New Overwatch comic Doomfist: Masquerade A new Overwatch comic is now available, and it’s a doozy that brings us up to present day. In Masquerade, we see the events immediately after Doomfist breaks out of prison, as shown in his introductory animated short. From there, it’s a whirlwind of information as Doomfist attempts to reconnect with Talon…with mixed results. Not...

Updated: Reinhardt fixes and other Hero changes on the Overwatch PTR It appears that Overwatch players who are unhappy about Reinhardt — specifically, complaining that some of his abilities are bugged or aren’t working at all — have a ray of hope. Jeff from the Overwatch team (aka Game Director Jeff Kaplan) has posted to the forums saying that the dev team is investigating these issues,...




Know Your Lore: Doomfist, Talon, and Overwatch Talon has had a presence in Overwatch since the debut of the game. During the height of the Overwatch organization’s popularity, many attempts were made to eliminate Talon as a threat. These efforts resulted in the death of Overwatch agent Gérard Lacroix, courtesy of his wife Amélie. Brainwashed by Talon, she returned to the organization...

New Overwatch assault map Horizon Lunar Colony now on PTR Lore hints from earlier this week have paid off — a new Assault map, Horizon Lunar Colony, is coming to Overwatch soon on all platforms, and is now available for play on the PTR. The new map features some great high ground options for snipers, as well as good flanking routes and low ground alternatives....

Overwatch’s Story: Everything you need to know Overwatch is about to celebrate its first anniversary! Since its initial release, Overwatch has captivated millions of players with its fast paced, engaging gameplay. Hand in hand with that gameplay however is a cast of characters and a story that has captured the hearts and imaginations of both players and non-players alike. While you don’t...

We want these LEGO versions of Overwatch weapons With a big enough collection of LEGOs — and enough time and determination — anything is possible. Like recreating an arsenal of video game weaponry completely out of LEGO bricks. Or creating an arsenal of Overwatch video game weaponry completely out of LEGO bricks. But we don’t have that kind of LEGO collection or that...




Why is Overwatch so much fun to watch? I haven’t played Overwatch in months. I’ve watched people play Overwatch almost every single day. This is one of my favorites, but I’ll watch almost anybody play this game. As long as they’re not being jerks, I can pretty much enjoy just about any match, any composition, any PoV. Even Lucio’s, which I didn’t expect...

Sombra
Know Your Lore: Overwatch’s Sombra origins When the Omnic Crisis hit the world, Overwatch was there to respond and eventually defeat the Omnic threat. But what of the people that weren’t heroes – those who lost their homes, their family and friends, everything they ever knew? What of those left behind? Some quietly tried to rebuild their lives and their futures…and...



New Overwatch event Halloween Terror is now live Remember when we speculated about that Overwatch Halloween event earlier today? Halloween Terror is now here and available for play. Similar to the Summer Games event, Halloween Terror features new loot boxes with event-themed skins. However, all skins in the Halloween loot boxes can also be purchased with credits, just in case your favorite doesn’t...

Is there a character you hate, but can’t stop playing? I hate Reaper in Overwatch. Every single phrase he can unlock is so unironically dark and brooding, and all his skins follow suit. He’s so edgy Genji could wield him. He doesn’t really have any options that are tongue-in-cheek, like Soldier:76’s Evel Knievel getup, or off the wall like Junkrat’s scarecrow skin. From the top of...

New Overwatch comic Ana: Old Soldiers Well this is different — it looks like we get more than one Overwatch comic with the introduction of the new hero Ana Amari. Ana: Old Soldiers picks up years after Legacy left off, after Jack Morrison and Gabriel Reyes died and Overwatch was disbanded. Written by Michael Chu and illustrated by Bengal, Old Soldiers...

Overwatch veterans: Reinhardt, Torbjörn and Mercy origins When Overwatch was first created to combat the Omnic Crisis, the general consensus was that only the best of the best would do for the team. Notable heroes from all over the world would take part. In the United States, that meant John “Jack” Morrison and Gabriel Reyes, two members of an elite, classified soldier...

Overwatch’s McCree and the Deadlock Gang The Overwatch team was extraordinarily clever during the height of their popularity after the Omnic Crisis was brought to an end. Using their resources and connections, they dismantled plenty of underground criminal organizations. Part of this was simply being experts in their fields — and a lot of it was due to using the knowledge...

Know Your Lore: Overwatch’s ongoing story Overwatch — the game being released on May 24 — doesn’t really have an overarching story. It’s not that type of game:  it’s a multiplayer first-person shooter, not an RPG. But Overwatch, the team highlighted in the title, certainly has a lot of story going for it. And that’s what makes Overwatch interesting. Sure, the...

Zarya and Overwatch’s second Omnic Crisis Other than the Overwatch agents that were directly involved with taking down the omnic uprising and saving the world, no one knows what really started the Omnic Crisis. However, reports were pretty specific with their references, pointing out that Overwatch took out the “force behind the uprising,” rather than simply wiping the omnics out. Given...

Widowmaker
Objective complete: Widowmaker, Talon, and Recall Overwatch was officially disbanded thirty years after its founding, after allegations of corruption and gross negligence — as well as infighting between the troops — slowly tore it apart. Yet there were those within its ranks who sought to reform the organization, despite the fact that any Overwatch activity had been deemed illegal after the...
