The Overwatch team today announced the debut of a new tank hero, Orisa.
Specially outfitted for maximum fortification, Orisa is a four-legged robot designed by a brilliant 11-year-old engineer named Efi Oladele to keep the peace in Numbani.
Built from the scraps of the city’s decommissioned OR15 defense bots, Orisa is still learning how to optimally perform her function. What she lacks in experience, she makes up for in her steadfast dedication to keeping her city—and her creator—safe from harm.Blizzard
Orisa serves as the central anchor of her team, and defends her teammates from the frontline with a protective barrier. She can attack from long range, fortify her own defenses, launch graviton charges to slow and move enemies, and deploy a Supercharger to boost the damage output of multiple allies at once.
FUSION DRIVER: Orisa’s automatic projectile cannon delivers sustained damage, but slows her movement while she fires it.
FORTIFY: Orisa temporarily reduces damage she takes, and cannot be affected by action-impairing effects.
PROTECTIVE BARRIER: Orisa throws out a stationary barrier that can protect her and her allies from enemy fire.
SUPERCHARGER: Orisa deploys a device to increase damage inflicted by allies within her line of sight.
Orisa is available for play right now on Overwatch’s PTR!
