The 24th hero and sixth tank to join the Overwatch has been revealed. Orisa is a four legged robot designed to buff and protect teammates.
This is the first hero to be released for the game with little to no backstory whatsoever. Built from the scraps of the cityâ€™s decommissioned OR15 defense bots by Efi an 11 year old engineer from Numbani, Orisa is still learning how to optimally perform her function. But what she lacks in experience, she makes up for in dedication to keeping her city and her creator harm.
Orisaâ€™s abilities include:
- Fusion Driver â€” A rapid-fire automatic gun that touts good range and accuracy even at a distance
- Protective Barrier â€” Throw a device that creates a stationary shield, perfect for intercepting projectiles and protecting teammates
- Supercharger â€” Orisaâ€™s ultimate ability beams a buff to allies within range, increasing the damage they can inflict on the opposing team
You can try out Orisa now on PC through the PTR servers, though to play her in a competitive playground or on console you’ll have to wait for her to hit the live servers. For more on Orisa you can check out her origin story below.
