The latest addition to the Overwatch 2 hero lineup, the tank Ramattra, has been announced and you can check out his origin story video below, as well as read more on his backstory. He will arrive with Season 2 starting on December 6th.
A better future for all omnics
This evening, we introduced the latest hero at the Overwatch League Grand Finals!
Check out Ramattra’s origin story, as well as an inside look at his development with art director Dion Rogers and lead hero designer Alec Dawson:
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.
Suffer as I have
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.
Ramattra will join the tank lineup at the beginning of Season Two starting December 6. Our team is counting the days down to when we can share more about our newest hero, so keep an out for more information in the weeks leading up to Season Two.
