Overwatch Introduces New Hero: Moira #Blizzcon2017

“My will made real.”

This weekend is Bizzard’s annual convention, Blizzcon, and exciting Overwatch news have arrived.  Often at Blizzcon, the developing team will release major news of a character or a map.  Last year, it had announced the arrival of Sombra.

Moira will be the game 26th’s playable character and is the newest support hero.  Many fans have wanted a new support character for a long time coming, especially a new healer.  Moira is just the fit.

According to the Overwatch character page, Moira’s abilities are as follows:

Using her left hand, Moira expends biotic energy to heal allies in front of her. Her right hand fires a long-range beam weapon that saps enemies’ health, healing Moira and replenishing her biotic energy.

Moira launches a rebounding biotic sphere; she can choose between a regeneration effect that heals the allies it passes through, or a decay effect that deals damage to enemies.

Moira quickly teleports a short distance.

Moira channels a long-range beam that both heals allies and bypasses barriers to damage her enemies.

In terms of lore, Moira is a Talon geneticist with a history in Blackwatch.  According to the Overwatch page, she’s “searching for a way to rewrite the fundamental building blocks of life.”

The last hero announced by Overwatch was the long-awaited and much-alluded Doomfist.  Moira is the newest Overwatch playable hero coming to the game.
