Overwatch 2 has a lot of different characters to use online, each with their own abilities and play styles. Many who have played the game since its initial launch have enjoyed the many options to pick from when going online for some matches. Whether you’re a damage dealer, support ally, or full-on tank character; Overwatch 2 has a character that will cater to how you prefer to play. But with new content on the way, a new character is getting added to the game and expanding the already diverse roster. And for some players who enjoy using healers, things are about to get more interesting.
A new trailer for Season 6 content of Overwatch 2 reveals the coming of a new character named Illari. This new character is inspired by Incan culture, with a name that translates to “surprise”, and is a healer that players can use to support their team. Illari uses abilities that wield sun powers, which can damage enemies and provide support to allies. One of her abilities is to launch a turret that can stick to surfaces and heal nearby allies, very similar to Symetra’s turrets that damage enemies.
In addition, Illari has an ultimate that lets her fly up into the air and fire down a blast of light that hits opponents caught in its radius. Most of her play style will involve finding a good balance of healing teammates while handing out damage during a match. Because her playstyle is pretty advanced and requires a lot of skill, it will take some time to master Illari’s arsenal of abilities.
The new content that includes Illari is being given the name Invasion and will have more PVE-oriented content. This means players will be able to jump into story-based missions that get deeper into the lore of Overwatch 2 with a new map, new game modes, and new co-op events. One game mode called Hero-Mastery will have you facing bots with various characters in a battle simulation, while other modes will drop you into new maps Survasa and New Junk City.
The new trailer for all of the new content coming to Overwatch 2 gives fans a quick glimpse of everything. If you enjoy getting new skins for any of your heroes, you can also expect to see brand new costumes to come with all of the new content too. Luckily, Overwatch 2 players won’t have to wait long to get into everything that’s new for the game. Season 6 content will release on August 10th for all platforms where you can play Overwatch 2.
