Blizzard released another gameplay video of its upcoming class-based shooter today, showcasing one more member of Overwatch's diverse cast. This time, the centerpiece is Russian bodybuilder and laser enthusiast Zarya. She's a Tank class like Reinhardt, but with some key differences in her style. Watch her in action:

Zarya has big muscles, but she lets her particle cannon do the talking in this clip. This flexible weapon has a continuous beam projectile as well as a grenade-lobbing mode. Her two other abilities are more defensive in nature. One grants her a shield that absorbs enemy fire and increases the damage of her particle cannon. The other skill is a similar barrier that Zarya can cast on any teammate in range. Her ultimate ability, Graviton Surge, fires a projectile that draws enemies into a singularity and deals damage over time.

Overwatch is a PC exclusive with no announced release date yet. Sign up for the beta here and check out our previews of Hanzo, Reaper, and Tracer.
