A Behind-The-Scenes Look at Overwatch's Orisa

A Behind-The-Scenes Look at Overwatch's Orisa

Orisa, Overwatch's new quadruped tank, has been in the PTR for slightly longer than usual, with Blizzard doing their best to ensure she's balanced before releasing her into the wild.

With a steady stream of updates and new game modes, we won't be surprised to see the next Overwatch hero being a defence-based one.

You can find out more about Orisa by visiting her official hero page right here. In addition, it was revealed that she will be coming off of the PTS and into the live game on March 21st. "She's going to serve a really unique roll in Overwatch". In fact the rest of Orisa's mechanical brothers and sisters were cast aside and forgotten precisely because they failed to protect the city from Doomfist, but Effi believed that with a little bit of tinkering, this mech could become something more.

The scene in Gulf Shores has turned from carnival revelry to an emergency response. News 5 is working to gather more details and will post when there is an update.

Her Fortify ability boosts her personal defense, reducing damage taken and making her unstoppable for a short time. Orisa's Halt move is a "graviton charge" that literally grabs nearby enemies, pulls them in, then drops them to the ground.

Previously Orisa weapon magazine size had decreased from 200 to 150, while the cost for her Ultimate, Supercharged, also increased by 15 per cent.

Orisa is the first tank hero to be added post launch.
