Overwatch's Next Map Is Blizzard World, A Tribute To Blizzard Games

04 November 2017

There were three huge announcements given for Overwatch at BlizzCon, Blizzard Entertainment's yearly conference, this year.

My first thought during the Overwatch reveals at BlizzCon 2017 today was: "Oh my God, I need this to be a real place".

"Moira's biotic abilities enable her to contribute healing or damage in any crisis". There's no release date set for the latest Overwatch hero yet, though it's likely she'll arrive with the Blizzard World map.

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.

'Multiple Parties Down' After Shooting at Colorado Walmart, Police Say
Thornton police say 47-year-old Scott Ostrem was arrested Thursday morning, about 14 hours after he fled the store in a vehicle . Police spotted the vehicle and followed it, eventually stopping Ostrem in his Mitsubishi Mirage and taking him into custody.

Slinking into the shadows, the public believed her to have retired, but Moira would continue on with her work, creating weapons and technologies for Blackwatch whilst keeping her employment there a secret. We got a look at a new character, map, and a moving Reinhardt animated short. This skill is called Bionic Grasp, and the damaging energy can also heal Moira and restore her 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. She will take a support role in the game thanks to her biotic abilities that allow her to heal or deal damage. Her ultimate looks like a combined super-beam that heals all allies caught in it, or drains all enemies.

It's all very epic, as you'll certainly be able to see below, alongside Moira's introduction, a few screenshots showing her in action, and the introduction of a new map themed after a Blizzard theme park.
