Gameplay Trailer

The Mini-Pixar Movie Trailer

"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…

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…

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."

Overwatch hype!
#2

Looks OK but it reminds me a lot of TF2… lol


#3

Yea like a hugely updated and varied TF2, can’t complain about that.


#4

Good luck to ya Blizzard. Valve pretty much has the class-based MP genre on lockdown right now, but it never hurts to make an effort into toppling the kingpin.


#5

Maybe this will speed up TF3… well…one can always hope!


#6

I don’t know why, but I just can’t get into Blizzard products recently. The only franchise I don’t believe they completely trashed is Stracraft 2 and even that, well the most recent Zerg expansion really sucked from a narrative standpoint. I really hope Blizzard changes it’s direction because right now it’s becoming the next EA 2.0 :frowning:


#7

I think Ubisoft has that covered!


#8

It looks fun and I’m sure it’ll have the Blizzard polish. Big fan of TF2 and there hasn’t been many other games that have reached its quality. If any company can match Valve, it’s Blizzard!

Turtle Rock owns them both, though :wink:


#9

I do find it ironic that Valve, the creators of Portal and Team Fortress, are beaten by Blizzard in creating a portal gun based hero in a Team Fortress kind of game :stuck_out_tongue:


#10

This actually looks really interesting to me! I hope it pans out!


#11

I watched it.I can say i want to play it.But i’m pretty sure i’ll play it for like a week each day less.Till i forget about it after 1 month :stuck_out_tongue: .

And yeah while i was watching the trailer and seeing one of the heroes hitting his sentry gun to build it,it instantly reminded me of TF2.

But no it can not surprass Valve because Blizzard never wants to make completely F2P games.Even hearthstone,the one who had opened the most packs and got the most cards will win.


#12

i LOVE seeing companys trying something new…come on nintendo quit beating dead horses


#13

I’m veeeeery curious about the “gunslinger” on the left :smiley:


#14

Well…Overwatch is the TF2 of Blizzard…Heroes of the Storm is an attempt to redeem themselfs for not creating a Dota game when people where asking them to.Hearthstone came from another card game.Magicka i think?


#15

They do have Heroes of the Storm, which is a Defense of the Ancients kind of game.


#16

meaning they arent making the same genra over and over again.


#17

Thanks for sharing!


#18

Well yeah.I’m just saying that they are not making new ideas.They are taking successful ideas and making them into their own games.Don’t get me wrong.I like it.


#19

nobody is making new ideas


#20

Battlefield Heroes HEROES! xD All I am thinking of when I see this! Oh! And Power Rangers!
