The next Overwatch map is a Blizzard theme park called Blizzard World

If you didn't get a chance to see BlizzCon 2017's opening ceremony live - or you just want to revisit the gorgeous opening cinematic for the new World of Warcraftexpansion, Battle for Azeroth, or the animated short for Overwatch's Reinhardt, "Honor and Glory", we've got you covered. Her name is Moira and she is the latest support class hero for the popular FPS game. 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.

In accordance with BlizzCon, Blizzard updated its official site with more information on the upcoming Overwatch hero.

However, the reveal trailer has shown that she apparently has ties to both Talon and Reaper, and is possibly the person who stitched Gabriel Reyes back together to create the smokey, psychotic killer that Reaper is today.

Along with BlizzardWorld, we also saw a brand new hero, Moira.

Biotic Grasp: 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. And finally, Lucio isn't the only support hero with serious moves: Moira's "Fade" power gives her some really nice mobility options for getting into position or out of trouble. The new hero, called Moira, is the 26th playable character to be added to the game.

Blizzard World will be a hybrid map, which players will have to attack or defend a control point and then also escort or stop a payload.
