This morning Overwatch devs tweeted a preview of the newest Champion: Orisa. "Rheinhardt is really the only character that can stand his ground and mark a spot, and move with his team real slow. So we thought there was a great opportunity there for another option." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znEHH68unzA "The look of Orisa really spawned from the idea of wanting to do an African Mech. We have a map called Numbani which is in Africa. Numbani being one of the futuristic cities we have in Overwatch, with the curved shapes and the greens and yellows and earth tones. We really wanted that to carry ... 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 »
A little while ago, Overwatch posted an interesting picture on their twitter page, which has made Overwatch fans lose their head. https://twitter.com/PlayOverwatch/status/836320029222150144 Many are speculating that this is indeed a tease for a new upcoming character, with most suggesting it is a character called Lucio. Some twitter users even poke fun at the tweet: https://twitter.com/ItsGertt/status/836320950312288256 I suspect it won't be long before we hear an actual confirmation from them themselves regarding the tease, but be sure once they do, we will let you know! What do you think this tease means for Overwatch? We would be happy to hear your ... Read More »

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 ...

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. ...
