Often thought of as something of an Overwatch copycat, Paladins developers Hi-Rez get to throw a bit of shade back at Blizzard for once, with President Stewart Chisam taking to Twitter to call out some apparent similarities between Overwatch's 27th hero Brigitte, and Paladins' own Ash. When entering the fray, Barrier Shield provides personal defense while she attacks enemies with Shield Bash.

Of course, Brigitte also acts like a tank attempting to be the shield for her team. Players are finding that she impacts Winston's mobility especially and some are suggesting that the new meta will be picking three tanks and three supports.

Blizzard revealed the new character last night. Well, she's able to throw fix packs that not only heal an ally but can overheal them in the form of armor.

Notably, she will do this from a support role as she has a number of abilities to provide both healing and extra armour onto her allies. Thought Brigitte uses a flail and not a gun like Ash.

Marvel Studios then tweeted a new poster, similar to the first poster released for the movie but with the new release date. Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo and Stan Lee are the executive producers.

As an armored Support hero, most of Brigitte's abilities revolve around armor.

The video above explains how Brigitte Lindholm fits into the mythology of Overwatch. The radius on this passive is huge, so you're basically always healing allies as you whack people with your Rocket Flail.

As we mentioned earlier, Brigitte is the daughter of Torbjorn. A close friend of the family and Brigitte's godfather, Reinhardt told Brigitte tales of heroes and chivalry as she grew up. Brigitte's is targeted similar to Zenyatta's but heals in one large hit rather than over time and has a cooldown. But more and more, she found her main job was taking care of Reinhardt himself, trying to protect him from his overenthusiasm even as his body was breaking down from years of combat. She became an instant fan favorite, and many hoped that she would eventually find her way into the Overwatch roster. If she heals someone to higher than full health, the difference is given to them in armour - showing that she has still learned some things from her father.
