Blizzard Reveals New FPS Game ‘Overwatch’

World of Warcraft developer Blizzard has revealed their first new IP in 17 years, a PC multiplayer first-person shooter called Overwatch. 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.

Teams of six will fight in futuristic arenas, “from the hologram-lit streets of London to a bazaar in the shadows of a high-tech Egyptian pyramid”, explains Blizzard. The games main characters are called heroes and 12 were revealed ranging from a time-jumping adventurer, to an armored, rocket-hammer-wielding warrior, to a transcendent robot monk. Every hero plays differently, and mastering their abilities is the key to unlocking their potential. No two heroes are the same.

Individual trailers for each hero can be found here Overwatch Heroes.

 

 

A beta test for the game is planned for 2015 though a specific date has not been given.
