Combat medic Jean-Baptiste Augustin is now available in Overwatch on all platforms as the game’s 30th hero.
Baptiste has access to a three-round-burst Biotic Launcher that both damages and heals, a Regenerative Burst that heals him and nearby allies, an Immortality Field that prevents allies from dying, and an Exo Boots passive that lets him jump higher when crouched. In addition to these abilities, Baptiste has an ultimate ability called Amplification Matrix, which when used creates a matrix that doubles the damage and healing of projectiles that pass through it.
As well as adding a new character, today’s update reduces the heal of Anna’s Nano Boost, reduces the cooldown of Doomfist’s Rising Uppercut and Seismic Slam, increases the detection radius of Hanzo’s Sonic Arrow, increases the damage of Soldier 76’s rifle, and more.
Other changes include adjustments to armor damage, changes to knockbacks to make them more consistent, and the addition of new sounds. Read the full patch notes here.
Overwatch is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
