Gamers looking forward to the launch of the upcoming Overwatch game that is currently still under development by Blizzard, may be interested to know that a leaked advertising campaign from the IGN gaming website has indicated that the launch date could be May 24th 2016.
The advertising material was spotted by Reddit user ‘Deadpoolthegreat’ who quickly grabbed a screenshot of the advert before it was hastily removed from the IGN website by the sites developers.
As you can see from the advertising campaign pictured below it seems the new Overwatch game will be launching on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in a few months time on May 24th, 2016. To remind yourself of the gameplay from Overwatch, ahead of its launch check out the trailer below.
Overwatch features squad-based combat with two opposing teams of six players each. Players choose one of several hero characters, each with their own unique abilities and role classes. The four character roles include: offense characters with high speed and attack but low defense, defense characters meant to form choke points for enemies, support characters that provide buffs and debuffs for their allies and enemies respectively (such as healing or speed alterations), and tank characters that have a large amount of armor and hit points to withstand enemy attacks and draw fire away from teammates. Players can switch between characters in-game following deaths, which is encouraged by the game’s overall design.
