New Overwatch Character

In accordance with BlizzCon, Blizzard updated its official site with more information on the upcoming Overwatch hero.

Overwatch's newest upcoming map is a insane theme park full of World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, Starcraft and other Blizzard games' lore.

Moira also has a Biotic Orb ability, which sees her launch a rebounding sphere which can either heal the allies it reaches, or steal health away from enemies that stand in its path. 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. This skill is called Bionic Grasp, and the damaging energy can also heal Moira and restore her energy. A trailer was also presented, showing off her abilities and playstyle.

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

Moira will head into Overwatch's PTR before she's added to the live game. The map, titled Blizzard world, will be a theme park that is based off of the various IPs from Blizzard. Overwatch's Jeff Kaplan said it's a hybrid map - having both assault and payload elements.

A new multiplayer map is around the corner for Overwatch players too, set in a virtual theme park themed around Blizzard properties. It is not known when these will be available on the main game, but we can hope sooner rather than later.

In addition, Blizzard aired a new animated short for Reinhardt, which was wonderful as they always are.

The first day of BlizzCon 2017 is going on right now in Anaheim, California.
