Overwatch Anniversary Event. Or, Robocop 76’s Revenge

Hi. I’m alive. A bunch of you were probably wondering why I was dead, but if I was dead i’d be rotting in a grave someplace, not writing this right now. Anyways, since I last wrote in,  Overwatch had another new event. Honestly, their getting a bit event happy by now. But this isn’t any event. It’s the Overwatch Anniversary Event! Which means that there’s a huge event that takes even longer to download than the game itself.  My computer nearly crashed trying to download it! But of course, my computer’s a piece of trash, so that’s obvious.

Anyways, apart from the aforementioned Robocop 76 (It’s actually called Cybersoldier or  something stupid, but it’s basically Robocop 76), Bastion got a new skin, and it’s called Dune Buggy, even though it looks nothing like a dune buggy. Here it is.

ELI'S BUGGY

I can see the resemblance there, Jeff.  Also, Genji got a new skin, and it’s the Green Power Ranger. No, literally.

Also, no new skin for Junkrat (boooooooo) But D.Va got a new skin, which is surprising because if we look at D,Va’s play rates…….. What? It’s THAT high? (jumps off Niagara Falls while on fire)  And also, Tracer got a new skin, and it’s pretty good.

But honestly,  the best skin of them all is Lucio. Take a good long look at that hat, class, because it’s all you’re going to be seeing for a while.

Also, EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER got a new dance emote. Roadhog’s is the best, though.

DO THE HULA-HULA! And if that wasn’t enough,  there are THREE new maps! Castillo, Necropolis and The Black Forest are their names, but their basically Dorado, Temple of Anubis, and Eichenwalde. And they are ARENA MAPS! No more Watchpoint: Antartica for me, BOY. Bye.

BREAKING OVERWATCH NEWS: ORISA

Yes, that opening sounded WAY too dramatic.But, You’re probably going, What’s an Orisa? Well, I’ll tell you what an Orisa is. Orisa is the….. NEWEST HERO IN OVERWATCH! WOOT WOOT! She is a…. Well, take a look at the picture.

As you can tell, she is a robot, built by Efi Oladele, a 10-year old child prodigy, from recycled Omnic parts, to protect the city of Numbani from danger. I bet a bunch of you are going, YAY! A character that ties in with Numbani! Her abilities are the following: (for XBox One)

RT:Fusion Driver. Basically D.Va’s gun with ammo. 🙂

LT: HALT! A (slightly worse) version of Zarya’s Graviton Surge.

RB: Fortify. A self shield that protects from movement abilities. E.G Sleep Dart.

LB: Protective Barrier. A barrier that protects from oncoming attacks.

ULTIMATE: Supercharger. Charges players on your team with extra damage. YAY for players on Orisa’s team!

She is the first new tank character in the game. However, the funny thing about her is the fact that she was NOT teased at all. Probably because the Sombra thingamajiggy failed. A LOT. Everybody was expecting Doomfist to be added. But, Orisa seems like a really good tank. The only bad things about her are her skins, but HEY! She’s a new character! Half her skins are probably going to be changed! Geez! And that brings us to the end of the news. Bye!
