This morning Overwatch devs tweeted a preview of the newest Champion: Orisa.
“Rheinhardt is really the only character that can stand his ground and mark a spot, and move with his team real slow. So we thought there was a great opportunity there for another option.”
“The look of Orisa really spawned from the idea of wanting to do an African Mech. We have a map called Numbani which is in Africa. Numbani being one of the futuristic cities we have in Overwatch, with the curved shapes and the greens and yellows and earth tones. We really wanted that to carry through into Orisa’s design.
“One of the things we haven’t done yet was a Quadraped. There’s a whole ecology of omnic unis from the Omi Crisis that are three legs, four legs, five legs, you name it, so we wanted to explore what other archetypes Overwatch could have.”

Orisa will be available on March 21st, 2017.
