Late last week Blizzard teased Overwatch fans with yet another piece of lore, as a letter was posted detailing a character called Baptiste, and now we have a brand new Origins trailer dedicated to the mysterious "combat medic".

You can see this trailer down below, which shows off the new hero coming soon. We get to see how he came from hardship and the mistakes he made along the way, before committing to "make a difference".

"I know better than to underestimate Baptiste. I helped train him myself, and he was one of our best," the letter reads. "I've never known a medic to be such a good shot, and his adaptability to new situations is a rare talent. All of us have seen our fair share of conflict, but Baptiste was built to survive. I swear he has the Devil's own luck."

Elsewhere in Overwatch news Season 14 of competitive play ends on Thursday at 16:00 PST (00:00 March 1 when it comes to GMT), and we've just been given a new Assault map in Paris to spice up our life too.

Is Baptiste looking promising?
