Blizzard Announces New Healer and Map for Overwatch, Premier Next Animated Short

BlizzCon 2017 to Feature Esports Detail Future Direction for Blizzard Titles

The official Overwatch website lists her as Moira O'Deorain, aged 48 and a Geneticist by occupation. Blizzcon is in full swing, and Overwatch fans are getting both a new map and hero to play around with. Able to alter DNA at a cellular level, it looked like one of the best steps to stamping out diseases and disorders that had ever been researched, but her peers weren't happy with the findings.

Moira's biotic abilities enable her to contribute healing or damage in any crisis. The new hero, called Moira, is the 26th playable character to be added to the game. It's not entirely clear how her abilities work, but it seems that she will function kind of like Zenyatta in that players will need to swap between damage and healing.

Last but not least, Blizzard also showed off a brand new 7-minute Overwatch animated short featuring the tank hero, Reinhardt.

Bionic Grasp: Using her left hand, Moira expends biotic energy to heal allies in front of her. Her ultimate appears to be a big beam that heals teammates and damages enemies.

Rose McGowan responds to arrest warrant
She claims that officials are "trying to silence" her and are using the arrest warrant to do so. Earlier this month , McGowan said she was raped by Weinstein .

Much like Reaper, however, she also has her Fade ability, which allows her to teleport across a short distance.

Creative director Jeff Kaplan described the character something of a hybrid character, which is unusual for Overwatch.

Coalescence- Moira channels a long-range beam that both heals allies and bypasses barriers to damage her enemies. The map, titled Blizzard world, will be a theme park that is based off of the various IPs from Blizzard. The map is part assault and part payload and it will be going live early 2018 and will be on the PTR soon.
