Yesterday, we shared a video of Overwatch’s “omnic monk” Zenyatta finding inner peace through outright destruction of his opponents. Today, we showcase a character that plays quite differently.

Mercy is a winged healer who is better played away from the front line. You don’t want her too far out of reach though, because her healing beam can keep the damage-dealing members of the team alive and killing. She can also amplify ally damage with the alternate version of the beam.

Mercy also has a pistol for offense, and it her ultimate ability can raise teammates from the dead. Overwatch is due to hit beta later this year. For more, you can read our impressions from PAX East.
