New Overwatch Character Moira Announced, while Reinhardt Gets an Epic Animated Short

Posted November 04, 2017

This means that, alongside Sombra, Reaper, and Widowmaker, Moira will be the most recent character in Overwatch to work for the sinister terrorist organization. One of the first things that the company chose to unveil was not only a new Overwatch map and animated short, but they showed off a new hero as well. A trailer was also presented, showing off her abilities and playstyle.

The new hero, Moira, will be a support hero with the ability to switch and synergize between healing and dealing damage. Most significant is the newest member of the game's playable roster of characters, as the hero Moira was announced.

Finally, we leave you with this new Overwatch short called "Honor and Glory" that tells the emotional - seriously, there might be tears - story of how Reinhardt and his brother fought during the Omnic wars. "Once she's charged Coalescence, Moira can save multiple allies from elimination at once or finish off weakened enemies".

Bionic Orb: Moira launches a rebounding biotic sphere; she can choose between a regeneration effect that heals the allies it passes through, or a decay effect that deals damage to enemies. Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan outright joked her name should be spelled "OPAF". And her power is all in her hands: Her left hand heals allies, while the right hand does long-range damage.
