Orisa will take up a Tank role in a team offering various defensive abilities and a long range offensive option.
Orisa’s official origin story also gave us more information on the Numbani International Airport attack that inspired Oladele to create the 24th hero.
“I was at the airport when Doomfist attacked. Poor bots didn’t stand a chance.”
Blizzard seem content to continue to taunt us with Doomfist and the possibility of Terry Crews voicing him. We can only hope that the legend of Doomfist is final realised as a playable character… hopefully sooner rather than later.
