Blizzard's Public Test Realm (PTR) introduces the 24th hero to Team Shooter Overwatch. The new tank robot hero named Orisa, and Director Jeff Kaplan reveals her as the brand new character. She is the first naive but good-intentioned robot centaur.

Overwatch's Orisa is the creation of Efi Oladele, which features a defensive class that supports abilities to help her team and challenges the enemy. She can engage large amounts of damage, which her gameplay is well-engineered around an excellent protection.

Orisa makes the sixth tank character in the game after D.Va, Roadhog, Zarya, Winston and Reinhardt. She is the first new tank hero after the offensive-focussed Sombra. Doomfist is the powerful villain, yet Orisa is built to battle, which means Orisa and Doomfist are connected.

According to Game Spot, the new tank hero highlights a "Protective Barrier Power" and "Supercharger Ultimate," which may make her the best for playing defense. She serves as the central anchor of her team. She gains more defenses for her teammates from the frontline because the tank hero gets an excellent protective barrier.

Orisa can attack from long range that strengthens her own defenses. She is capable of blasting off graviton charges to weaken and move enemies. Orisa can also deploy a "Supercharger" to increase the damage output of her many allies all at once, as per IGN.

Overwatch's Orisa comes with "Fusion Driver," which features automatic projectile cannon that conveys sustained damage, yet it slows her movement while she is using it. Orisa's Fortify can momentarily moderate damage she takes, but it cannot be distressed by action-impairing effects.

The new tank hero also highlights "Halt" and "SuperCharger" abilities that allow increasing damage inflicted by allies. She can also cut down an opponent's health with ease while suppressing fire within her in sight.

Overwatch's offense heroes are Tracer, Sombra, Soldier: 76, Reaper, Pharah, McCree and Genji. The defense stars are Hanzo, Bastion, Junkrat, Mei, Windowmaker, and Torbjom. The support heroes are Lucio, Mercy, Symmetra, Zenyatta, Ana. The tank heroes are Zarya, Winston, Reinhardt, Roadhog, D.Va and Orisa.
