Overwatch – Blizzard’s Brand New IP
Today at Blizzconn, Blizzard Entertainment announced their first new IP in years, Overwatch. Overwatch is a team-based FPS multiplayer shooter, similar to Team Fortress 2. The game boasts about 12 characters and takes place on small maps inspired by locations from around the globe; from a sun-soaked Egypt, to a Japan influenced map covered with sakura trees, to a bustling metropolitan city. Overwatch is playable at Blizzconn this year for lucky congoers with a beta being set for next year. No word on if the game will be a F2P game similar to Team Fortress 2. Check out the cinematic trailer and the gameplay trailer below.
