'Overwatch' 2.7 Patch Notes: New hero Orisa, Ana nerf and more now live in new update


Rejoice! Overwatch's newest character, the centaur-like tank Orisa, is now available for free across all platforms.

You can play Orisa once you download the newest patch update, 2.7, which also includes a number of significant changes that were on the public test realm in recent weeks. This includes a nerf to Ana's damage and a slight nerf to Bastion's damage resistance. We've got the full patch notes embedded below.

Notably, patch 2.7 does not include an update to Lúcio that Blizzard hopes will ultimately make him a bit more exciting to play. It's likely that particular update needs a bit more time on the public test realm before it's ready to go live. Similarly, an update that changes the way ties are handled in competitive mode is not yet live.

Alongside Orisa's release, Blizzard published a new video showcasing all her abilities, which you can watch below.
