Moira: Everything we know about the new Overwatch hero

Moira: Everything we know about the new Overwatch hero

It's a bumper night for Overwatch at BlizzCon 2017 - there's both a new hero and a new map coming!

Overwatch's new hero is Moira, and you can spell that "OP AF" according to Jeff Kaplan. Moira can also charge her Coalescence ability to simultaneously rescue multiple teammates from elimination or finish off weakened opponents. While Biotic Grasp gives Moira short-range options, her Biotic Orbs contribute longer-range, hands-off damage and healing; she can also Fade to escape groups or remain close to allies in need of support.

There were three huge announcements given for Overwatch at BlizzCon, Blizzard Entertainment's yearly conference, this year.

However, the reveal trailer has shown that she apparently has ties to both Talon and Reaper, and is possibly the person who stitched Gabriel Reyes back together to create the smokey, psychotic killer that Reaper is today.

The IDF on Monday, 10 Cheshvan, targeted a terrorist tunnel originating in the Khan Yunis area of Gaza and continuing into Israel. Conricus called the tunnel a "grave and unacceptable violation of Israeli sovereignty" for which he held Hamas responsible.

Overwatch Moira Skills - What does she do? There's no release date set for the latest Overwatch hero yet, though it's likely she'll arrive with the Blizzard World map. There's also a new animated short exploring the origins of hammer-wielding tank, Reinhardt. She looks like a bit of an all-rounder. The new hero, called Moira, is the 26th playable character to be added to the game.

It's an interesting time for a new character to be brought into the light, considering the current "Overwatch" World Cup games that are well underway, and very quickly coming to a conclusion. 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.

Are you excited to play as Moira in Overwatch?
