From the official website: Overwatch is a highly stylized team-based shooter set on earth in the near future. Every match is an intense multiplayer showdown pitting a diverse cast of soldiers, mercenaries, scientists, adventurers, and oddities against each other in an epic, globe-spanning conflict.
The similarities between games like Team Fortress 2 (aka Hat simulator), Super Monday Night Combat, & Gotham City Importers is apparent .Big team-based battles, various characters with special abilities (12!),6v6, & the trailer show off how different each one is and hints at what kind of role they will fulfill in game. The CGI trailer has a Pixar-like style that looks incredible (as all Blizzard videos do). Since we never got an official look at the long rumored,in-developement & recently cancelled Titan, there’s the possibility that some ideas or assets may have been repurposed for Overwatch. Blizzard says that it will be released sooner than you think; with a beta due out sometime next year (beta signups should be available here) . Big team battle style games are popping up all over, such as Bethesda’s Battlecry and Gearbox’s Battleborn, so if you’re a fan, this is a great time to be a gamer. Check out some more trailers & meet the characters!
