Heroes, heroes, heroes.
By now, you’ve probably already seen the new character short for Overwatch focused on Winston, the genius monkey scientist with a jetpack. Looks pretty cool, yeah? Well, it got even cooler at the end, where he decides to call in other agents scattered all over the world. That’s when it gets interesting.
Viewers who paid attention will note about 15 faces that pop up on screen, their names and abilities not listed on screen. The only character fans will recognize is Tracer, the British woman who graces the game’s box art. Everyone else hasn’t been shown or mentioned before. Luckily, Twitter user Neracide was able to compile all the pictures together.

Currently, Overwatch’s character count is at 21. It’s possible that they haven’t revealed all the characters at launch yet, or they could be DLC heroes coming later down the line. Blizzard’s kept mum on the subject right now, but it wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility for new heroes to join the game. Although you have to wonder, if this is what the heroes could look like…what about the villains?
Overwatch comes to PS4, Xbox One, and PC on May 24.
