What a time to be ALIVE! Overwatch has finally revealed their newest hero Orisa, in a way only Blizzard can. Have you been on the Numbani map? You may notice the destruction left behind by Doomfist. You may also notice a tiny OR15 defense bot impaled into the wall. That tiny bot my friends, is the future ORISA, with a little help from Efi Oladele, the 11 year old genius prodigy. Check below for Orisa’s origin story, gameplay from the Overwatch PTR and more details about this new hero from the developer update.
Orisa makes the 24th Overwatch hero and the 11th female character. Quick shout out to Blizzard for filling in the ranks and closing the gap between male and female playable characters.
Orisa is the 6th TANK character in the game. Imagine a mixture of Zarya, Winston, Reinhardt and Bastion, and you’ve got this extremely powerful tank bot. She’s a beast and will prove to be a blast to play! Here’s video of Orisa in action on the PTR!
