Blizzard Reveals Overwatch's New Hero: Ana

Prepare for heal-snipes. Today, Blizzard announced the next playable hero in Overwatch. As had been rumored, she's a long-range healer, and her name is Ana. She is Pharah's mother and a sniper support character.

She uses a Biotic rifle that both does "ongoing damage" to enemies and heals allies. Ana also uses a biotic grenade that works like her rifle, sleep dart (putting enemies to sleep), and an ability called Nana Boost that buffs allies' attack, defense, an speed.

No release date has been announced for Ana yet, but Blizzard said that she's coming soon. Watch the gameplay footage of the new character below:
