Blizzard did not go the route of a long ARG that they did with the previous hero release of Sombra, but instead gave a quick series of updates teasing the release of the hero (and the hero’s builder Efi Oladele) culminating in the release of the origin story of hero 24, Orisa.
As the newest tank, Blizzard had this to say about Orisa:
Orisa serves as the central anchor of her team, and defends her teammates from the frontline with a protective barrier. She can attack from long range, fortify her own defenses, launch graviton charges to slow and move enemies, and deploy a Supercharger to boost the damage output of multiple allies at once.
Check out what Jeff Kaplan from the Overwatch team had to say about Orisa below:
If you’re on PC, you can test Orisa right now on the PTR and give your feedback. If you’re playing on console, reports this week note how they want to keep on testing her, so keep the patience up and you should see her live soon enough!
