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

My first thought during the Overwatch reveals at BlizzCon 2017 today was: "Oh my God, I need this to be a real place". Able to alter DNA at a cellular level, it looked like one of the best steps to stamping out diseases and disorders that had ever been researched, but her peers weren't happy with the findings. Moira is a support hero, offering both damaging and offensive options with her abilities, transitioning between two attack types: a yellow, healing attack, and a purple, damaging attack. Blizard has already launched the hero page for Moira which details her skills. "Once she's charged Coalescence, Moira can save multiple allies from elimination at once or finish off weakened enemies".

Biotic Grasp - Using her left hand, Moira expends biotic energy to heal allies in front of her. There's also a new animated short exploring the origins of hammer-wielding tank, Reinhardt. Her ultimate deals heavy damage to enemies while simultaneously healing allies in its path. Moira is coming to PTR before releasing on consoles and PC for everyone at a later date.

"Moira's biotic abilities enable her to contribute healing or damage in any crisis".

40M Kidde fire extinguishers recalled due to potential activation failure

The supposed family members also claim they took away the man's vehicle keys earlier in the day. Aerial video from the scene showed an armored vehicle and hostage negotiators at the school.

Mopar Releases 200+ Products for New Wrangler #TENSEMA17
And in case you haven't noticed, it looks essentially the same as the current Jeep Wrangler . In addition, the Wrangler will get more fuel-efficient powertrain options.

Fade is a fairly simple ability that sees Moira teleport a short distance.

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

The new map is Blizzard World, a zany theme park map based on all of Blizzard's properties.

Blizzard World will be half assault, half payload.
