Blizzard has just revealed via a tweet what seems like the next character to join the ever-increasing Overwatch roster and it turns out it’s a hamster in a mech suit.
While Blizzard has incorporated their fair share of weird and wonderful characters into the Overwatch roster, this has to be the strangest one yet. Not much has been revealed about the furry little mech pilot, all we know is that he’ll be the 28th member of the game’s roster. We are guessing, that he’ll probably take on a tank role, judging by his suit’s armaments.
Intelligent animals are no stranger to the game as one of it’s most iconic characters, Winston, is a hyper-intelligent gorilla. Hopefully, Blizzard will reveal more about fuzzy character and his mech suit in the coming days. I can’t wait to cause devastation on the battlefield as this little guy.
Many have suggested that this could be a prank, but we sincerely hope that this is not the case.
