New Overwatch Character Moira Announced, while Reinhardt Gets an Epic Animated Short

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

Blizzcon 2017 saw a flurry of announcements by the blockbuster developer, including the reveal of Moira, an all-new support hero for Overwatch.

The new hero is Moira, a support healer. Her ultimate deals heavy damage to enemies while simultaneously healing allies in its path. Moira is coming to PTR before releasing on consoles and PC for everyone at a later date.


Creative director Jeff Kaplan described the character something of a hybrid character, which is something a bit unusual for Overwatch, but was looking forward to seeing the character in the hands of players-even jokingly describing the characters as "OP AF".

BlizzCon 2017 brought tons of pleasant surprises for Overwatch fans. If you're reading this from Blizzcon, you can check her out on the show floor with no limits. This skill is called Bionic Grasp, and the damaging energy can also heal Moira and restore her energy. So Blizzard can advertise its other games to you while you're playing Overwatch. Yay!


Finally, we leave you with this new Overwatch short called "Honor and Glory" that tells the emotional - seriously, there might be tears - story of how Reinhardt and his brother fought during the Omnic wars. She looks utterly badass, and we can't wait to see her skins, too.

Coalescence- Moira channels a long-range beam that both heals allies and bypasses barriers to damage her enemies. Continuing to expand on the game's multiplayer content, a new playable character and multiplayer map have been showcased.


The new map is Blizzard World, a zany theme park map based on all of Blizzard's properties.
