Overwatch’s Newest Hero is a Hamster…And it’s Absolutely Adorable

After a few days of teasing, Blizzard has officially announced the next character that will be coming to Overwatch...and it's an adorable hamster.

Last week, Blizzard began teasing some new content for Overwatch on their Twitter account, but at the time, we had no idea what it was, with many people speculating that it was a new map. As it turns out, those people were wrong, and Blizzard has officially announced what it was teasing, and it’s an adorable brand new character.

As you can see in the official video reveal below, the next character is a hamster in a giant rolling mech. Many fans are speculating that this is the long-rumored character Hammond, although this has not been confirmed or denied by the developer. As of the time of this writing, we have no idea how the character will play, although he will more than likely be added to the PTR any day now, so we won’t have to wait long to find out.

Overwatch was released a couple of years ago and is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC. If you want to pick up the game on Amazon, you can do so by clicking here.
