Orisa, Overwatch's new quadruped tank, has been in the PTR for slightly longer than usual, with Blizzard doing their best to ensure she's balanced before releasing her into the wild. New heroes often bring the most excitement, since it give's players a new way to experience the game.

Orisa was announced in early March following months of build-up, before being introduced to the game's public test server (PTS) to allow the developers at Blizzard to tweak her weapons and abilities as to keep the larger game balanced.

By the time she turned 11, she was too heavy to support her weight standing up, and resorted to crawling in her home on her knees. She was born weighing a staggering 11 lbs and was shortly diagnosed afterwards with the parasitic disease called Elephantiasis.

"Orisa serves as the central anchor of her team, and defends her teammates from the frontline with a protective barrier". She can also use Fortify which provides 50 percent damage reduction and rejects crowd control 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.

Overwatch became a big hit after releasing for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC last May.
