This morning Game Director Jeff Kaplan took to YouTube to discuss some hot topics circulating around the Overwatch community.
During the World of Overwatch panel at BlizzCon 2015, Bill Petras (the Overwatch artistic director) confirmed that there would in fact be a gay character in Overwatch, and Chris Metzen confirmed that it wouldn't just be one.
Last week we saw a Wanted poster of a pair of criminals from Overwatch without much else than their sketchy mugshots to go on.
Earlier today, the official Overwatch twitter posted a new picture in the style of a wanted poster, presumably to showcase an upcoming hero.
After varied announcements, including the promised information on the next World of Warcraft expansion, there's a lot of excitement surrounding this year's Gamescom convention.
The recently teased new playable character in Overwatch gets his official page today.
I have to admit I was a little surprised to see Overwatch's latest news release about an attack on Watchpoint: Grand Mesa, pretty much because the news report came from the town I live in, and that Watchpoint is located on the mountain range across the valley from the mountain I live on.
Zarya's character design alone won a lot of hearts when she was first announced at PAX East this year.
We're starting to get a picture of how the various characters in Overwatch will play in combat. Sure, we knew the character abilities before, but each of the gameplay previews shows those abilities in action rather than just in the abstract. It's one thing to be told how McCree or Mercy will act in a match and what their weapons can do, but it's quite another to see them actually taking sides in battle and working with and against the other characters.
Playing McCree in Overwatch seems like it should be pretty simple, in concept -- he's a man with a gun.
