March 2, 2017 | Posted by Joseph Lee

Blizzard Entertainment has announced the 24th hero for Overwatch, named Orisa. A new trailer, which you can watch below, reveals her origin story. She is available in the game’s play test region and will be available for everyone else soon.

She’s described as the “central anchor” of the team and can defend teammates with a protective barrier. Her abilities include:

FUSION DRIVER – Orisa’s automatic projectile cannon delivers sustained damage, but slows her movement while she fires it.
FORTIFY – Orisa temporarily reduces damage she takes, and cannot be affected by action-impairing effects.
HALT! – Orisa launches a graviton charge which she can detonate, slowing nearby enemies and pulling them towards the explosion.
PROTECTIVE BARRIER – Orisa throws out a stationary barrier that can protect her and her allies from enemy fire.
SUPERCHARGER – Orisa deploys a device to increase damage inflicted by allies within her line of sight.

Here’s a synopsis of the game: In Overwatch, clash on the battlefields of tomorrow and choose your hero from a diverse cast of soldiers, scientists, adventurers, and oddities. Bend time, defy physics, and unleash an array of extraordinary powers and weapons. Engage your enemies in iconic locations from around the globe in the ultimate team-based shooter. Take your place in Overwatch. The world needs heroes.
