Overwatch, new FPS from Blizzard


(Dean) #1

So Blizzard announced there new game “Overwatch”.

Seems to be a futuristic first person shooter. It looks very similar to team fortress… Thoughts?

EDIT: Beta signup and game website can be found here: http://eu.battle.net/overwatch/en/

@Easy has described this as “Shadowrun on acid”

Looks like an excellent attempt at the FPS genre from Blizzard. Looks like such a good quality game too. Kotaku claims this is a reworked version of Blizzard’s Titan MMO:

Just about to post about it, looks nice, should be a fun game to play.

I for one am excited for this game. I loved the old team fortress, it was what i played before halo:ce and other online games. I felt that TF2 disappointed to no end and still does. So i hope this game turns out well. Blizzard games are always made to a high quality, and the gameplay from the preview looked really simple, user friendly and fun.

Overwatch panel is on at the minute, some interesting stuff, they’re currently going through all the heros.

I wanted to see it but i couldn’t find the panel. Was it on twitch or through the blizzcon ticket?


(Dean) #8

Would have been on the Blizzcon ticket. I’ll upload the vod later.

Blizzcon ticket but i had a stream for it for free.

This looks sick!

Widowmaker, a sniper with a fucking zip line? I’m in.

With all the abilities I can see this being so good to watch and play.

Hinting that it could possibly be released on console too. Looks sicks, Shadowrun like, I was a huge fan of shadowrun, this has me hyped.


(Sam Hather) #12

Me too, Shadowrun was absolutely class.

Looks so good.

I am soooo exciiited for this. Looks like a cross between Shadow run, firefall and tf2. Absolutely brilliant! Gonna take some crazy balancing though.


(Adam) #14

Oh man this looks amazing. As a huge Shadowrun and TF2 fan I absolutely cannot wait. Pretty much every character looks fun and unique, which is more than you can say for most class based shooters. I might actually drop TF2 for this when it releases.

Can already say I’ll probably be maining Pharah and Tracer.


(Peter Woodberry) #15

Is it gonna be 6v6?


(Dean) #16

Yeah it is. We will have a few articles up soon.


(Adam) #17

Starting my Tracer crossplay now

That’s exactly what I thought.
