See How Overwatch's Orisa Came to Be and When She's Going Live

Orisa in development at BlizzardBlizzard

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.

Blizzard has today served up some details and a launch date for Orisa, the 24th hero coming to Overwatch next week.

Orisa enters live on March 21.

Of course, Orisa has been available on the public test realm over the past few weeks.

According to the video, Orisa "evolves and pushes the boundaries of what the Overwatch Universe could be".

I'm officially the conspiracy theorist on this one, but I've seen enough sci-fi movies to know that handing over your security to the whims of an all-powerful A.I.is seldom a good idea.

Orisa's automatic projectile cannon delivers sustained damage, but slows her movement while she fires it. Her unique place in Overwatch makes her the youngest not only in gameplay but in the game's team of heroes.

Halt: Orisa launches a graviton charge which she can detonate, slowing nearby enemies and pulling them towards the explosion.

Fortify is a pure tank ability, reducing Orisa's damage intake by 50 percent and making her immune to attacks that would cause her to move position or fall off a ledge.

"Orisa throws out a stationary barrier that can protect her and her allies from enemy fire".
