Kaplan said: "We are extremely open-minded about releasing a map editor for Overwatch someday. But because Overwatch was made with a brand new engine, this is not a small task or one which can happen any time soon. We have this on our long-term road map and believe heavily in user-made content. But there are many challenges ahead of us and it will be a very long road before our editor can be made available to the public".

 

 

Overwatch continues to evolve, with Blizzard adding in a 24th hero - and a 6th tank role has just gone live with Orisa. Orisa is an "onmic peacekeeper", who was built to protect the people of Numbani. Her abilities include:

 

  • Fusion Driver - A rapid-fire automatic gun that touts good range and accuracy even at a distance
  • Protective Barrier - Throw a device that creates a stationary shield, perfect for intercepting projectiles and protecting teammates
  • Supercharger - Orisa's ultimate ability beams a buff to allies within range, increasing the damage they can inflict on the opposing team
