I thought we had a thread on this already but cant find one

Anyway Overwatch is the new Blizzard FPS for PC / PS4 / Xbox One

Quote:
Overwatch is a highly stylized team-based shooter set on earth in the near future. Every match is an intense multiplayer showdown pitting a diverse cast of soldiers, mercenaries, scientists, adventurers, and oddities against each other in an epic, globe-spanning conflict.


Trailer (from a year back)



Gameplay trailer



Metacritic has it at either 90 for PS4 or 94 for PC

Jim Sterling's review : http://www.thejimquisition.com/overwatch-review/

I had a go at the beta a few weeks back and it seemed fun (much more fun than Battleborn which seems to be going for the same group of players)

Is this online multiplayer only or is there a single player campaign? It does look interesting but it also looks like one of those games where everyone else will be better than me.

You can play against bots if you like. My manager has this and he's not actually all that impressed. Says the beta for the new Unreal Tournament is much better.

Oh yeah, new Unreal Tournament. I'd forgotten about that. I think I shall play Doom for now and wait for that.

I put a fair wedge of time into it on the final beta, and was impressed enough to pre-purchase the full game, which I've been enjoying very much since it was released.

It's fantastic fun, demands proper team play, but generally speaking you can get a good game with randoms. Far better if you're teamed up with chums though.

Seems quite simple on the surface but there's a lot of tactical depth to it, the nature of the game changes completely depending on what characters your enemy are running with, so the entire feel of the game can change more than once in the space of a single round if people are switching their characters around enough.

Typical Blizzard shine, it looks and sounds absolutely gorgeous, and they've hit 60FPS on both consoles as well.

Blizzard have promised that all future content for the game will be free, with only cosmetic items costing further cash on top of the purchase price of the game.

There's also no progression system in terms of gear/power ups/weapons, levelling up just unlocks loot boxes which contain only cosmetic items. So a Level 1 character has exactly the same power level, weapon loadout, abilities etc as a Level Capped character.

Eurogamer gave it an 'Essential' today - http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2016- ... tch-review

My thoughts: It'd be great if it was a movie, shame about the game. It IS TF2 with a bunch of different characters. Although this one includes a character with an assault rifle at least.

If you are interested they have had a number of 'free' weekends for it (around one a month or so) where you can just download the game and play for free

The current one was this weekend (just passed) - but does not finish until midnight PST (so early hours of tomorrow morning our time) which means you can download it now - play it for free

You pair of bellends. I keep mentioning it and you just say it's like Team Fortress which is free.

Or that might be Gregg.

Super fun game, I like to play with my friends who are all ridiculously high ranked but they get mad because they can't play ranked with me because I'm unranked because I never play the placement matches.

You have never mentioned it to me. As clearly from above, I'd be potentially interested.

Using the search function, I find me suggesting it once and getting ignored, Ian wanting to only play muslims, and you saying "Overwatch is just like TF2 isn't it? That's free, just play that"

Dave is, of course, correct.

Apart from me wanting to play Muslims, which I’m assuming is Dave talk for Rainbow Six: Siege.

No one wants to play Tactical Nut Shot 3 in coop on PS4. This makes me sad.

Currently part of the Humble monthly sub. £8.37.

Looks like it's going to be a lot of fun!

We need some more joined up thinking cause we got mangled a lot and it’s no fun when you’re pinned into your spawn point.

I think it would be prudent to work out what our characters do to start with. Let's walk before we can run.

We did have some good games. There were a couple of games where we were facing a wall of fire yet still managing to inch forward to the objective - those were great.

T'is the first competitive online game I've enjoyed for the game rather than just for the people I'm playing with for a very long time.
