New Overwatch Hero Orisa Hits PTR Today

It looks like fans of Overwatch will have something new to get excited about, as the new Tank Hero Orisa is available for testing on the Public Test Server today. Orisa is the third character to be added to the roster after Ana the sniping healer and Sombra the Hacker. She’s also the first new tank hero to make an appearance since launch.

Orisa arrived after a very short teaser campaign where Blizzard introduced the character of Efi Oladele, a genius 11 year old scientist from Numbani. The short introduction is a welcome change after the extremely drawn out augmented reality game for the release of Sombra that left players more frustrated than excited. Orisa is a killer Spider robot designed by Efi, built out of the wreckage of an OR15 defense robot after witnessing an attack by Doomfist, one of the game’s most notorious villains.

As mentioned above, Orisa is a tank class character designed to protect herself and her allies from harm. Many of the tanks, like D.VA and Winston, specialize in high mobility and jumping around the battlefield to make plays. On the opposite end of the spectrum, there’s Reinhardt who acts as a sort of “anchor” for his team, using a powerful shield to help his allies advance. Orisa is designed to function similarly to Reinhardt, though unlike Reinhardt her machine gun features the biggest range of any tank in the game. Orisa is also unique in that her shield can be deployed wherever it’s most needed, rather than being tied to her model.

Orisa’s secondary fire is a shot that can pull enemies closer to her and place them in a more favorable position for her team. The ultimate ability, a chargeable cooldown that defines each character, is Supercharger, the drum-like device on her back that Orisa can place to provide a damage boost for all allies within line of sight. Test out Orisa now on the PTR, and take a look at the intro trailer below! Check back with Geekreply for the latest in Overwatch news.

Immersing oneself in realistic worlds using the impressive capabilities of Sony’s PSVR2 headset is undeniably fantastic. However, there are instances where stylized visuals can prove to be more effective. Sushi Ben seems to have a good grasp on the concept of delivering a manga-inspired world, which will be available starting on May 28th. This lively release from Big Brane offers a delightful collection of mini-games, allowing players to immerse themselves in the charming atmosphere of a coastal town.

In order to prevent the local sushi bar from going out of business, you’ll have to lend a hand to the local townsfolk and engage in a range of activities to boost trade. As one would anticipate, fishing is the main focus as you embark on angling adventures to catch various types of fish in order to satisfy your customers’ desires.

And that’s not all! There is a wide array of activities to immerse yourself in, such as table tennis, bug-catching, dog walking, archery, and more. Each of these experiences fully utilizes the innovative motion-controlled gameplay that is exclusive to PSVR2. The manga art style in this game is truly impressive, featuring dynamic pop-up comic book panels and other visually stunning elements.
