We're closing in fast on the first birthday for one of 2016's greatest games, Overwatch, and Blizzard Entertainment are celebrating in style. So far Blizzard have announced that on May 23rd, three new arena maps will be available to all players. These maps are themed on current maps Eichenwalde, Temple of Anubis and Dorado. If you're wondering what type of map is an "arena" map, think Ecopoint; Antarctica. These new maps will likely be added to the rotation of playlists like 3v3 Elimination, though if you play that mode, you have serious problems. Check out the tweet from the official ... Read More »

Today has been a good day for any budding agents of Overwatch, as Blizzard have dropped some big news regarding the future of the game, concerning both old and new characters. First, the old. Transforming turret Bastion has always been a point of contention within the Overwatch community, but his recent buff, which saw increases in his defense and damage output in certain modes, alongside an ability to heal whilst moving in recon mode, has caused outcry to reach critical mass. This buff went live two days ago, but already Blizzard are working on changing him up once again in ... Read More »
There as been a lot of speculation recently regarding whether or not Ex-American Footballer Terry Crews could be joining Overwatch as the hero Doomfist. The speculation all began in December after Crews was seen visiting the Blizzard studios. Crews seems to be rather keen on joining the ranks of the Overwatch Heroes. That is if his Twitter account is anything to go by. Who wants to hear me do the voice of Doomfist for real?? https://t.co/l4aszRrDYE — terrycrews (@terrycrews) January 4, 2017 All of this does indeed make it seem as if there is something in the works at least. ...

Who wants more Overwatch content? Trick question, of course you do. Well, if this supposed Xbox Store leak is to be believed, Overwatch will be getting some themed Halloween content. An eagle-eyed redditor managed to grab a blurry picture of purchasable Halloween loot boxes. Whilst the blurriness might call the legitimacy into question, it does follow the same pattern of the Summer Games lootboxes. The leak also goes on to confirm that there will be more than 100 Halloween items, which works out on average to just over 5 items per character. These will include skins, intros, emotes, sprays, voice ... Read More »
No one likes a cheater, we all know that. Blizzard have now come out and said that they will punish anyone who plays as a character other Lucio in the limited time gamemode Lucioball. The idea of Lucioball is that everyone plays as Lucio, a guy without a gun. He can only use the abilities that he has to push a ball into the opposing goal. This sounds simple enough and puts everyone on a level playing field. But at the moment there is the possibility that not everything will be level. Players have found a way to play as ... Read More »

A gorilla scientist, a shotgun wielding Grim Reaper, a cybernetic ninja, an angel, a dwarf mechanic and the world's most hated transforming turret walk into the Temple of Osiris. As squads go, that's a pretty good one to aspire towards… Now, seeing a team like that in any other game might cause you to channel your inner Monty Python and say "Stop that now! It's silly!" Overwatch, however, says that's just a normal Tuesday afternoon. Overwatch is a first person MOBA that sees you and a team of freaks with unique traits and abilities face off against other teams of ... Read More »
