Blizzard has revealed Overwatch's 26th hero, the talented and ambitious Talon geneticist, Moira O'Deorain. Announced at BlizzCon 2017, the BlizzardWorld map encapsulates themes and locales from past Blizzard games such as Diablo 3 and Hearthstone. A quick trailer shows what she brings to the table in battle. 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. Much like Zenyatta she's focused on healing, but can also damage her enemies through other abilities.

Overwatch's new hero is Moira, and you can spell that "OP AF" according to Jeff Kaplan. Blizard has already launched the hero page for Moira which details her skills.


She then also has basic abilities: Biotic Orb can either heal allies or damage enemies as it bounces around teh map, and Fade gives her the ability to teleport a short distance instantly. There's no release date set for the latest Overwatch hero yet, though it's likely she'll arrive with the Blizzard World map. Today's new animated short is no different, giving fans perspective on what made Reinhardt who he is today. At the same time, she can use her biotic grasp as an attack to sap health from enemies to fuel her resources, or use her biotic orb AoE to deal damage to the enemy team instead of healing.

In addition to a new hero, Overwatch will also be receiving a new map featuring a theme park based on different Blizzard properties. Blizzard World will be a hybrid map, meaning that the first part of the map will be capture point, and after the first point has been captured, will evolve into a payload map.
