Overwatch Getting a New Sniper Hero Named Ana
Want another Overwatch character to add to your already impressive roster? Of course you do...
Good new, Overwatch is getting a new hero named Ana, a sniper healer. Below is a reveal trailer that was just released.
If you play Overwatch on a PC, like a nerd, you can already play as Ana. She is available if you play on the public test servers. You will have to download a separate client from Battle.net to play on these servers.
Now let's talk about Ana, abilities and all. I don't play Overwatch so I have no idea who Pharaoh is, but apparently Ana is her mother. Cool! Now, Ana has an unusual sniper rifle called the Biotic Rifle. The cool thing about this gun is that while it not only deals damage to baddies, it also heals your nearby teammates, so I guess she's kinda worth hanging out around.
Ana also has grenades called Biotic Grenades, which have the same concept as the rifle, hurts bad guys, heals good guys. Again, I'd make friends with this character.. Lastly, Ana has what's called a Nano Boost. This ability allows her to give a teammate a temporary buff that makes them stronger, faster, and more resistant to incoming damage. I'll say it one more time, this is the kind of person you need to make friends with. I've never heard of a teammate with abilities like these but she seems like a literal lifesaver.
Of course Ana will have a variety of unlockable skins as well.
No word yet on when Ana will make it into the regular game, or when she'll be coming to consoles. Stay tuned for more information.
