His name is Baptiste, and he's a combat medic fighting for a better world. Baptiste's Biotic Launcher shoots standard bullets for its primary fire, but can lob ally-healing grenades with its alternate fire.

Lastly, Baptiste's ult, "Amplification Matrix", builds a matrix that resembles a window in an area that doubles the damage and healing effects of all ally projectiles (both hitscan and projectiles) that pass through the matrix.

Though origin story trailers for new Overwatch heroes are usually accompanied by another video showcasing the hero's abilities and gameplay mechanics, no such video for Baptiste has been released yet. The newest Overwatch hero is called Jean-Baptiste Augustin and he is a medic armed with some seriously powerful abilities. In it, we learned of a Talon defector named Baptiste who was being hunted down by a team of Talon operatives.

The Red Wings are in rebuilding mode with the third-fewest points in the league this season with 55. The 37-18-8 Sharks are third in the Pacific Division and overall, three points behind Calgary.

Overwatch is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. On Thursday, Blizzard released a letter written in the voice of "Overwatch: enemy Talon squad leader D. Cuerva, which deals with a deserter". Talon plans to track him down and "talk some sense into him", and if that fails, the orders are to kill him. With Regenerative Burst, Baptiste activates an intense surge that heals himself and nearby allies over time. The generator can be destroyed.

Unlike Ana and Brigitte who have rather restricted mobility, Baptiste can jump to higher ground with his passive ability, "Exo Boots", and can attack and heal in mid-air.
