News: Orisa launches for Overwatch today, but won’t be available in Competitive Play during first week

Orisa Hero Overwatch

Overwatch tank hero Orisa arrives today as part of the 1.9 game update, but players will need to spend the first week getting the know Numbani’s new guardian robot.

“When patch 1.9 releases tomorrow, Orisa will not initially be available for Competitive Play. We want to give players some time to learn about and play Orisa before she’s placed into the crucible of Competitive Play,” explained principal designer Scott Mercer.

You will be able to access Orisa in Quick Play, the Arcade (including custom games with the competitive ruleset), and Play vs. AI.
