Overwatch marked Blizzard’s first try at making a first-person shooter, and given its continued success, it is honest to say it turned out fairly nicely. Some followers could hope the developer tries its hand at a spin-off preventing recreation subsequent, due to a brand new video.
Created by YouTube channel TGN, the video under imagines what Overwatch could be like as a 2D preventing recreation. It initially pits Reinhardt versus Zarya as the 2 use their precise Overwatch skills within the context of a one-on-one battle on the Volskaya Industries map. At one level, we even get a stage transition, as Reinhardt’s Cost skill is used to drive Zarya out of 1 space, via a wall, and into one other portion of the map.
A second match sees Genji and Doomfist throw down on Numbani. All of that is accompanied by a preventing game-style HUD, full with well being bars, injury indicators, and particular meters. There are even transitions from spherical to spherical, and it is all capped off with a bonus stage a la Street Fighter the place Doomfist beats the hell out of an inanimate object.
Sadly, that is all merely a video, not a playable mod. On the intense aspect, there’s a variety of new stuff in Overwatch proper now to examine out–including Year of the Dog skins–courtesy of the continued Lunar New Year event. In case you do not personal the sport, Overwatch is playable for free on PC, PS4, and Xbox One proper now–and is just one of several games you can try out without paying this weekend.
