The 24th Overwatch Character, Orisa, Arrives Next Week

Orisa is the latest character to be introduced to the Overwatch fray, will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 21st. Orisa is an “anchor tank,” according to Blizzard. This means she’s a massive, damage-absorbing hero that an entire team can rally behind and use as a home base, even in the middle of hectic fights. Reinhardt is an example of an anchor tank.

Orisa is a robot built by an 11-year-old genius, Efi Oladele, who lives in the city of Numbani. Her main gun has two functions, Fusion Driver and Halt. Fusion Driver is a projectile-based, long-range machine gun that causes her to move slower as she’s firing. Halt allows Orisa to shoot out a graviton ball that can suck in all nearby enemies for easy pickings. Think of Halt as a mini version of Zarya‘s ultimate.

Fortify is a pure tank ability, reducing her damage intake by 50 percent and making her immune to attacks that would cause her to move position or fall off a ledge. Her other ability, Protective Barrier, allows her to launch a shield that protects her teammates from enemy fire. Orisa’s ultimate ability is Supercharger. She always carries a drum on her back, and when her ultimate is charged, she can throw it on the ground to provide a 50 percent damage boost to any teammate in the drum’s line of sight, but the enemy team can kill the drum.

Are you guys getting excited for the newest addition to the Overwatch team?
