The new hero, Moira, will be a support hero with the ability to switch and synergize between healing and dealing damage. Following a sort of shadowy archetype, including the ability to cast healing beams, teleports, and other bionic skills, Moira is a bit of a hybrid support character.
She then also has basic abilities: Biotic Orb can either heal allies or damage enemies as it bounces around teh map, and Fade gives her the ability to teleport a short distance instantly.
The official Overwatch website lists her as Moira O'Deorain, aged 48 and a Geneticist by occupation. Revealed by Jeff Kaplan at the event, she's come with a brand new trailer, with more details also coming later today. There's no release date set for the latest Overwatch hero yet, though it's likely she'll arrive with the Blizzard World map.More news: Constitution Bench of SC commences hearing on Delhi-Centre governance row

Revealed in all her glory at Blizzcon 2017, you can find footage of Moira's backstory and a selection of her ominous powers in action below. Her ultimate ability, Coalescence, lets her unleash a beam that will heal any allies caught in it, or deal damage to any foes caught inside of it. The map will be on the PTR soon and will go live in early 2018.
