Blizzard Announces Overwatch’s Next Hero: Ana

Get ready for heal-snipes. Blizzard today revealed the next playable character in Overwatch, and as had been rumoured, it’s a long-range healer. Meet Ana.

Ana, who is Pharah’s mother and a sniper support character, has a Biotic rifle that both heals allies and does “ongoing damage” to enemies.
