Overwatch - new Blizzard game

Postby [FnG] N!MRoD » Wed Nov 12, 2014 7:43 pm

For those that have not heard, Blizzard is coming with a new IP. This would be Overwatch.
So new IP and shooter, quite out of their comfort zone.
Looks like a mix of Team Fortrest and a Moba game such as league of legends.
Not expecting anything groundbreaking, Blizzard never does that, though they are good at polishing formulas, so i'll have a look at how this turns out.
One of the ideas they have is that low skilled players should be able to function well too, while not making them overpowered if someone skilled uses them. I think they aim to do that with certain support heroes and tanks. While others will require high skills.

For your viewing pleasure.

I just saw a short video Lazz posted on the Face Box. (facebook.)

Looks intriguing, but ... US$60 ?!?

Are folks playing this? I'm curious....

Hey Torgo

Not me, I played open Beta, it is a fun game, pacing is really good, lots of action. It is quite a good game, maybe even great, but not worth 60 euros, more like 30 maybe 40.
I might grab it once it drops to that. If you ever do, you might wanna have some trusty friends to play with because having drop outs or quitters in your team can ruin your fun. But then again, you got that with any team game.
