Overwatch

Post by Kaltenberg » Fri Nov 07, 2014 9:41 pm

It's out now. PC, PS4, Xbox One. It's good.

OP:

http://us.battle.net/overwatch/en/ (scroll down for beta sign-up)

It looks pretty great, if it plays as well as it shows, it might just get me back into competitive online shooters. <divax>

Team, objective based shooter. Play as a wide range of heroes with diverse skills and roles (feels somewhere between Dota and TF2). Lots of mobility.

Danny O'Dwyer is giving a good run-down of it as he plays and finds out more.
- Impressive character diversity, typical Blizzard accessibility makes them easy to learn, but loads of roles & ways to play each.

- 4 class types. Assault, Tank, Support & Defender. One game mode similar to Hardpoint from COD, the other Payload from TF2.

- I haven't had that much fun playing a multiplayer FPS in years. Reminded me of Week 1 Team Fortress 2. VERY Excited to play more.

- And yes you can swap Heroes (that's the term they use) at any stage at the spawn area. All heroes open to all teams.

- Yes @EuanDewar you can have all players on the same team be the same player. No limits. Though it's probably a bad tactic.

- No @bilalsq1, we played on PC. No console stuff here. No word on F2P, but I'd be surprised if it wasn't post TF2.

- The 2 maps we played weren't too big @wolferey. Sort of like most TF2 maps. Big enough. But not symmetrical. Lots of height to play with too

- No @onimonkii there was no leveling or unlocks at all during the rounds. Blizzard are hinting at big metagame stuff, but we saw none of it

- Yes @Jimbozu it totally plays like the gameplay trailer. Very frantic, but very tight. The speed/actually balance is actually pretty amazing

- Yes @MustafaRaadMD cooldowns on most of the abilities. No mana. No unlocks as far as we saw, but the Ult has to be charged obviously.

I'll invite you to groups next time I see you on. Joined one of your games before but you left before the end so presumably didn't see my quadrakill play of the game against your team <grim> <roll>
