Overwatch reveals new hero Orisa

Overwatch reveals new hero Orisa

Orisa has a drum-like appendage on her back that, when fully charged up, she can throw down onto the ground. In short, Orisa is a highly versatile tank character and a great, more defense-oriented alternative to Reinhardt for lineups looking for a beefy, damage-soaking warrior around which to form. Orisa is the creation of genius girl child Efi Odele, who hails from the city of Numbani.

This is Orisa, a quadrupedal robot with an automatic projectile cannon for an arm, and she is the latest hero to join the Overwatch roster.

Orisa can also deploy a protective barrier to act as a shield.

Orisa's first skill is named Fortify, and once it is activated, the damage she takes is temporarily reduced and action-impairing skills do not affect her. Her alternate fire, Halt!, launches a graviton charge across the map, slowing nearby enemies as it passes, then pulling them toward it when it detonates. Finally, her ult is a supercharger that increases damage for allies within line-of-sight, although the supercharger takes damage and can be destroyed.

Combined with fellow buff based heroes like Lucio and Ana, Orisa looks like the flawless hero to break deadlocks and force your team's position forward.

She also now has two character-specific achievements: "Halt State", which is unlocked by causing 1000 damage with a single use of the "Halt!" ability, and also "Overclocked", which is achieved by amplified 900 damage with a single use of Orisa' Ultimate ability. There have been some glitches getting in our way-currently we can't start our own custom match-but we did manage to play as her in one game against bots and in an all-Orisa match (watch the video above), and have updated this post with our thoughts. With a properly positioned Reinhardt, the team builds and positions around Reinhardt. How long will players wait for the hero to be revealed? Furthermore, Orisa will be able to protect her teammates like a true tank should with a large protective barrier.

Following what felt like a promotional campaign that constantly teased the Doomfist character, game director Jeff Kaplan confirmed in February that the "24 [th character] is not who you think it is". She seems like a formidable, supporting tank who could make Reinhardt less essential to Overwatch's meta. Feel free to let us know in the comments section below.
