Watch 11 minutes of Overwatch's heavy, Zarya, and her big particle cannon in action

Overwatch's heavy — one of them, at least — Zarya is the star of a new gameplay video released by Blizzard Entertainment, showing off her offensive and defensive capabilities.

Zarya wields a hefty particle cannon that both deals damage and surrounds herself or a teammate in a protective bubble shield. She can also launch a Graviton Surge bomb as part of her ultimate ability, which sucks in enemies and damages them for a period of time. You can see Zarya's talents in action in the 11-minute video above.

Over the past few weeks, Blizzard has released a series of gameplay videos highlighting Overwatch's team of heroes, including Bastion, Pharah, ReinhardtTjorbörn, ReaperHanzo, Tracer, Zenyatta, McCree and Mercy.

Overwatch is coming to Mac and Windows PC, with a beta planned for later this year.
