We've got a lot to say about the latest Overwatch hero to make the roster, and the newest addition is more than a little dark with her controversial past. The latest healer is now live for the hit FPS from Blizzard as she finally leaves the haven that is known as the Public Test Realm (PTR).

Before you get started on trying out the healer that packs a mean punch, there's a few things you should know about her. We go into detail about the latest character in our First Impressions piece, which can be seen here, but the scientist with "unethical" standards makes a big splash onto the scene and for more than one reason.

Not only is she incredibly powerful (think Reaper meets Symmetra, with a healthy dose of Zenyatta) in her own right, but her past is more than a little sketchy. Her ties within Talon and the Blackwatch make her formidable, as the original Overwatch program saw the hyper-intelligent geneticist's methods too morally inept to support, "Overwatch held back the pace of scientific discovery for decades. They believed my methods were too radical, too controversial."

But more than her backstory, her playstyle is incredible. Here's a breakdown of her abilities:


Using her left hand, Moira expends biotic energy to heal allies in front of her. Her right hand fires a long-range beam weapon that saps enemies' health, healing Moira and replenishing her biotic energy.


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. FADE

Moira quickly teleports a short distance.


Moira channels a long-range beam that both heals allies and bypasses barriers to damage her enemies.

With her dualistic nature and incredible healing abilities, Moira is the healer that many support players have been begging for. But now Overwatch fans can see first hand what she brings to the table. Moira is now live for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
