Blizzard added the 26th hero to Overwatch’s roster today, named Moria. She is now available to all players on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. According to Blizzard, Moria is a “brilliant geneticist who pursues scientific discovery unburdened by ethics”, and it shows.
Moria’s main role is a healer, but she does have a few damaging attacks. Her leading ability is Biotic Grasp, allowing her to left hand to expend “biotic energy” to heal allies in front of her. While her right hand is more of a weapon, which saps a enemies’ health, healing Moira and replenishing her biotic energy with a long-range beam weapon.
You can check out the rest of Moria’s abilities below:
- 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
- Moira quickly teleports a short distance
- Moira channels a long-range beam that both heals allies and bypasses barriers to damage her enemies
Overwatch is having a free weekend event, which starts tomorrow on November 17th and runs through the 20th on all platforms. Moria’s release is just in time for this event, so any new players of Overwatch during the free weekend, can try out this new Hero.
