Overwatch Support Hero Moira Announced

During BlizzCon, Blizzard Entertainment had a surprise for all the Overwatch fans and it's about a new character. A new support hero . . . err, heroine is being added to the roster, who is actually more of an antagonist as she works for Talon organization and the 26th playable character of the game. Her name is Moira and she is great for both recovery and attack.

Overwatch Support Hero Moira Announced

With a long-range beam called Coalescence, she can drain the life-force of her opponents and then using that energy, she can heal her teammates with biotic spray. This happens to be Moira's main attack. Moira's "Fade" power allows her to teleport from situations if she is cornered but it also is a great mobility option for the hero even if it has a short range. Players may find this a bit identical to Reaper's Wraith Form and who knows; maybe they're even connected somehow. Just saying!

There is a short clip below that focuses on her motives and few takes from her gameplay which you better take a look at while we talk more about her.

After a while, it might seem that she might be a bold retake on the sniper Ana but whether or not it is true, she will heal you up if she is on your team or give you some serious damage if you are on the other side of her allegiance by sending out her bouncing "Biotic Orbs". You can even compare her to a more hostile version of Symmetra but still, she has superior mobility and long-range for attacks.

Then there comes her Ultimate attack, which is a massive beam of energy blast to wipe out the enemies on your way. So far, the character is full of great features and it will take people some time to figure out how to best use it as well as pointing out whatever flaw she has.

Blizzard's team-based multiplayer online first-person shooter Overwatch is available to play on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. If you're even a little bit of interested about this new support character, you should just go ahead and give it a try already. If you are a support main, you're probably gonna end up loving play as Moira and if you are not, still, chances are you will appreciate having her on your team.
