Blimey it's a new Overwatch map, hero and animated short

The biggest of those is a brand new hero that's coming to the game in the near future: Moira. 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. Capable of healing allies and dealing huge damage to enemies, she's a force we're very eager to cause chaos with when she arrives in the near future.

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. Blizzard has provided a deeper breakdown of Moira's abilities and backstory on the official Overwatch site, however, is yet to announce a release date. If you're reading this from Blizzcon, you can check her out on the show floor with no limits. Her name's Moira and I haven't played her yet but - as an unrepentant support main - I already love her.

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. To see her trailer, look further up the article.

The map is a hybrid map, meaning it's part assault and part payload like Numbani.

The new map, Blizzard World, is a theme park packed with references to every other Blizzard property, from StarCraft to Lost Vikings. Continuing to expand on the game's multiplayer content, a new playable character and multiplayer map have been showcased. Whether you were hoping for a new animated short, a new map, or a new hero to join the cast, Blizzard came prepared by showing off one of each.
