Overwatch has a new hero: Orisa, a huge spider robot

Along with Orisa's reveal, Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan went in-depth into Orisa's origin story and how she and her abilities fit into the Overwatch universe in a developer update video below. Doomfist is the powerful villain, yet Orisa is built to battle, which means Orisa and Doomfist are connected. Efi was present at Numbani airport when it was attacked by very strong assailant. While most citizens of Numbani gave up on their Omnic protectors, Efi did not. "Fortunately, between Efi's willingness to make the necessary modifications and Orisa's adaptive artificial intelligence, both robot and creator have always been able to set things right".

"My name is Orisa, I will keep you safe".

Orisa will be a tank character.

As for Orisa's capabilities, its main weapon is called the Fusion Driver, which is an automatic cannon that deals consistent damage, GameSpot reports.

Orisa's primary weapon is called a Fusion Driver, and it's a high rate-of-fire gun that holds 200 rounds and can headshot for double damage.

Orisa is a Tank-class character whose "gameplay is engineered around protection".

Yet another barrier! It looks like a large, stationary version of Reinhardt's shield-somewhat like a combination between Symmetra's projected Photon Barrier and Winston's Barrier Projector. Although it has much less health than Barrier Field (900 versus 2000) the mobility it affords, I find, is much more useful. Finally, her ult is a supercharger that increases damage for allies within line-of-sight, although the supercharger takes damage and can be destroyed.

Orisa debuts on the Public Test Realm, with a worldwide release expected within the next few weeks. "And what we mean by that is that Reinhardt nearly anchors the entire team".

The new "Overwatch" hero also two defense moves namely "Fortify" and the "Protective Barrier".

Orisa sounds like an interesting addition to the Overwatch team, and one that will add some more diversity to the selection of tanks on offer.

What do you think about Orisa and her place in the Overwatch lore?

Kaplan also shared his hopes that Orisa would fulfill fan expectations of a "visually challenging" female character.
