A 10 minute video shows a complete match from Overwatch, Blizzard’s forthcoming team-based multiplayer thingy.
The video is from the perspective of master bowman Hanzo, on the attacking team on the King’s Row map, which is apparently a hybrid “Point Capture/Payload” map set in England. It… looks a lot like Team Fortress 2, truthfully, only with a bit more of a focus on freedom of movement. Or, well, freedom of movement with climbing and mantling, instead of having to use grenade jumping or rocket jumping.
Anyway, I’ve waffled on enough. The video can be watched below in full 60fps, and Overwatch itself is due to enter beta in autumn.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
