Posted on November 26, 2022 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
Original (11/4): Overwatch 2 has been trucking along since its launch a few weeks ago, and Blizzard has now unveiled Ramattra as the latest hero for its shooter. The news was announced during the Overwatch League Grand Finals just a short while ago.
Blizzard notes that Ramattra began as a war machine, but “shed his munitions for a shield to protect his people by promoting peace and tranquility.” Right now the company is focusing more on his backstory rather than his playstyle, but information about the latter should be shared pretty soon.
Here’s his full bio:
Ramattra’s story is complex and multifaceted, and his ultimate goal is to protect his people – but the cost of that goal is still to be determined.
Originally a war machine, Ramattra shed his munitions for a shield to protect his people by promoting peace and tranquility. His ideals weren’t far removed from his fellow Shambli monk, Zenyatta. However, Ramattra’s story is one of hardships, trauma, and a magnified view of humanity’s harsh realities.
Harmony was replaced by dissonance, and Ramattra began to approach his convictions from a more pragmatic angle-justifying any means necessary to defend his fellow omnics. As the leader of Null Sector, Ramattra boasts incredible support from his people, and he is primed to impose his philosophies on our world.
And here’s a trailer for Ramattra in Overwatch 2:
Ramattra will be available as part of the tank lineup of Overwatch Season Two, which kicks off on December 6. Those interested in the game can pick it up right now on the Switch eShop.
Update (11/26): A gameplay trailer has now been released for Ramattra. You can give it a look below.
