Overwatch Introduces New Hero Orisa


After a few weeks of scattered information and red herrings (which feels very brief compared to Sombra’s introduction), Blizzard introduced the 24th hero to Overwatch. Orisa is an omnic retooled and reworked by the young prodigy, Efi, who has been central to the aforementioned red herrings.

A developer update from director Jeff Kaplan details a tiny bit of her backstory, and more importantly, what she actually can do. On first glance, the things Orisa is capable of makes your jaw drop. Zarya’s ultimate, which creates a gravitational black hole equivalent, is just one of her specials, for example. She’s a tank you can build your whole team around.

Orisa is live right now in the PTR server, though there’s no word on when she’ll be out for everyone, including console players. With promises of retooling existing characters to be more in line with Orisa’s defensive properties, it’s clear that Overwatch isn’t done being a completely fluid, ever-changing game on a gameplay level. Now let’s just keep speculating about when we’ll see Doomfist, and hope Terry Crews stuck around.

"Madden and FIFA have become our go-to with tournaments running nightly and a white board dedicated to win-loss records. Rivalries are forming and guys are finding time to practice in between work and working out to sharpen their mad skills...morale is through the roof! Thank you again, the Supply Crate you sent has truly improved our living conditions and gives us a much needed form of relaxation. You may not realize it, but this will keep our sanity intact."

Your Supply Crate not only made my Christmas, but made my year; this has really turned things around for me. Stack-Up is truly a thoughtful organization, designed to bring happiness to us vets who have an extremely hard time finding happiness anywhere in their lives.

"I heard from a brother that you guys helped him out; to see that kindness still around is amazing. As a vet its hard sometimes, and having groups like yours out helping for nothing in return its great. Please keep up the great work and don't ever stop."

...while we have all had various types of awesome care packages delivered to us over the years with toiletries, tobacco, and tasty treats, none of us have ever experienced anything quite like a Stack-Up Supply Crate.

Working on the flightline, 12 hour days are normal and there are so many stresses that come with my job. Being able to come home and forget all of it for even an hour does wonders for me personally. I have built so many friendships in Stack-Up and I can't wait to make more. It's a family.
