Over the past week I have started paying attention to these two games and they both look great. I have watched gameplay from both games and looked at some articles on both games as well. I also know that both games are coming to consoles and that their release dates are fairly close to each other.
I would like to know what people think of both these games, especially from people that got a chance to play one or both of them (I know they both are running or just wrapped up a closed beta).
Some other things I am looking for are differences between the two games. I’ve looked at some wiki pages for both games but the info on those pages seem to focus more on the characters and their abilities rather than overall game mechanics.
From what I can tell so far:
-Battleborn has a progression system where you level your character up within each match; allowing you to upgrade your character’s abilities at each level. It seems to take elements from MOBA’s (I genre I am just starting to learn via Smite)
-Overwatch doesn’t appear to have any kind of progression system but it does seem to emphasize it’s players to play in a role much more than Battleborn (having support players, healers, etc). There also appears to be more synergy between the characters from what I can tell, which would promote more teamwork.
I know we’ve got a bit of time before these games drop but odds are I’ll only be able to pick up one of these. So what are y’alls thoughts?
