Overwatch’s newest hero has a debut date. People will be able to play as Wrecking Ball, the hamster named Hammond in a mech, starting July 24, 2018. He is immediately available in the PC version’s Public Test Realm.


The announcement was made with a short video clip on Twitter.


Wrecking Ball is Overwatch’s latest Tank type hero. His primary weapons are Quad Cannons, with a Grappling Claw as secondary fire. If he is in Quadraped mode, using Grappling Claw will start Roll. Roll is also one of his abilities and allows him to… well… roll around the field. His other abilities are an Adaptive Shield move that gives him barriers and takes him from Roll to Quadraped mode and a Piledriver attack. His ultimate is Minefield, which scatters 15 proximity mines around him.


Overwatch is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
