Blizzard’s latest character to join Overwatch is a familiar one for those who know the Overwatch Lore as the team announced that the mysterious healing Sniper Rifle that was teased belonged to Ana, a founding member of the Overwatch team and mother to resident Rocket-Launcher Pharah, originally thought to be dead after losing a sniper duel against Widowmaker.
Ana is an unique addition to the cast as she serves as a support class Sniper, able to heal from a long distance and deal damage over time with Biotic Rifle. To help control the battlefield, she also comes with Biotic grenades which can be used to simultaneously heal allies and damage opponents. Finally she also comes equip with a pistol that fires “Sleep Darts,” great for knocking her adversaries’ unconscious. Ana’s ultimate ability, Nano Boost, transforms teammates into super soldiers, granting faster movement, increased damage, and resistance to enemy attacks.
Blizzard has yet to confirm a release date for the character. However you can check out the origins trailer above, and the character in action below!
