BlizzCon 2017: Overwatch gets meta with new map, hero Moira

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

A new map called Blizzard World and a new hero named Moira were revealed for Overwatch during BlizzCon today, and both look absolutely tantalizing.

The next new hero is Moira, a highly mobile support healer that can dish out a load of damage. Her ability to heal will be resource based, and it will be fueled by the amount of damage that she does. 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.

Blizzard has revealed Overwatch's 26th hero, the talented and ambitious Talon geneticist, Moira O'Deorain.

For Overwatch players who have also played many of Blizzard's other games, the Blizzard World map is an absolute dream come true. To play her effectively, she's got to be both doing damage and healing constantly. However, Blizzard did joke that she is an incredibly powerful character that the team is eager to see implemented into the game. Blizard has already launched the hero page for Moira which details her skills. She is also able to teleport which will supposedly make her one of the most mobile support heroes yet. Blizzard World, as it is called, is a hybrid map that is part assault and part payload. It's a feast for the eyes that will soon receive a release on the game's public test servers before its official debut in early 2018.

On top of Moira's announcement, we get another real treat, in the form of "Honor and Glory, " a brand new animated short starring Reinhardt, and showing a glimpse on his past.
