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

Reinhardt's Basically Thor in the Newest Overwatch Animated Short

New Overwatch Map Blizzard World Coming in Early 2018

Announced at BlizzCon 2017, the BlizzardWorld map encapsulates themes and locales from past Blizzard games such as Diablo 3 and Hearthstone.

Moira is an Overwatch healer that was once part of Blackwatch-now she aligns with Talon. 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.

The official Overwatch website lists her as Moira O'Deorain, aged 48 and a Geneticist by occupation.

In addition, Blizzard aired a new animated short for Reinhardt, which was wonderful as they always are. Her name's Moira and I haven't played her yet but - as an unrepentant support main - I already love her. She looks like a bit of an all-rounder. "Once she's charged Coalescence, Moira can save multiple allies from elimination at once or finish off weakened enemies".

As the death of his mentor triggers a change in young Reinhardt, the scene moves back to the moment in which the Overwatch is called back in action, and the Crusader tells Brigitte that he must answer the call, like his friend did before him. Her right hand fires a long-range beam weapon that saps enemies' health, healing Moira and replenishing her biotic energy. Blizzard World, as it is called, is a hybrid map that is part assault and part payload.

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.
