A new tank class hero, Orisa's role involves being an anchor for her team, defending teammates on the frontline with a protective barrier.

Blizzard just announced that Orisa would be released next week. Today, Blizzard revealed that she would be coming full time next Tuesday the 21st, same day as Mass Effect: Andromeda.

Orisa is an upcoming tank hero in Overwatch and she has quite a few tricks up her sleeve.

Orisa most-defining characteristic is her shield, a stationary, 900-health barrier that she can place at range, but she can also pack a punch with her other abilities.

Previously Orisa weapon magazine size had decreased from 200 to 150, while the cost for her Ultimate, Supercharged, also increased by 15 per cent.
