The big lore dump for Overwatch yesterday did not come from nowhere. Hot on the heels of that article connecting the mysterious Soldier: 76 to the supposed demise of strike commander Jack Morrison, a new hero has been added to the game’s hero roster. It’s the Soldier himself, and while playing him does not include a Reveal Predicted Face Behind Mask ability, he still brings a new skillset to the table.
Soldier: 76 is classified as an offense hero, but his abilities give him a variety of functions. He can sprint in and out of danger, fire his primary weapon in short bursts or unleash a quick rocket salvo, and drop a healing field for himself and his allies. For his ultimate ability, he locks on to the nearest target and swaps between targets as he takes them down with precision. Check out the full ability preview just below.
