Studio Blizzard knows and loves to make good games. How successfully has been a very long time. True, developers are reluctant to risk. All the hits of the last 17 years based on old franchises.
Action cult WoW – for example – there is in the universe of strategies Warcraft. Coined in the early nineties. And this is only one of the cases.
Therefore the presentation of the project Overwatch – a real surprise for those who did not expect anything new from the authors.
Can not say that Blizzard has made a discovery. If we talk about the genre, it is a question of an analogue of Team Fortress 2. Valve Masterpiece here reminds a lot – “cartoon” style, emphasis on team tactics and a lot of heroes with a number of unique abilities.
The names of 4 characters already known: Symmetra, Hanzo, Reinhardt and Tracer. 8 more will be known later. After the release of the list of “wards” significantly expanded. As the number of cards available for battle.
Looks pretty interesting. Trailers Blizzard do not forgotten how.
The beta test will start in early 2015. But most impatient can request a part right now (on the official site Overwatch).
