"Moira" is the new support healer on her way to Overwatch, offering a mix of damage-dealing and healing abilities. Of course, with all of the research she's done, this ability also allows her to use her right hand for a long-range beam weapon, sapping health from enemies which both heals Moira and replenishes the biotic energy she sends out to allies. It's not entirely clear how her abilities work, but it seems that she will function kind of like Zenyatta in that players will need to swap between damage and healing.

Shooting reported in New York, NYPD takes one person in custody
He said he then heard seven to eight shots and then police pointing a gun at a man kneeling on the pavement. At least two bodies could be seen lying motionless on the path beneath tarps near mangled bicycles.

Furthermore, Blizzard showed off a new animated cinematic for Reinhardt, one of its more popular tank heroes, focussing on his backstory and his reasons for joining Overwatch. Using her left hand, she can give out biotic energy and heal allies that stand in front of her. 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. Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan outright joked her name should be spelled "OPAF". The map, titled Blizzard world, will be a theme park that is based off of the various IPs from Blizzard. The PTR will feature the map soon, but you'll have to wait a while before being able to play with it on live servers. Reinhardt used to be full of daring-do and an obsession with glory, but like the rest of Overwatch's team, his history has colored his motives for being a part of the team and rejoining it for its latest endeavors.
