Overwatch Adding New Character Moira, "Ambitious" Talon Geneticist

The other piece of Overwatch news from the opening ceremony is a new themepark styled map called Blizzard World which features all their major franchises in one location. The new hero, called Moira, is the 26th playable character to be added to the game. "Biotic Grasp" is her new short-range healing and damage ability, while "Biotic Orbs" reach longer-ranges via a throwable gadget. Finally, her new ultimate "Coalescence" fires a beam across the map, that heals allies while dealing heavy damage to enemies.

Creative director Jeff Kaplan described the character something of a hybrid character, which is something a bit unusual for Overwatch, but was looking forward to seeing the character in the hands of players-even jokingly describing the characters as "OP AF". Blizzard has provided a deeper breakdown of Moira's abilities and backstory on the official Overwatch site, however, is yet to announce a release date.

"Dissent among her peers soon followed".

Blizard also showed off a new story cinematic. She's essentially Mercy's dark counterpart - she's a healer, but she's got an edgier look, and is a former member of the shadowy Blackwatch division.

Using her left hand, Moira expends biotic energy to heal allies in front of her.


Moira quickly teleports a short distance.

After Overwatch's disbanding, Moira would move her operations to Oasis so that she could continue to fund her research and workings.

Desperate to make scientific breakthroughs, Moira always wanted to make a name for herself, but so far, she's unknown to most of the world.

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