This morning, @PlayOverwatch finally gave us our first look at Overwatch’s Hero 28, and well, you’ll just have to see it to believe it.

So I know what you’re all thinking, “Is that a Hamster?!”, but the real question here is who is that hamster? Well, I think we already know.

Oh yeah, that’s definitely Wrecking Ball

While Hero 28 has yet to receive an official name from the Overwatch team, I’m telling y’all right now that it’s Wrecking Ball, The Champion of Junkertown. While I speculated that they may have been an omnic, I sure wasn’t expecting Wrecking Ball to be a hamster of all things. Regardless, it’s nice to see that the Overwatch team hasn’t lost an ounce of their creativity over the years, and I eagerly await the chance to try him out on PTR.

Like always, I’ll be sure to keep you all updated on any new info regarding Hero 28 (*cough* Wrecking Ball *cough*). I’ll also be sharing some gameplay footage once he’s live on PTR, so keep your eyes peeled for that too! Until then, I’ll be here admiring Wrecking Ball’s fuzzy lil’ face.

I love him
