Blizzard Announces New Overwatch Support Hero Moira at BlizzCon 2017

One of the many new pieces of information that Blizzard has revealed at BlizzCon this year is a new Overwatch character, named Moira. Moira is a support hero, offering both damaging and offensive options with her abilities, transitioning between two attack types: a yellow, healing attack, and a purple, damaging attack.

There were three huge announcements given for Overwatch at BlizzCon, Blizzard Entertainment's yearly conference, this year. You can get a sampling of Moira's abilities in the trailer above, though we don't know when we'll be able to play her outside of Blizzcon yet.

For Overwatch players who have also played many of Blizzard's other games, the Blizzard World map is an absolute dream come true.

Biotic 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. Her right hand fires a long-range beam weapon that saps enemies' health, healing Moira and replenishing her biotic energy. Her ultimate looks like a combined super-beam that heals all allies caught in it, or drains all enemies.

National Anthem To Be Stopped Playing Inside The Cinema Halls?
The order came with additional caveats such as everyone present in the hall must rise and "pay respect" to the National Anthem. Chandrachud asked: "Why do people have to wear their patriotism on their sleeve?" Article 51A is not enforceable.

Bryan Black, Dustin Wright, and Jeremiah Johnson were the courageous soldiers who died in the Islamic State ambush in Niger. Johnson's aunt, who raised the soldier from a young age, said the family took that remark to be disrespectful.

Israel targets Syrian anti-aircraft battery in retaliation
This resulted in an IAF retaliation, firing at the anti-aircraft battery, located 50 kilometers (30 miles) east of Damascus. Conricus said the incident was the first time Israeli aircraft had been targeted over Lebanese airspace since 2011.

It's an interesting time for a new character to be brought into the light, considering the current "Overwatch" World Cup games that are well underway, and very quickly coming to a conclusion. Blizzard World, as it is called, is a hybrid map that is part assault and part payload.

No word yet on when Moira will hit PTR, but expect her to be a bit controversial (just like nearly all new Overwatch characters).

Along with BlizzardWorld, we also saw a brand new hero, Moira.
