In accordance with BlizzCon, Blizzard updated its official site with more information on the upcoming Overwatch hero. She's a shadowy scientist character with ties to Talon and Reaper's past who is capable of dealing damage, but is primarily useful thanks to her ability to heal teammates as a Support.

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. Much like Zenyatta she's focused on healing, but can also damage her enemies through other abilities. To see her trailer, look further up the article.

Blizzard has unveiled new content on the way to its popular hero-based first-person shooter (FPS) Overwatch, as a part of its annual BlizzCon conference. We got a look at a new character, map, and a moving Reinhardt animated short. No word yet on when she'll be officially released, but we imagine more news is right around the corner... This skill is called Bionic Grasp, and the damaging energy can also heal Moira and restore her energy. Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan outright joked her name should be spelled "OPAF". Her ultimate ability, Coalescence, lets her unleash a beam that will heal any allies caught in it, or deal damage to any foes caught inside of it. It's a hybrid Assault and Payload map and it's going live early next year, and will be on the PTR very soon. Reinhardt used to be full of daring-do and an obsession with glory, but like the rest of Overwatch's team, his history has colored his motives for being a part of the team and rejoining it for its latest endeavors.
