Overwatch’s next hero has been revealed. The new member of the cast is Hammond, who has been teased in the game’s Horizon Lunar Colony map. Hammond is a hamster that rides around inside of a mech, which can move around by rearranging its parts into a ball. In the game, he is known as Wrecking Ball.


On Twitter, a teaser trailer revealing Hammond was shared.


Very little is known about the character just yet. The teaser shows him moving via rolling, when his mech is in the form of a ball. When he is stationary, two guns pop out of either side that can be fired. We also know that he and Winston were both specimens at the Horizon Lunar Colony, and both escaped.



Overwatch is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Wrecking Ball is now available on the Public Testing Realm on PCs.
