After a few days of teasing, we’ve finally seen our first glimpse of the new Hero coming to Overwatch, and it’s as glorious as we all hoped it would be.

Revealed today on the official Overwatch Twitter page, the new Hero is, well, he’s a Hamster in a giant ball. That has machine guns mounted on it. Oh Overwatch, never change.

This chubby little face of destruction is Wrecking Ball, a new tank Hero added to the game who rolls around in his giant armour clad mech. Droideka memes commence. He comes equipped with machine guns and a mine field for an ultimate, making Wrecking Ball a monster for mobile area denial.

You can play Wrecking Ball now, within the Overwatch PTR. Chances are he’ll hit the full game in the coming weeks.

What do you think of Hero 28? Excited? Bored stiff? let us know in the comments!
