Overwatch announces Orisa release date; here's a behind-the-scenes video


Stay tuned for more details on Orisa as they become available.

It seems more likely that some kind of tie-in title, based in the Overwatch universe could arrive on the Switch instead, however, Blizzard have yet to reveal any plans for the new console. It also noted that Orisa would be heading to live servers on PS4, Xbox One and PC on March 21st. In a couple of skins for the soon-to-be-released tank character Orisa, it looks like Genji has been absorbed into her belly, fighting to escape through the cracks in her chrome-plated armor.

Along with the announcement, Blizzard released a video showing how it came up with Orisa's design. "She's going to serve a really unique role in Overwatch".

As explained by Blizzard, Orisa's main weapon is her rapid-fire Fusion Driver, an automatic gun with good range and accuracy even at a distance-though it comes at a cost, as Orisa's movement slows down while she fires.

"Halt!" allows Orisa to launch a mini-Graviton Surge to pull enemies close together briefly. She's a robot made by a young African inventor, and she can also use a gravity ball to move enemy players and a war drum to boost her allies' damage. Sombra was the game's new offence addition, Ana was unveiled as a support character, and Orisa as a tank, making it possible to play as a new defensive hero next.
