Moira Overwatch Release Date: New Hero Announced at Blizzcon 2017

The Overwatch: What's Next panel goes live at 3 PM Pacific Time, so we should have more information on Moira then.

A new map called Blizzard World and a new hero named Moira were revealed for Overwatch during BlizzCon today, and both look absolutely tantalizing. A trailer was also presented, showing off her abilities and playstyle. 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.

At BlizzCon, it was also announced that Moira is a two-star difficulty hero, making her notably more challenging to play than the current support fan favorite Mercy.

We already know that Moira is a support character that is capable of both healing and dealing damage. Her ultimate appears to be a big beam that heals teammates and damages enemies. It's not entirely clear how her abilities work, but it seems that she will function kind of like Zenyatta in that players will need to swap between damage and healing. And her power is all in her hands: Her left hand heals allies, while the right hand does long-range damage. "Once she's charged Coalescence, Moira can save multiple allies from elimination at once or finish off weakened enemies".

Creative director Jeff Kaplan described the character something of a hybrid character, which is unusual for Overwatch.
