During this years Blizzcon, Blizzard revealed a new first person team-based shooter called Overwatch. The game is scheduled to enter Beta testing in 2015.
The freshly announced first person shooter takes place in a technologically advanced, future earth. In a time of global crisis, an international task force of Soldiers, Scientists, Adventurers and Oddities banded together to restore peace to a war-torn world. The group of heroes was called the Overwatch. Together, they managed to end the war and lead the battle scarred world into an era of exploration, innovation, and discovery. Although Overwatch was disbanded, the world still needs heroes.
With Overwatch, Blizzards aims to bring their signature easy-to-learn yet hard-to-master gameplay in to the FPS genre. Players will join forces in groups of six, to battle it out in the streets, on the rooftops and even the skies. The game offers 12 different playable characters, each with their own unique skill sets.
New heroes and maps will continually be added to the game as development progresses, and beta testing will begin in 2015.
