Blizzard has revealed Overwatch's 26th hero, the talented and ambitious Talon geneticist, Moira O'Deorain.

BlizzCon 2017 is now in full swing at the Anaheim Convention Center, and Blizzard used the show's opening ceremonies to reveal a ton of new Overwatch goodness. She will also sport a movement ability, fade, which will allow her to quickly teleport over a short distance. She's essentially Mercy's dark counterpart - she's a healer, but she's got an edgier look, and is a former member of the shadowy Blackwatch division.

Moira is the latest hero, and she'll both the opposition away with shadow while she heals her allies.

Casualties Reported, Shots Fired In Downtown Manhattan: US Media
The New York police have told people to stay away from the area in Lower Manhattan and confirmed that one person is in custody. A witness said the man then fired the weapons - which sources said may have been a BB gun.

The new hero Moira does a great deal of healing and damage, and is kind of reminiscent of an evil Symmetra with her close-range homing beam and long-range orbs of pain.

Last but not least, Blizzard also showed off a brand new 7-minute Overwatch animated short featuring the tank hero, Reinhardt. And her power is all in her hands: Her left hand heals allies, while the right hand does long-range damage. Much like Zenyatta she's focused on healing, but can also damage her enemies through other abilities. 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. Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan outright joked her name should be spelled "OPAF".

Blizzard has unveiled a new character on its way to Overwatch, followed by a new map based on a Blizzard theme park. The map is part assault and part payload and it will be going live early 2018 and will be on the PTR soon.
