Blizzard has released new gameplay footage video of its new Overwatch game that is currently under development providing a first true look at what you can expect from the video game.
Overwatch was first at BlizzCon, in November 2014 and has been design edit provide a cooperative game offering players various “heroes”, each equipped with their own abilities and roles within a team.
Blizzard’s Overwatch game is similar in design to Valve’s awesome Team Fortress 2 title, but Blizzard has also taken inspiration from MOBAs for its map mechanics and character designs. The footage below has been unedited and provide a first look at complete matches.
“Overwatch will feature squad-based combat with two opposing teams of six players each. Similar to a multiplayer online battle arena game, players choose one of several hero characters, each with their own unique abilities and role classes.
The four character roles include: offense-oriented characters with high speed and attack but low defense, defense-oriented characters meant to form choke points for enemies, support characters that provide buffs for their allies such as healing and other boosts, and tank characters that have a large amount of armor and hit points to withstand enemy attacks. Players can switch between characters in-game following deaths, which is encouraged by the game’s overall design.”
