Overwatch Teases New Hero Baptiste With Origin Story Video

Blizzard just released a new video this evening showing off the next hero coming to Overwatch, and his name is Baptiste. We don’t get to see what the character can do just yet, but instead, we do get an origin story that is drowning in sorrow and anger as we learn that he was orphaned during the Omnic War, rose into life as a medic who was also a soldier and eventually joined Talon. Somewhere along the way he saw what the organization was doing and abandoned it to make better choices with his talents. If this means we’re getting a combination of Soldier 76 and Mercy (cough-cough-Ana-cough), so be it. Would be nice to have another fighter who can heal on the go. Enjoy the video!
