily. “One was traditional BioWare story-driven content, and the other was this action-adventure type content. About the 30 or 40 hour mark they really had to come together and start working in on the elder game. At that point everyone kind of went, ‘Oh, hang a minute.’ Now the calculation is off. It’s off because I’ve got a friend who sits in this other category of player.”

With Anthem seemingly dwindling away any interest, EA and BioWare seem committed to a long-term plan.

“IP lives for generations, and runs in these seven to ten year cycles” Wilson said.

“So, if I think about Anthem on a seven to ten-year cycle, it may not have had the start that many of us wanted, including our players. I feel like that team is really going to get there with something special and something great, because they’ve demonstrated that they can.”

For fans eagerly awaiting the arrival of Borderlands 3, you’ll be happy to know that the game will have quite the grind associated with the main story.

Borderlands 3 creative director Paul Sage revealed that it will take over 30 hours to complete the story mode, making the game quite massive.

“I’d still say we were very ambitious,” Sage said, during an interview with GamesBeat.

“My tech team would say we were really ambitious sometimes. [laughs] There’s so much to the game. We go to these different worlds. The length of the game being 35 hours, if you just go through the main story — that’s not including doing too many side missions. I think there was a lot of ambition right at the beginning.”
