After a couple short weeks of testing, Blizzard is ready to let Brigitte loose in Overwatch. The 27th hero -- a support with a long-range flail and an energy shield -- will join the live game on Tuesday, March 20.

Brigitte can also toss health- and armor-granting repair packs, dash into enemies to stun them, and heal teammates over time when she smacks foes around with her flail. I've seen some cool combo videos out there but, much like Doomfist, I feel like my execution just won't be reliable enough.

If you've had a chance to play as Brigitte on the PTR, how's she shaping up?
