A brand new look at the latest edition to the Overwatch 2 roster comes in the form of a Ramattra gameplay trailer. This new tank hero will release on December 6th along with Season 2, as confirmed in the trailer. It has been a long time since Overwatch introduced a brand-new tank hero, (Doomfist, doesn’t quite count) and this one seems quite a lot darker than the others.
Ramattra in Overwatch 2 looks to have an interesting gameplay mechanic that allows him to stance-change. This means that he holds two different forms, and can switch between them. It’s unclear how to trigger this shift in his stance, but his second form looks devastating. With an AoE ability, a placable shield, and his own personal defence ability, this new hero won’t be one to laugh at.
In terms of how he fits into the Overwatch universe, Ramattra’s existence was revealed long ago. He was first seen talking to Doomfist during the final Storm Rising cutscene. Many players expected him to be evil from this, as he has links to Talon. From his origin story, however, it’s clear that he has much more depth than this. He seeks justice for omnics, seeing his kind cast aside by humanity. He’ll do whatever it takes to allow omnics to have a place in this world and fight for a better future.
