BlizzCon 2017: Overwatch to Get New Hero Moira, New BlizzardWorld Map Soon

They made the announcement atBlizzCon [VIDEO] 2017, and though Blizzard didn't set a timeline for her introduction into the game's playable characters, she's fully playable on the show floor at #Blizzcon and is scheduled to hit Overwatch's PTR (Public Test Region) before being released into the game.

"Moira" is the new support healer on her way to Overwatch, offering a mix of damage-dealing and healing abilities.

This means that, alongside Sombra, Reaper, and Widowmaker, Moira will be the most recent character in Overwatch to work for the sinister terrorist organization. There's also a new animated short exploring the origins of hammer-wielding tank, Reinhardt. This skill is called Bionic Grasp, and the damaging energy can also heal Moira and restore her energy. "Once she's charged Coalescence, Moira can save multiple allies from elimination at once or finish off weakened enemies". Her right hand fires a long-range beam weapon that saps enemies' health, healing Moira and replenishing her biotic energy.

Fade - Moira quickly teleports a short distance. Given that Overwatch only just introduced the Junkertown map, it makes sense that Blizzard will hold off on releasing this new map for now. Her ultimate looks like a combined super-beam that heals all allies caught in it, or drains all enemies.

The new map, Blizzard World, is a theme park packed with references to every other Blizzard property, from StarCraft to Lost Vikings.

What do you think about the upcoming Overwatch additions?
