And she’s got some mobility!

Another healer! As announced at BlizzCon, Overwatch‘s next hero will be Moira, a support.

“In case you’re wondering how to spell Moira, it’s spelled ‘OP AF,’” joked game director Jeff Kaplan, who added that she was once a part of Blackwatch and has a “storied history” with Talon.

Expect an origin video and more details later today.

Abilities

  • Biotic Grasp: Using her left hand, Moira expends biotic energy to heal allies in front of her. Her right hand fires a long-range beam weapon that saps enemies’ health, healing Moira and replenishing her biotic energy.
  • 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.
  • Fade: Moira quickly teleports a short distance.
  • Coalescence: Moira channels a long-range beam that both heals allies and bypasses barriers to damage her enemies.
