Blizzard has revealed Ana — a healer that can also pack a punch.
After teasing a weapon blueprint of a “biotic rifle” last week, Blizzard has officially revealed Ana as a support chapter that shoots darts that heal allies and damage foes. Additionally, Ana has a grenade that has effects similar to her rifle. Her other ability is a sleep dart that knocks players unconscious — rendering them immobile for a short period of time. Ana’s ultimate, Nano Boost, can give an ally a speed and damage boost while also making them more resistant to incoming damage.
Like many of Overwatch’s most prominent characters, Ana has her own a brief but gorgeous origin trailer that explains her place in the game’s lore. Blizzard has also released an Ana introduction video (below) to showcase Ana’s abilities.
PC players can give Ana a try today in the Public Test Realm. Console players, on the other hand, will have to wait for a patch once Ana is ready to leave testing.
