Blizzard has revealed Overwatch's 26th hero, the talented and ambitious Talon geneticist, Moira O'Deorain.

A new map called Blizzard World and a new hero named Moira were revealed for Overwatch during BlizzCon today, and both look absolutely tantalizing. To see her trailer, look further up the article. Most significant is the newest member of the game's playable roster of characters, as the hero Moira was announced.

She then also has basic abilities: Biotic Orb can either heal allies or damage enemies as it bounces around teh map, and Fade gives her the ability to teleport a short distance instantly.

The new hero, Moira, will be a support hero with the ability to switch and synergize between healing and dealing damage.

His rookie season was his most productive as he posted just over 1,000 yards receiving on 73 receptions with nine touchdowns. He was solid last season, finishing the year with 63 catches for 941 yards, and he was on a similar pace this season.


"Moira's biotic abilities enable her to contribute healing or damage in any crisis".

Furthermore, Blizzard showed off a new animated cinematic for Reinhardt, one of its more popular tank heroes, focussing on his backstory and his reasons for joining Overwatch.

Bionic Grasp: Using her left hand, Moira expends biotic energy to heal allies in front of her. "Once she's charged Coalescence, Moira can save multiple allies from elimination at once or finish off weakened enemies". Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan outright joked her name should be spelled "OPAF".

That was in reference to BlizzardWorld, a new map coming to the game that takes the form of a fantastic Blizzard theme park. Blizzard World will be a hybrid map, meaning that the first part of the map will be capture point, and after the first point has been captured, will evolve into a payload map.
