Hot off the tail of announcing a new map and a new hero at BlizzCon 2017, Overwatch brought out Overwatch voice actor Darin De Paul, the heart and soul behind beloved tank character Reinhardt, to debut the latest animated short. To see her trailer, look further up the article. Armed with a range of powerful biotic abilities, Moira has long and short range options at her disposal, her Biotic Orbs able to offer hands-off damage and healing from longer distances.

She's got to balance these, though: using the healing attack, she expends energy, which is then replenished with her damaging attack, which also heals Moira.

After Overwatch's disbanding, Moira would move her operations to Oasis so that she could continue to fund her research and workings. Her ability to heal will be resource based, and it will be fueled by the amount of damage that she does. "Once she's charged Coalescence, Moira can save multiple allies from elimination at once or finish off weakened enemies". 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.

The new Overwatch character also has a number of interesting abilities to augment her mysterious history. Today's new animated short is no different, giving fans perspective on what made Reinhardt who he is today.

That was in reference to BlizzardWorld, a new map coming to the game that takes the form of a fantastic Blizzard theme park. Overwatch's Jeff Kaplan said it's a hybrid map - having both assault and payload elements.
