Two men enter the playable cast of Blizzard's team-based shooter Overwatch today: a pair of Australian "junkers" known as Roadhog and Junkrat. The duo from down under bring a Mad Max-inspired sense of explosive anarchy to the upcoming PC shooter, which you can see for yourself in the reveal video above.
Roadhog, a tank-type character, comes armed with the Scrap Gun, a shotgun-like firearm that fires in a wide spread. It can also launch a shrapnel ball that detonates at a distance to change up his range. He's also got a Chain Hook that seems heavily inspired by Mortal Kombat's Scorpion, in that it yanks his enemies to close range (and evokes a familiar catchphrase). Roadhog can also self-heal and his ultimate ability, Whole Hog, gives his Scrap Gun a big boost.
Junkrat plays as a defense character, according to Blizzard. He's armed with a grenade launcher, concussion mines and steel traps that can immobilize his enemies. His Total Mayhem skill lets him drop a handful of grenades upon death and RIP-Tire, Junkrat's ultimate ability, allows him to launch a motorized tire bomb.
With the addition of Roadhog and Junkrat, the Overwatch roster now features 18 characters. Blizzard plans to hold a beta test for the PC game sometime this fall.
