Overwatch Adding New Character Moira, "Ambitious" Talon Geneticist

With BlizzCon 2017 having already kicked off, many have been curious as to what Blizzard will unveil at the event.

BlizzCon 2017 is now in full swing at the Anaheim Convention Center, and Blizzard used the show's opening ceremonies to reveal a ton of new Overwatch goodness. A quick trailer shows what she brings to the table in battle. She looks like a bit of an all-rounder. Her main ability, biotic grasp, will allow her to use a small beam-like ability to heal a single target, or she can use her secondary ability, biotic orb, to heal in an AoE. Further details on Moira can be viewed on her Overwatch hero page. She's a shadowy scientist character with ties to Talon and Reaper's past who is capable of dealing damage, but is primarily useful thanks to her ability to heal teammates as a Support.

In addition, Blizzard aired a new animated short for Reinhardt, which was wonderful as they always are. Using her left hand, she can give out biotic energy and heal allies that stand in front of her. "Once she's charged Coalescence, Moira can save multiple allies from elimination at once or finish off weakened enemies".

Fade is a fairly simple ability that sees Moira teleport a short distance. Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan outright joked her name should be spelled "OPAF". 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.

Blizzard World will be a hybrid map, which players will have to attack or defend a control point and then also escort or stop a payload.
