Orisa Is The Newest Overwatch Hero

After much anticipation Blizzard revealed the next Hero for Overwatch and her name is Orisa. Orisa is a four legged robot that is classified as a tank character. The backstory on Orisa is she was built by the 11 year-old engineering genius Efi Oladele to protect Numbani after Doomfist destroyed the city. Built from the scraps of an OR15 defense robot, Orisa is considered to be a work in progress due to Efi Oladele’s lack of experience in building defense weapons, but Efi’s heart and dedication will guide the robot in protecting the city.

In classic Overwatch fashion, Orisa is available now on the PC in the testing PRT server. If previous heroes are anything to go by, we can expect to see Orisa on consoles in the coming weeks for free like the previous post launch characters. For an extensive look at the new character check out the two videos put out by Blizzard. The first one is a short story introduction and the second one is an extensive breakdown of Orisa’s abilities and how the tank will work with and against the other heroes.
