Feb 3, 2016

Perhaps you’ve heard of Blizzard Entertainment – the developers of a globally known MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) titled World of Warcraft. In the gaming world, Blizzard Entertainment is a big name. That’s why their upcoming multiplayer experience, Overwatch, is expected to be a successful release. A lucky few Blizzard Entertainment fans who live in the USA or Europe have been invited to give Overwatch a spin in its beta version, beginning October 27, 2015. For the rest of us, an official release date is still up in the air. An online source suggests that a select group of hopefuls in Asia might have the opportunity to play in beta version at some point before the final release. The game is expected to be ready for the world to play be on platforms PC, XBOX ONE, and Play Station 4 sometime during the first half of 2016.

Overwatch is a futuristic first-person shooter that will be available to play with friends locally or online. There are several different characters to choose from, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. The characters come in four classes: offense, defense, tank, and support. You and five friends form a group to battle the opposing team, choosing your characters carefully. Since each character has their own specific abilities and downfalls, strategic skills are required to form the best possible team.

The game takes place during a conflict that has affected the world. An artificial intelligence has attempted to rule, and humans must fight to preserve their planet. The chaos has gotten so out of hand that the United Nations formed a neutral task force to watch over the world and reconstruct peace, hence the name “Overwatch”. The amount of game play that has been recorded is limited, but the trailer gives the impression that it has a similar “feel” to the Halo series – except for the witty characters and gorilla named Winston.

The video below will give you a humorous preview of the entertainment you can soon enjoy from Overwatch. If you’d like to reserve a copy and purchase it ahead of time, Overwatch has been open for pre-order since November 6, 2015.
