After being available in the Public Testing Realm for weeks, Overwatch’s newest character Brigitte is finally available for everyone on all platforms, much to the excitement of fans.  To celebrate this occasion, developer Blizzard has released a brand new trailer focusing on Torbjorn’s daughter.

The trailer, appropriately titled Introducing Brigitte, shows off a ton of gameplay, including her abilities and attacks, as well as a couple of 360 shots from the new hero. You can, as always, check out the minute-long video at the end of the article.

For those that don’t know, Brigitte is technically a Support character, but she shares many characteristics with both the Defense and Tank classes. Her attacks and abilities include Rocket Flail, which is her standard melee attack, Repair Pack, which allows her to heal nearby teammates, Whip Shot, which is her long-range melee attack, Barrier Shield, which can stops incoming attacks for a short amount of time, and Shield Bash, which, as the name suggests, allows you to ram your shield into enemies.

Fans should be able to start playing as Brigitte as soon as they update their games.

Overwatch was released almost two years and is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
