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

The biggest of those is a brand new hero that's coming to the game in the near future: Moira.

The next new hero is Moira, a highly mobile support healer that can dish out a load of damage. "Biotic Grasp" is her new short-range healing and damage ability, while "Biotic Orbs" reach longer-ranges via a throwable gadget.

This means that, alongside Sombra, Reaper, and Widowmaker, Moira will be the most recent character in Overwatch to work for the sinister terrorist organization. To see her trailer, look further up the article. Blizard has already launched the hero page for Moira which details her skills. The new hero, called Moira, is the 26th playable character to be added to the game. And finally, Lucio isn't the only support hero with serious moves: Moira's "Fade" power gives her some really nice mobility options for getting into position or out of trouble. Her ultimate ability, Coalescence, lets her unleash a beam that will heal any allies caught in it, or deal damage to any foes caught inside of it.

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.

Blizzcon 2017 also saw the reveal of Blizzard Land, a new map that is essentially a theme park featuring attractions based on a variety of famous Blizzard titles. Reinhardt used to be full of daring-do and an obsession with glory, but like the rest of Overwatch's team, his history has colored his motives for being a part of the team and rejoining it for its latest endeavors.
