Overwatch appears to be teasing a new support hero

Mercenary Medicine

It looks like another hero is on their way to Blizzard's multiplayer shooter Overwatch. In typical OW fashion, Blizzard are teasing the new character's arrival via some mysterious lore, that has suddenly turned up on the game's official Twitter.

The Twitter link leads to be a mission report from evil organisation Talon, which references one "Jean-Baptiste Augustine," a French medic who has gone rogue and is now on the run. From this report, we can gather that Augustine is formidable in combat, with a keen, sharp-shooting eye, as well as being a specialist in field treatment.

Put those two qualities together, and it sounds like a sniper medic which, of course, Overwatch already has in the form of Ana Amari. The most recent addition to the colourful crew, Ashe, also has sniper capabilities, so I think we can rule out long-range fire. Augustine is also noted as having "the devil's luck," which could be a figure of speech, or could hint to some adept skill they possess to help them dodge death. No doubt we'll see more of Jean-Baptiste in the near future, as Overwatch prepares to add its new hero to the fold.

Overwatch is available now on PS4, PC and Xbox One.
