Overwatch

Recommended Posts

Future heroes and maps will be free. 

 

 

We will be releasing more heroes. We will be releasing more maps. We don't quite have a timetable for that yet. We don't have the exact plans on how those will be released, but we do know that we're not going to be charging players for them. If you buy Overwatch, you will get all the heroes and maps that we release for it, free of charge.

Blizzard have supported Diablo III on console tremendously, with no additional charges. Overwatch is ripe for adding additional skins, emotes and phrases, so it wouldn't surprise me if new ones appear at some point as microtransactions. At the same time,  I could see them being added for free and being unlocked via loot boxes.

 What I hadn't really noticed before is all the shorts are in the games levels. Which is a cool touch. 

 

And a related thing I found out is Genji can deflect Hanzo's Special..

 

A week to go. :)

 

Edit: or you can watch the better version of the short..

My digital pre-order was charged last night. The game and patch are now installed and ready to unlock at midnight tomorrow. B)

Nice! I was tempted to go digital with this myself but the £55 price-tag on the PSN store halted my advances.

 

Booked the day off work on Tuesday so hope Amazon deliver my copy early in the day, but past experience suggests it'll probably be 1-3pm that it'll get delivered.

I'm very tempted to get the digital version of this but it's at least 10 quid more expensive than I can get in a shop.

 

Why is the only version available called "Origins Edition"? Is there another version?

Origins Edition is the only version available on console. I went digital purely for the fact it's the perfect game to stick on for a quick game or two, and I wouldn't ever want to trade it in. You can get £50 PSN credit for about £46 on CDkeys, is what I did to bring the cost down a tiny bit. 

 

Physical version is currently £38.95 at The Game Collection. If you ordered now it'd likely be delivered tomorrow.

It is a frustrating honeymoon period at the moment.  In my games next to no-one goes support classes so I always find myself going Mercy or someone to babysit the rubes.  I'd quite like to git gud with some of the more shooty people but I'm the one that gives in first. 

 

I played enough support during the beta.

My only two trophies so far are from playing support; Mercy and Symmetra. I like both of them.

I still like playing Symmetra on defense games.  I'm just sick of being so good with Mercy that when we attack these chumps need help.  I am getting better with D.Va and I did have one good game with Hanzo and I'd quite like to have more of them, but everyone else goes him.

I got my copy, just waiting for the patch to download.

I'll be playing exclusively support and medic.

I  went with heroes I hadn't used in the Beta for my first few goes. I played a bit of Symmetra, I like him a lot He's useful in combat as well healing. Some Winston too, who was loads of fun to play.

I think you mean another character. Symmetra is female, has the shield boost for allies and can place mini turrets.
