There's some cool new features heading to Overwatch soon, and game director Jeff Kaplan has spoken out about what's in the pipeline via a new developer update video. Probably the largest addition will be a server browser. Kaplan has said that this will allow players to not only see a list of all custom games in a specific region, but also to choose whether you wish to join them, if they are public. Coupled with this will be a range of filtering options to allow you to find a match with, for example, certain heroes/villains disabled. You can check out Kaplan's ... Read More »
Imagine you and your friend team up and were playing Overwatch.  You were communicating, playing the objectives, holding down choke points, and team shooting and winning fire fights just to have a round end and give the other team the win.  This is the unfortunate nature of what a new bug discovered by Reddit user Endjui is doing.  The video he posted showed his team up 3 - 0 with the round ending and then giving the other team four points.  This isn't an isolated issue as it has happened in Competitive.  Overwatch has always been focused on the fair ...

Take this with a pinch of salt for now, as nothing has been confirmed, but the Xbox Store currently lists Diablo III: Reaper of Souls - Ultimate Evil Edition (such a wordy title) as part of the Free Play Days promotion. The next game in the promotion being labelled as such before any ... Read More »

Blizzard's MOBA Overwatch shows no signs of slowing down and is back in full competitive mode with the 3rd season of competitive play now live for those looking to dominate the rankings. https://twitter.com/PlayOverwatch/status/804120678148378625 There have some changes to this season that players should take note of.

This also meant that competition within the Gold ... Read More »
