Overwatch Gameplay - Torbjorn (Abilities & Lore)

Overwatch Gameplay series keeps going with the Defense role Torbjorn.
New franchise from Blizzard Entertainment and we would like to give you all information asap. We are doing a full abilities and lore story series for each of the Heroes in this new Brawler. This particular game is on the WATCHPOINT: GIBRALTAR map (battlefield) in Payload mode.

There are no Beta keys at the moment but you can sign up for Overwatch here :
I would also like to the add that the beta should go live in the Autumn of 2015.

Full Abilities :

Torbjörn fires rivets at long range, or ejects molten metal from his gun in a short, close-range burst.

Torbjörn uses his multipurpose hammer to build, upgrade and repair turrets. In a pinch, it can also be swung as a weapon.

Torbjorn constructs an enemy-tracking autocannon. He can use the scrap he collects from dead enemies and allies to repair or upgrade it, increasing its health and adding a second cannon barrel and a rocket launcher.

Torbjörn deploys an armor upgrade; either he or his allies can pick it up to absorb some damage.

After overheating his personal forge, Torbjorn gains a significant amount of armor and scrap. He also attacks (and builds and repairs turrets) far faster than normal.

Lore / Story :
At its height, Overwatch possessed one of the most advanced armaments on the planet, which could be traced to the workshop of an ingenious engineer named Torbjörn Lindholm.

Before the Omnic Crisis, Torbjorn had gained notoriety for designing weapons systems used by countries around the world. However, his belief that technology must serve a better vision for humanity put him at odds with his employers, who desired to control his weapons using networked computer intelligence.

Torbjörn had a deep mistrust of sentient robotic intelligence, and while many of his peers wrote this off as paranoia, his worst fears were realized when the robot populations of the world turned against their human creators during the Omnic Crisis. Because of his engineering genius, he was recruited to join the original Overwatch strike team, and his many inventions proved integral to ending the crisis. In the years that followed, Overwatch became an international peacekeeping force, and Torbjorn remained a critical resource for all of its technological needs and signature weapons systems.

But in the aftermath of Overwatch's fall, many of Torbjörn's weapons were stolen or stashed away around the world. Feeling responsible for his creations, Torbjorn is determined to stop them from falling into the wrong hands and wreaking havoc on the innocent.
