Blizzard Entertainment has released a cryptic teaser for its upcoming PC shooter Overwatch.

Released on Twitter is the fake magazine cover, showing a silhouette of an unspecified character.

Given the language featured on the cover ("Lifting Legend," "Bionic-Grade Boot Camp Body") it appears that Blizzard is teasing a character with supernatural strength.

The teaser also includes a QR code. When scanned, it says "Together we are strong," furthering the strength theme of the page.

What does it all mean? It sounds like Blizzard is gearing up to announce the latest hero for Overwatch. A total of twelve characters for the game have been revealed so far.

Blizzard will be talking more about Overwatch during PAX East next weekend in Boston. GameSpot will report live from the show all weekend long.

Announced during Blizzcon in November, Overwatch is a first-person shooter that bears some resemblance to Valve's Team Fortress 2. The game represents Blizzard's first new franchise in seventeen years.

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.
