30 Minutes of Overwatch Awesomeness
We are getting more and more information about new upcoming game from Blizzard, Overwatch. Today we have three videos to show you.
The tank mode has a jump. Less important modes include turning into a sentry gun and back, giving Bastion vulnerable periods while it’s switching. The trade-off for this is being able to make entire fields of fire no-go zones for the enemy team. Self-repair lets this continue indefinitely while the tank mode acts as a combination of the heavy firepower of the sentry gun and the manoeuvrability of the ‘recon’ mode.
Zarya’s tanklike in a whole other way, absorbing damage, moving slowly and carrying a large, uh, particle cannon. The synergy of her abilities for keeping herself and team-mates alive and dishing out damage. It’s obscenely powerful to a degree that most in the game aren’t. Usually they’ll be good for taking out 3-4 enemies in quick succession, but a well placed Graviton Surge will block off whole areas of the map or catch entire teams in easily AoEable piles.
S76 has a machine gun with an underslung rocket launcher, and the ability to run fast. Every other character in the game just seems to have far more imagination in their design, either by weapon, movement or both. Pharah can fly and has rockets implanted in her chest. Tracer can teleport. Even Sniper-trope Widowmaker has a grappling hook to move around the level.
