Overwatch’s Osira is good to go.

Orisa joined the Overwatch roster on March 21 but Blizzard chose to delay her Competitive Play debut for a week to give people the chance to get to grips with her abilities.

But she’s finally available in Competitive Play, as of yesterday, when it was announced on the Overwatch Twitter account.

Orisa is essentially a mix of other heroes’ abilities, and is a solid tank and central anchor of her team, with a protective barrier for defence.

“I think she’s a core character to the Overwatch lineup in terms of gameplay mechanics and functionality,” said game director Jeff Kaplan. “She’s going to serve a really unique roll in Overwatch.”
