New Overwatch hero 28 is… a hamster

Overwatch – well that was unexpected

After a bewildering - but adorable - reveal earlier today, Blizzard has fully lifted the veil on Wrecking Ball, who we formerly new as Overwatch hero 28. We've given the little guy a test drive, so if you're curious to know what he can do, we've compiled Wrecking Ball's abilities for easy viewing.

Overwatch introduced players to the newest hero on its roster Thursday, and it's an impossibly cute hamster inside of a powerful (and deadly) circular mech.

Although players will need to wait and see how he affects the meta when he joins live servers and eventually joins competitive play, there is no doubt Wrecking Ball is Blizzard's answer to a Brigitte counter.
