In February Blizzard unveiled the new Overwatch hero Baptiste, a combat medic with a tormented past who decided to renounce the villainous Talon to make a positive difference in the world. He’s been playable on the PTR since then, and today Blizzard announced that he’ll move up to the big leagues on March 19.
