New Overwatch Character Orisa

Overwatch won game of the year in 2016 and I can also say this is a game that continue to amaze me. Added to the list of amazement is a brand new character!

Orisa is a Tank-class character whose “gameplay is engineered around protection.” Her weapon is the Fusion Driver, an automatic cannon that deals constant damage but slows her movement speed. The alternate fire is Halt, which launches a charge that she can detonate to slow enemies and pull them towards the explosion. Here is some game play footage

Her abilities include Fortify, which reduces the damage she takes and makes her immune to “action-impairing effects;” and Protective Barrier, a stationary barrier that can be deployed to block enemy attacks. Her Ultimate is Supercharger, which launches a device that buffs damage done by any teammates in its line of sight. The device itself can be destroyed by enemies.

Personally I am more of a healer support type of guy but I like to try my hand at the tank class from time to time. This is a free update. unlike many other games that force you to buy new content with season passes and so forth. So no need to shell out additional dollars for new characters and upgrades. That is why I love Overwatch.
