Share this:

At BlizzCon, a few an Overwatch new hero and new map was announced by the studio! Blizzard is adding a new Overwatch hero,”Moira,” and according to Blizzard, she’s a “geneticist” though one that throws morals and ethics out the window. Check out details of her abilities and her reveal trailer below.

Role: Support (Difficulty to use 2/3 starts)

Moira’s biotic abilities enable her to contribute healing or damage in any crisis. 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. Once she’s charged Coalescence, Moira can save multiple allies from elimination at once or finish off weakened enemies.



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.

If that wasn’t enough, a new map is on the way too! Prepare to fight in a Blizzard theme park called “Blizzard World!”

See your favorite gaming memories come to life in Overwatch’s new hybrid map as you attack and defend the payload across Azeroth, Tristram, the Koprulu Sector, and beyond!

Currently, there’s no set date on when Moira will become available, with the Blizzard World map set to come sometime in “early 2018.”

Thoughts on the new hero so far? She certainly seems to be inspired by Dragon Ball or maybe it’s just me? Her ultimate certainly reminds me of Ki blasts and energy wave battles in the anime.
