Overwatch 2 Lifeweaver Introduced

Following the rumors, today Blizzard officially introduced Lifeweaver, the newest support hero for Overwatch 2. Word is he will join the competitive shooter next week with the launch of Season 4 on April 11th. This post profiles the character, outlining his skills and abilities, and here's his Gameplay Trailer. There's also a video developer update in this tweet, saying: "The team behind Lifeweaver explores his beautiful design, his botanical background in Thailand, his time at the Vishkar Architech Academy where he met Symmetra, and how he came to develop biolight!" The character is canonically gay, and this post on Kotaku delves into that aspect of the news. Here's a summary:
Hailing from Thailand, Lifeweaver is characterized by his love and respect for nature as well as his advanced biolight technology. This groundbreaking technology is woven throughout his abilities, and it plays a pivotal role in the healing and utility aspects of his kit.

Lifeweaver has a unique playstyle that introduces a few new mechanics into the game, so let’s take a walk through his kit and how he was developed. His final look is the result of a culmination of many different teams, including various concept art, hero design, and narrative. One of these pieces features an older physician who drew healing energy into his hands and blasted it into his allies, a bit like Moira’s Coalescence.

Remember when games use to be about the gameplay?

Yeah, it's so much better now that they're about great gameplay and they give more people an opportunity to feel included. Progress!

Not necessarily. While it is true that feeling included often involves a sense of recognition and validation of one's identity, it is possible to feel included without necessarily representing one's own identity in a specific way. For example, one might feel included in a community or social group based on shared values or interests, regardless of whether their identity is explicitly represented within that group.

Which is the beauty of the words "an opportunity"—it's about adding a new way for someone to feel included, and not necessarily about establishing something that didn't exist in other ways before. So sure, while it's possible that all kinds of people might have found ways to feel included previously; this character is a good thing because it adds to the list of ways for people to feel included while also delivering what looks like an awesome gameplay experience that seems consistent with the vision for the game from the beginning.
