Overwatch developer Blizzard has seemingly teased the looks of a model new character.
Judging by a mysterious new publish on the Overwatch Twitter web page, hero 27 might be any individual named Emre Sarioglu.
The rumours started with Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan responding to followers on the sport’s official boards.
In a publish titled ‘Can we’ve got a hero 27 trace?’, Kaplan mentioned:” Okay. Incoming. Brace for it…”
This was adopted by a prolonged Twitter tease wherein the aforementioned Emre Sarioglu was named alongside some acquainted characters.
It is all a part of an after motion report for one thing referred to as Operation “WHITE DOME”.
“Strike group underneath the command of myself, CAPTAIN ANA AMARI, was deployed to the outskirts of Istanbul, Turkey to take care of a remaining pocket of omnic resistance,” the publish reads.
“Personnel included Lieutenant Reinhardt Wilhelm, Chief Engineer Torbjorn Lindholm, and Non-public First Class Emre Sarioglu.”
In response to the publish, Torbjorn obtained severe accidents, and was saved by Reinhardt.
“After routine insertion, the group was ambushed, taking heavy hearth from the entrenched omnics,” the publish continues.
“Whereas the group was in a position to overcome and neutralise all hostile combatants with out casualties, the battle resulted in severe accidents to Lindholm and lesser damage to Lt. Wilhelm.
“Had it not been for Lt. Wilhelm’s well timed intervention, it’s doubtless that Lindholm would have been killed. Attributable to conspicuous bravery on the a part of Lt. Wilhelm, I’m suggesting a commendation for his actions.”
Overwatch followers are already speculating on the identification of the brand new hero, and whether or not or not it is Emre Sarioglu.
Others imagine it might be Hammond (see the gallery above for extra on Hammond), and that the escaped gorilla was liable for Torbjorn’s accidents.
Both method, we should always discover out quickly. Possibly in time for the Rebellion occasion.
