Blizzard Entertainment's Overwatch

You thought if Blizzard made a new IP, it'd be another strategy game but instead it'll be a first person shooter this time around.







Overwatch will be on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

Release date is unknown but some say will be out before June 21st.

I dislike FPS Multiplayer, but this game looks very interesting to me.

For a multiplayer only game, Blizzard better provide a crap ton of modes to justify that $60 price tag that's for sure. Overwatch looks awesome that I would offer spending hours playing and I would be pretty fricking disappointed if this became another issue like Battlefront.

The console versions, btw, are called Origins Edition and it comes with codes to get free stuff like a pet for WoW, a playable character for Heroes of the Storm, gear for Diablo III, portraits for StarCraft II and a card pack for Hearthstone all Overwatch themed.

Great. Stuff for games I can't even play.

I'm in the beta.

I really haven't been very impressed. It's something like a combination of Team Fortress, with having various classes to choose form, and Quake 3 or UT. The result feels muddled and unfocused. Partly trying to appeal to a casual audience with the Team Fortress style class selection and simplicity while also trying to have an E-sports level learning curve.

I'm not really sure what they're going for with it. It doesn't really feel casual friendly, nor does it feel as E-sport-ish as something like Starcraft 2 or CS:GO.

So I dunno, I don't see it being particularly big.

I don't mind FPS Multiplayer's because i played Quake 3 or UT, But at least with those two those had a offline mode with bots and i'm sure this one won't have that. Something FPS with Multiplayer that are lacking these days.

Even though the game is priced, downloadable maps and characters will be free post launch. Pretty cool of Blizzard actually.

quote:
Perhaps unsurprisingly, I'd like to talk about your big announcement this week - future heroes and maps being introduced as free updates. Are you pleased to see how the community has reacted to the news? It looks very positive from where I'm sitting.

Jeff Kaplan: Yeah, I was super happy that they received the news the right way. It was something that was very challenging for us because at Blizzcon we were so excited to come out and say "Oh my god, here's this game! We made it because we love it and we hope you guys love it, and not only that, but Blizzard are going to be doing a simultaneous release on Xbox One and PlayStation 4." We were really happy with the business model because we feel like it's really good value for people, not only the base edition but the fact that we have this Origins Edition too.

All the heroes were going to be included and as gamers, we thought it was a very straightforward, easy to understand business model. You focus less on the business model and more on the game itself. And we were really not expecting [to be asked] what's going to happen after the game is launched. It takes so much work to ship a game. So there we are at Blizzcon and people were just hammering us and you kind of realise that wow, there's a lot of distrust out in the community, because I think a lot of players have felt like they've been burned in the past. Like, oh god, these games companies are just trying to get so much out of me.

We hadn't figured out what we were going to do yet and people kept asking the question. Suddenly it felt like we were trying to openly avoid that somehow. As soon as we got back after Blizzcon, we needed to get this clarified ASAP, so the community can feel good about what we're doing with this game. I was so happy that collectively the Overwatch team and the Blizzard executive team were able to say that for this game, when we patch in new heroes or a new map, you're going to be able to get it for free. I understand where this player stress comes from and in hindsight, it seems so obvious. I totally get why players had apprehension. It was very nice to put that at ease.


If only EA and Ubisoft felt the same way. Gah.

Because Activision is a such glowing example of a good company.

Isn't Blizzard both developer and publisher of the game? And say Activision is in charge, why would they allow free DLC?

Edit: Oh, so Activision and Blizzard did a merger. Forgot about that. Regardless, it doesn't seem the Activision half is in charge.

You are probably right.

But like car dealerships offering 0% financing. They are probably just putting the price of the free DLC somewhere into the game.

Or, it could be the case that they had to offer free updates because other games like it already do so and they would need to compete. In the end, Activision is going to get there cash somehow.

Or they could just be nice guys.

Everything but the cosmetics will be free so there's still some form of micro payment. Like TF2 with it's hats.

TF2 allows micro-transactions with weapons as well.

See this is why I hate online games. This game looks like it could of been an awesome Borderlands type game, but they had to just make it multiplayer.

Sucks it doesn't have a campaign but at least the game's consumer friendly which is more than anyone can say for most other FPS multiplayers. You know the ones I'm talking about.
