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

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.

First of all, the game is getting a new heroine (or more appropriately, a villainess), Moira, who is a support hero with biotic abilities combining recovery and attack.

Blizzard has revealed Overwatch's 26th hero, the talented and ambitious Talon geneticist, Moira O'Deorain. If you're reading this from Blizzcon, you can check her out on the show floor with no limits.

Biotic Orb - Moira launches a rebounding biotic sphere; she can choose between a regeneration effect that heals the allies it passes through, or a decay effect that deals damage to enemies.

Along with BlizzardWorld, we also saw a brand new hero, Moira. She looks like a bit of an all-rounder.

Fade - Moira quickly teleports a short distance.

Coalescence - Moira channels a long-range beam that both heals allies and bypasses barriers to damage her enemies.

The new map is Blizzard World, a zany theme park map based on all of Blizzard's properties. Although it will go into testing "soon" on the PC-only PTR (Public Test Region), Blizzard World will not be available for players across all platforms until 2018. 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.
