A new ‘hero’ is coming to Overwatch and we have our first look at Moira before she vows to bring down Overwatch with her powers
If you were not paying attention out at Blizzcon here recently then you may have missed a few new things that are heading to Overwatch here soon. A few things like a new map and another new hero for the game are now coming out there from Blizzard and trying to add even more into the mix of things. That is right, we have a new character heading to Overwatch and it is high time to meet Moira and all of her “unethical” ways. At least some will see them as unethical as she is definitely not on the side of good and righteousness here. All based on her story and some of how she does just exactly what she does.
Moira will be filling in another Support slot in Overwatch and will be bringing some interesting damage output along with the ability to keep her allies alive just a bit longer. She will have something called Biotic Grasp that will heal allies in front of her with her left hand and sap health from foes with her right hand. All to make her last just a bit longer. She will also be hurling around Biotic Orbs that will bounce around the maps of Overwatch slowly draining enemies that come too close. Mix that in with her Fade ability that lets her teleport short distances and her Coalescence ability that allows her to damage enemies and heal allies in a beam, and she will be a force to reckon with here.

As I mentioned above, there was also a new map for Overwatch teased out at Blizzcon and it looks to bring all of the fun from Blizzard‘s past right into the full on fight for the game. You can see the teaser below, but it looks like a full amusement park style map that will have aspects of the developer’s past titles made into “ride” that I assume will be set pieces as well as functional to make the matches just a bit more interesting. Sadly, there has yet to be a set date for this map or Moira so your guess is as good as mine as to when we will see it all grace Overwatch. At least in the live game side as everything should be available right now on the PTR side.
