Overwatch added Hero 30, a healer named Baptiste, in March. Four months after Baptiste's debut, fans are eager to see what will happen to the blizzard hero-based shooter. The details are clear about what Hero 31 will imply for Overwatch, but in the latest update of the game, the director of the game, Jeff Kaplan, teased the new character.
Overwatch The game director, Jeff Kaplan, did not reveal much about Hero 31, but revealed two things about him. On the one hand, Hero 31 will actually be a male character and, on the other hand, it will not be available as fast as the fans hope. We do not know exactly what that means, but it seems very likely that Hero 31 will not be Overwatch until the end of the summer season. We would not be surprised if Hero 31 was not present in the BlizzCon game in November.
Speaking of summer, Kaplan also touched on the seasonal event of the 2019 Summer Games. Since its inception, Kaplan has also been addressing the seasonal event of the 2019 Summer Games. Overwatch The Summer Games were held throughout August, but Kaplan said fans can expect it to start earlier this year. Although unconfirmed, this seems to suggest that 2019 Overwatch Summer games will begin in late July.
Kaplan also said that this year's Summer Games will include new things to try for players. Of course, the standard Lucio Ball will certainly be back, but it is also possible to modify it. Finally, interested Overwatch players will just have to stay tuned to find out more.
More information on 2019 Overwatch Summer Games and Hero 31 should be available in the coming weeks. With regard to Hero 31, there are many theories about the identity of the character, but one of the most popular is that Hero 31 is Mauga, a hero of the tank class associated with the ugly Talon organization. Mauga had already been seen in Baptiste's short story, "What You Left Behind," and given Blizzard's tendency to tease characters before officially revealing them, he seems to be a possible candidate for Hero 31.
Overwatch is available now for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
