Blizzard has released a new gameplay trailer for its team-based shooter Overwatch that shows the hammer-wielding adventurer Reinhardt in action.

“Reinhardt charges hammer-first into battle in this complete, unedited match from an early version of Overwatch, captured in 60fps on PC,” the video’s description reads. “Here, Reinhardt is on the defense in King’s Row, a Point Capture/Payload hybrid map situated in the heart of England.”

Reinhardt, full name Reinhardt Wilhelm, has access to the abilities Rocket Hammer, which deals damage in a wide arc; Shield that projects forward-facing energy shield that absorbs damage and protects anyone behind it; and Charge, which sees Reinhardt charge in a straight line, grabbing hold of enemies. Finally, his Ultimate Ability, Earthshatter, sees Reinhardt forcefully slamming his rocket hammer into the ground, knocking down and damaging all enemies in front of him.

Overwatch is scheduled to enter closed beta testing this fall.
