    Re: Overwatch

    As of right now there hasn't been any word if this game will also come to consoles. I'm going to assume that we'll get the answer to that when Blizzcon comes around November.

    Of course I'll update it in case no one here is going to watch it.

    Two months after this question has been asked, I finally can give you a proper answer:

    Yes, according to this article!

    Of course, it's a Gamestop article and they have been known to jump the gun a few times. The official answer will be known tomorrow. But if this is indeed true, that would be awesome!

    Re: Overwatch

    Okay, so Blizzcon stuff is over. I figured I would explain stuff!

    We have three new characters:

    Genji - The Ninja


    "EVEN IF I SACRIFICE MY BODY, I WILL NEVER SACRIFICE MY HONOR."
    The cyborg Genji Shimada has made peace with the augmented body he once rejected, and in doing so, he has discovered a higher humanity.

    As the youngest son of the master of the Shimada ninja clan, Genji lived a life of luxury and privilege. He had little interest in the family's illegal businesses, and although he excelled at and enjoyed his ninja training, he spent most of his time pursuing a playboy lifestyle. Many within the clan considered the carefree Genji to be a dangerous liability, and they resented his father for coddling and protecting him. Following the clan leader's untimely death, Genji's older brother, Hanzo, demanded that Genji take a more active role in their late father's empire. Genji refused, enraging Hanzo. The tension between the brothers built to a violent confrontation that left Genji on the verge of dying.

    Hanzo believed that he had killed his brother, but Genji was rescued by Overwatch and the intervention of Dr. Angela Ziegler. The global security force saw Genji as a potential asset in its ongoing operations to combat the Shimada clan. As Genji's injuries left him clinging to life, Overwatch offered to rebuild his body in exchange for his help. He was put through an extensive process of cyberization, which enhanced his natural speed and agility and augmented his superlative ninja skills. Transformed into a living weapon, Genji single-mindedly set about the task of dismantling his family's criminal empire.

    But as time passed, Genji felt increasingly at war with himself. He was repulsed by the mechanical parts of his body and could not come to grips with what he had become. When his mission was complete, he abandoned Overwatch and wandered the world in search of meaning. He drifted for many years before crossing paths with the omnic monk Zenyatta. Though Genji initially rejected Zenyatta's wisdom, the benevolent omnic would not be deterred. In time, Zenyatta became his mentor, and under the monk's tutelage, Genji reconciled his dual existence as both man and machine. He learned to accept that although he had a cyborg body, his human soul was intact, and he came to see his new form as a gift and a unique strength.

    Now, for the first time in his life, Genji is free. Even he cannot say where his path will ultimately lead


    Mei - The Environmental Scientist

    "OUR WORLD IS WORTH FIGHTING FOR."
    Mei is a scientist who has taken the fight to preserve the environment into her own hands.

    Though many blamed the planet's escalating, unexplained climate phenomena on the advent of new technologies, the rapidly growing omnic population, and drastically increased consumption of resources, the true cause remained unknown. To find a solution, Overwatch established a series of eco-Watchpoints at remote, critical locations worldwide.

    Mei-Ling Zhou was a member of this multiyear initiative. A peerless climatologist, she had introduced cutting-edge innovations in the field of climate manipulation that protected at-risk areas in Asia and beyond. She was assigned to the program's monitoring station at Watchpoint: Antarctica when disaster struck: a sudden, catastrophic polar storm battered the installation and cut it off from the outside world, leaving the facility damaged and the scientists stranded. As their supplies dwindled, they entered cryostasis in a last-ditch effort to survive until a rescue attempt could be made.

    But that rescue never came. It was years later when the team's cryogenics chamber was finally discovered. Mei, still in hibernation, was the only survivor. The world Mei awoke to had gone through considerable changes: Overwatch was no more, the serious climate issues had worsened, and none of the eco-Watchpoints were in operation. Any clues that they had uncovered were lost.

    Mei has decided to continue her work on her own. Equipped with a portable version of her climate-manipulation technology, she travels around the world, hoping to re-establish the eco-network and track down the causes of the threats to the planet's ecosystem.


    D.VA - The Former Gamer Turned Overwatch

    “I PLAY TO WIN.”
    D.Va is a former professional gamer who now uses her skills to pilot a state-of-the-art mech in defense of her homeland.

    Twenty years ago, South Korea was attacked by a colossal omnic monstrosity that rose from the depths of the East China Sea. The massive, lumbering construct caused catastrophic damage to coastal cities before it was driven back beneath the waves. In response, the South Korean government developed a mechanized armored drone unit, called MEKA, to protect urban environments in future engagements with the omnic threat.

    The government's fears proved to be well founded, as a disturbing pattern of attacks emerged. Every few years, the monstrosity would rise from the sea to assault South Korea and its neighbors. The omnic learned from these encounters, often reconfiguring itself in a different form and appearing with new weapons and capabilities. Each incident ended in a stalemate, with the monstrosity defeated but not destroyed.

    As the omnic continued to adapt, it eventually disrupted MEKA's drone-control networks, forcing the military to place pilots in the mechs. Scrambling to find suitable candidates, the government turned to the country's professional gamers, who possessed the necessary reflexes and instincts to operate the mechs' advanced weapons systems. Top stars were drafted, including reigning world champion Hana Song, also known as "D.Va." Famous for her elite skills, D.Va was a fierce competitor who played to win at all costs, and she had a well-earned reputation for showing no mercy to her opponents.

    Seeing her new mission as a game, D.Va fearlessly charges into battle alongside the rest of her MEKA unit, ready to spring to her nation's defense at a moment's notice. Recently, she has begun to stream combat operations to her adoring fans, and her growing following has turned her into a global icon.


    Those are the characters that are added. There is also one new arena added - Hollywood

    There's going to be comics and cartoon shorts that will continue telling us who these characters are.

    The game will be for both consoles and PC but it will not be cross platform play because the developers fear that the PC players will have an advantage. The game will not be for Mac (Boo!)

    It'll be $40, PC only which will include all the heroes with a Widowmaker skin bonus for the pre-orders.

    Overwatch Origins - $60 for all systems. You'll get all the heroes, bonus skins and a Baby Winston pet for WoW.

    Collector's Edition - $130 for all systems which will include what you get with the Origins, plus the soundtrack, an artbook and a Soldier 76 statue.

    Does the game feel balanced, or are there nothing but Winston and Hanzos running around everywhere?

    I didn't know this game existed. Oh I love the line in the trailer when the guy says we are justice. This has intrigued me to buy it someday. I like games like this.

    I like the characters designs. Sadly, I'm wary when it comes to FPSs.

    Aww, don't be for this one. You should watch some of the gameplay videos, it's really not that bad of a game to get behind despite it being a first--person shooter.

    You should totally get it! From the three day access I had for beta, I had such a huge blast. They're also going to keep adding DLC (which I believe they said will be free all the time) so there's always that to look forward to as well.

    While you could literally have a team of the same character (I've had matches where I'm fighting nothing but Genji or Mei) it still has a lot of balance.

    I believe this video explains a lot about all that stuff

    Re: Overwatch



    For some reason I didn't update this thread with the skins that were added to the game after beta came back so here's all the skins that each character has. They're still working/designing concepts for costumes so not every character has the same amount of costumes.

    Info

    Couple new skins that were added just recently, a new level, and a few notes!

    Yeah, there's certain skins I'd like to see more for Mercy and Widowmaker.

    For some reason, they're gaga for Gothic look. I don't mind it, some of them are cool.

    I had a phase where I was playing Counterstrike and little bit of Unreal Tournament, so I don't think FPSs are all bad. Anyways, I watched a couple of videos, and I like variety of the character abilities that goes beyond gun selection.

    The PS4 is my only option right now, but playing FPSs with a gamepad is awkward to me, especially those of the faster-paced variety. My PC can't play modern games.

    On the other hand, Blizzard games have longevity that is rare in the game industry. Hopefully the game will still be available and supported by the time I get a capable enough PC.

    Re: Overwatch

    Well, you can now pre-order the game, and you'll get an access code for its beta that will open May 2nd. So from that day all the way til the 23rd, you can play the beta for whatever version of the game you're interested in. Check it out if you're definitely interested in it. It is a very fast-paced shooter and since you're already liking some of the stuff it's showing, that's a plus!

    If not interested now and won't be even after release, Blizzard will still heavily support it. They've made various announcements that they're going to have plenty of free downloadable content such as skins, new characters, and arenas. It's really pay once and enjoy what you get from it!

    I know I'm trying my hardest to push this game into everyone's faces, I'm just doing it so I have more people to play with besides my brother and my Warcraft guild

    Any reasons why I should pick this over Battleborn? They're coming out around the same, both are FPS with Pixar-ish graphics.

    Does Battleborn create animated shorts for each of their characters?


    The first of the series just got shown today: RECALL


    And in case anyone is trying to see who those additional "Overwatch-ers" are at the end:
