Overwatch developer Blizzard is introducing two new characters to the fold, increasing the already colorful roster of combatants in the studio’s upcoming ‘pick-up-and-play’ PC shooter.

McCree, heavily inspired by actor Clint Eastwood and his role in iconic Western films, is deadly in the hands of any sharpshooter. With his futuristic, high-powered magnum, his abilities favor accuracy and agility with equipment that allows him to quickly stun enemies for a brief period.

Meanwhile, don’t let Zarya’s brutish tank-like figure deceive you. She can be a friendly and valuable asset to her team with the ability to shield teammates and stun large groups of enemies.

YouTube personality LevelCapGaming offers a good look at both new characters in his latest video, including an overview of each characters’ abilities. Viewers also get a glimpse of the new map, Watchpoint Gibraltar. Have a look:
