Orisa Joins Overwatch Lineup

Following their usual cryptic teasers, Blizzard announced today their latest addition to Overwatch’s selection of heroes: Orisa, a modded out Omnic, complete with quadruped chassis and minigun. Game director Jeff Kaplan provides some insight into her designing, showing her off as sort of a mix between Bastion, Reinhardt, and Zarya. Orisa’s¬†primary weapon can slow enemies, but slows herself down when in use, and her fortify ability allows her to shrug off crowd-control effects on command. She also serves as a party buffer with her ultimate, which drops a stationary generator-like object that provides a passive buff to allies within its radius. Orisa is currently available for play on the PTR.
