Blizzard is certainly starting to roll out the Overwatch gameplay footage. Could it be preparing for some sort of E3 unveiling or playable coverage?
Yesterday, we had seven minutes of combat featuring the hypnotic monk Zenyatta. Today, we have the support work of Mercy, the healing angel.
While certainly not as awe-inducing as yesterday’s gameplay, this stuff still looks great. Crank it up to 1080p and 60fps, if you can, and enjoy. We have 11 minutes worth of stuff, too, so that makes it all the more special.
I hope we’ll see a string of these character-focused clips over the next several days. Say what you want about Overwatch, but Blizzard has at least done a good job creating a variety of characters. The count currently sits at 14 playable heroes.
We don’t have a release date for this one yet, but it has been announced for PC and will offer a beta later this year. Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if Blizzard announces PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions during E3. It has paved the way with Diablo III already.
