OverWatch is Coming!!! OverWatch is Coming!!! If you havn’t heard of Overwatch…WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN??? Ever since it was first announced in November last year, I have been hoping to see this game in action!!!
Blizzard has been keeping the hype train for its upcoming free-to-play shooter, Overwatch, going for several months with regular character reveals. But today, they’ve pushed the hype train right off the rails by including Overwatch as a selectable game in the Battle.net launcher.
Blizzard will also be conducting numerous Beta Test Weekends for a second, wider group of players. These will be for the purpose of testing the server hardware to make ensure “they can withstand the assault.” The Beta Test Weekends will be available for various parts of the world, and the first one will kick off not long after BlizzCon ends.
Overwatch was debuting with a Pixar-esque introduction video. The game is Blizzard’s first new franchise in 17 years. More recently, the studio release new 1080p gameplay footage featuring the characters Hanzo, McCree, Mercy, and Zenyatta (See all characters HERE). Overwatch does not currently have a release date, but is being developed for Mac and PC.
