    Overwatch first look: Blizzard takes on Team Fortress 2



    - 3 hours ago
    Lastly here's the in Engine trailer of what the game play will be like
    [YT]dushZybUYnM[/YT]
    Here’s a full run down of the shooter, via its official website:
    Fight for the Future
    Overwatch is a team-based shooter where heroes do battle in a world of conflict.
    Welcome to Overwatch
    Soldiers. Scientists. Adventurers. Oddities.
    In a time of global crisis, an international task force of heroes banded together to restore peace to a war-torn world:
    OVERWATCH.
    It ended the crisis and helped to maintain peace in the decades that followed, inspiring an era of exploration, innovation, and discovery. But after many years, Overwatch’s influence waned, and it was eventually disbanded.
    Overwatch is gone… but the world still needs heroes.
    Choose a Hero
    Offense. Defense. Tank. Support.
    Overwatch features a wide array of unique heroes, ranging from a time-jumping adventurer, to an armored, rocket-hammer-wielding warrior, to a transcendent robot monk. Every hero plays differently, and mastering their abilities is the key to unlocking their potential. No two heroes are the same.
    Play Your Role
    Whether you’re engaging in combat on the front line, providing defensive cover with your energy shield, or supporting your allies by amplifying their damage, every hero’s abilities are designed to be effective as part of a team. Learning to utilize your abilities in concert with your teammates’ is the key to victory.
    Team-Based Objectives
    Teams of heroes do battle across the planet. From protecting the secrets of the mysterious Temple of Anubis, to safely escorting an EMP device through King’s Row, the world is your battlefield.

    • Payload - The attacking team’s objective is to move the payload to a delivery point, while the defenders must halt the attackers’ progress until time runs out.
    • Point Capture - Two teams battle over control of the map, one team on offense, the other on defense. The attackers’ goal is to capture critical objectives, while the defenders must maintain control over them until time runs out.
    Twelve different characters are playable, including the teleporting Tracer shown in the screenshot above. For full descriptions and ability showcases of all the game’s characters, visit its official website.

    The website also hosts a gallery of screenshots and gameplay videos.
    A beta is scheduled for 2015, which you can opt-in for Battle.net. If you’re at BlizzCon, the game is playable to attendees.

    Finally a thread . :)

    Saw the trailers, and I am in love. I don't always get into Blizzard games, but this is looks fantastic. Fun, beautiful, with a lot of options.

    Tracer, Hanzo and Winston are my early favorites.

    What did BlizzCon think of Overwatch?

    - 12 hours ago

    I played Blizzard's new FPS Overwatch at BlizzCon five times, the basis for my impressions on the game that I wrote over the weekend. But BlizzCon attendees also had a chance to play a game, and I was curious what they thought of Blizzard's first crack at a multiplayer FPS.

    Overwatch : New Character Info Incoming?

    Posted Feb 26, 2015



    A rather oblique Twitter post has appeared on the Overwatch feed that shows a magazine cover with a shadowed figure on it. While nothing on the cover says anything about Overwatch, the appearance on its Twitter feed and the follow up post by a fan for people to scan the QR-code seems to indicate that a new character will be revealed soon. See what you think!

    Overwatch : Jesse McCree the BAMF Bounty Hunter

    Posted Mar 07, 2015


    Blizzard announced two new playable characters for Overwatch at yesterday’s panel: Zarya, a new female tank with a particle cannon and McCree, a six-shooter carrying bounty hunter who’s clearly not one for modesty given the fact he wears the title of BAMF on his belt buckle. We had a chance to sample McCree for ourselves on the show floor of this year’s PAX East and the character definitely lives up to his chosen moniker.

    Overwatch : Zarya - Sure to be a Fan Favorite

    Posted Mar 10, 2015


    Few things are better than a Russian power lifter. Zarya is an iconic new addition into the Overwatch character list. She packs a massive punch and plays as a solid tank class in the game. At PAX East, Blizzard announced Zarya and McCree to the fans. Zarya is a very solid tank with mid-range attack abilities and some great defensive specials. In the psycho-paced game of Overwatch, Zarya will quickly become a fan favorite despite her low speed.

    Does anyone play their PC games on a big screen tv instead of a monitor? And if so...how does it look? I heard it doesn't look as good....

    Overwatch looks good but I'm still intrigued by that other project by Borderlands creators more.
