Looks interesting.

Also, Lost Vikings were just announced for Heroes of the Storm and it goes closed Beta in January, I'm currently in the alpha for it and it is probably the best MOBA I've played cause it just gets to the point of team battles that it is a lot of fun pvp action. No one can stop my Murky! NO ONEEEEEEEE!

I can't wait to play as the Lost Vikings, I need me some Olaf action!

Apparently Overwatch is taken from the cancelled "Titan" MMO-FPS.

It's great to see Blizzard creating such a variety of games. They've updated their installer as hub, which is very nice considering there will be a FPS on there in the near future, hopefully. I wonder if they will ever make another MMO. The sheer amount of excitement and drama that World of Warcraft brought to gaming will probably never be outdone. I just wonder if they could do it again.

I don't play MOBAs, but this looks like it has a ton of variety to it as a shooter.

Overwatch is a reworked version of the PVP portions of Blizzard's Titan, the long-in-development MMO that was overhauled in mid-2013. Despite reports earlier this year that Titan had been cancelled, the game actually morphed into Overwatch last year, according to a person familiar with the project.

It looks like they've kept at least one of Titan's class names—Reaper—which we reported on last month.


"Overwatch is our take on a vibrant, near-future universe with amped-up characters and action-packed team-based gameplay," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. "With every new Blizzard game, we look at our favorite aspects of a genre and put our own spin on things. Our goal with Overwatch is to create an awesome FPS experience that's more accessible to a much wider audience while delivering the action and depth that shooter fans love."

Many people are making the comparison or connection that the game looks like TF2, that's the first impression I got of it as well. But if anything I've had loads of fun with TF2.

But I figured logically, TF2 has a set number of classes and they tend to only upgrade the weapons. With this, the potential amount of 'heroes' they're going to add can be limitless, similar to Heroes of the Storm with tank/support/specialist/dps.

On a side note -- In Heroes of the Storm, murky is indeed awesome. Combined with a good Abathur, you're pretty much an unstoppable duo! But the fact that they're adding any and all characters from each of their franchises makes it even more awesome.

It was funny this one match when I was playing Murky, I was doing so awesome, I was killing and wiping out their bases and then all of a sudden they figured out where my egg was behind the wall, all 5 players kept trying to kill my egg and they didn't care if they were losing! I was like OH SHIT! RUN MURKY RUNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!

Azmodan is probably the best specialist, he drains the cannons ammo so fast and keeps attacking with tons of buffed minions and his laser beam move, when I know I might die, I just use that on them and even if it's 3v1, I might still take someone down lol

Apparently there's a bug with Azmodan and Tassadar.

Azmodan uses his summon minions ultimate and Tassadar shields them, making his minions require hundreds of hits to kill. People are raging over it lolol

Is this effectively Team Fortress 3?

I thought the same thing at first, but then it all came out in the game play trailer. There's more to do in Overwatch. If you want run up walls with a bow and arrow and get healed by an angel; you can.

Apparently, it might be like a FPS MOBA game, it's only 6v6 and it might also be F2P and we will have to buy characters. I think I rather have it we just buy it and they give us free updates!
