New Tanky Orissa to Go Live on March 21st- Overwatch

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.

Along with the announcement, Blizzard released a video showing how it came up with Orisa's design.

Orisa's automatic projectile cannon delivers sustained damage, but slows her movement while she fires it.

According to research by European Women on Boards (EWoB), women occupy less than a quarter of all United Kingdom board positions. A man who works nearby said, "I have two daughters and I thought it was pretty impressive that they have this up here".

I might go back and play more Overwatch at some point.

Fortify: Orisa temporarily reduces damage she takes, and can not be affected by action-impairing effects.

Her alternate fire, Halt!, launches a graviton charge across the map, slowing nearby enemies as it passes, then pulling them toward it when it detonates.

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.
