New Overwatch Hero Revealed

Blizzard reveals the 30th hero for Overwatch with a new Baptiste Origin Story, offering background on this combat medic they say is "coming soon" to the multiplayer shooter. The clip doesn't include any gameplay, and the description is brief: "Mobilize alongside the combat medic who made the shrewd decision to make the world a better place, one bandage... or bullet at a time: Baptiste."

Actually sounds semi-intriguing -- if I had five friends interested in playing, I'd probably give it a whirl. No desire to do so with randomly selected teammates...

It’s a very fun game to learn, the first 40 hours are great because it only places you with other newbies.

Quickplay and Arcade games (my favourite is Mystery Heros) do not require mic convo to be fun as hell. Blizzard has an AI driven in-game communication system, some kind of AI I guess, where in your teammates heroes will tell you “Look out behind you” and other tactical insights.

And then there are hero differences, completely different gameplay from one to the next.

Lulz. Shows you how much attention I paid to it. Are there actually significant differences between characters of the same type? There only three types, right? Tank, Damage, and Support.

Yes there are many significant differences.
Of course you can look at them as fulfilling basic needs such as Tank, Damage, and Support but each hero has abilities that change gameplay in a way that are not shared with others of their base type.

For instance Mercy is a support character that can revive dead players, no other support has that. Lucio is a support character that can increase the movement speed of his team, nobody else has that. Moira is a support character who can teleport. Zenyatta can increase all damage by 30% on a targeted enemy. Brigitte can use a shield, grant armor to allies, and stun enemies... all of these abilities exist in some fashion on other heroes, but none within the support role.
Etc. etc.

Extrapolate that to many abilities, many roles, many heroes. There is no duplication yet.

30? Wow, I had no idea there were that many, I thought it was like 6 or 7...

It launched 3 years ago with 21 characters.
They've since added 8 more, this will be the 9th new hero.

Will this hero shoot lootbox ammo, and if an enemy gets hit, they can opt to pay $1 to not take damage? I mean, after all, poor Activision needs more money. WON'T SOMEONE THINK OF BOBBY FUCKSHIT?

The gun looks like a grenade style launcher... I was hoping for a TF2 needler

I remember the TFC needle gun fondly.. There has not been a gun like that since.
