Overwatch 2 Announced

Blizzard officially announces popular hero shooter sequel Overwatch 2 and new modes at BlizzCon 2019.

Following an exclusive report from ESPN and a leak within in-game store, developer/publisher Blizzard Entertainment has finally revealed Overwatch 2 at BlizzCon 2019 event for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

One of Blizzard's major franchises, team-based multiplayer first-person shooter Overwatch was launched on all major platforms back in 2016. It became a popular eSports title over time and now is ready to delve into its next chapter.

In a traditional manner, a new cinematic short "Zero Hour" is released by Blizzard to kick-off the announcement.

The cinematic begins by focusing on Winston, who is reminiscing their old days while heading over to Paris with Mei and Tracer. They are off to fight a terrorist organization known as Null Sector and all they have is a small crew.

Taking charge of their operation, Winston jumps right in fighting and helping local populace. As he was getting overpowered by their forces, Mei came to his assist and Tracer joins them too but not before a giant omnic came out blasting.

With their ride destroyed and Mei getting injured in an attack, Winston realizes that they can't possibly win. So, he instructs Tracer to get everyone out of harm's way and decides to stay behind, holding the line for as long as possible.

Running for cover, his friends look back to see him trying to make a last stand but is saved by Genji at last minute. Brigitte and Reinhardt came charging in, followed by arrival of heroic omnic Echo and guardian angel Mercy.

Brigitte and Reinhardt work together to display ability to create an interlock shield to deflect a beam from their giant enemy. Winston cooks up something up with cryo-freeze backpack and pulse bomb from his teammates to take it down.

By working together as a team, they managed to put that inside giant omnic unit and shattered it into icy bits. Effectively shutting down a Null Sector invasion, Overwatch team has reformed once again after so long and is back in action.

It was rumored long ago that Blizzard has been working hard on Diablo IV and Overwatch 2. Though everyone expected the former to come out, the latter was somewhat a surprise since it just launched a Nintendo Switch port recently.

Other than Diablo 4 reveal, one of the biggest announcements out of BlizzCon this year was sequel of Overwatch and Kaplan believes it will redefine everything a follow-up installment should stand for with steady stream of new contents.

Overwatch 2 May be Revealed at BlizzCon 2019

BlizzCon 2019 to reveal popular hero shooter sequel Overwatch 2 with new hero and PvE game mode!

Rumors for a sequel to team-based multiplayer first-person shooter Overwatch has been out there for past couple of months but new report not only suggests that claim, it also confirms inclusion of a new hero and PvE mode.

Although developer/publisher Blizzard Entertainment has yet to announce Overwatch 2, it is supported by several sources that the follow-up to popular hero shooter will be officially revealed at BlizzCon 2019 on November 1, 2019.

According to a recent BlizzCon training document, Rod Breslau of ESPN mentions of a new PvE story mode that is a four-player co-op mission and will take place on a new map set in Rio de Janeiro, hometown of support hero Lúcio.

Player community and professional league players have long been complaining for some of least popular modes like Assault. Attendees of BlizzCon may likely to have a chance to experience both its PvE and new game mode "Push".

Revealed at BlizzCon 2018, in "Reunion" trailer, an omnic named Echo will be joining current hero roster as 32nd hero. She is reunited with McCree after he rescued her earlier from Ashe and her Deadlock Gang from Route 66.

Their brief conversation suggests that she used to be a partner of the outlaw gunslinger and was put into stasis for some unknown reasons. During a recall of Overwatch agents, McCree came to wake her up and join team once again.

Back in June, Blizzard reportedly cancelled a first-person shooter title set in StarCraft universe in favor of major franchise sequels, shifting that team to work on Overwatch 2 as that scrapped FPS project used to ran on Overwatch engine.

Even though developers usually hate leaks ahead of time, Blizzard should feel lucky at this point to come in spotlight for a new game after their controversial move against Hearthstone player Ng "blitzchung" Wai Chung for political speech.

Blizzard Confirms Overwatch Soldier: 76 to Be Gay

Blizzard subtly confirms another Overwatch hero to be a LGBTQ character within the fictional universe but there is more!

Although team-based multiplayer first-person shooter title Overwatch is not a game where players dive in for some story, it is really nice to enjoy when developer/publisher Blizzard Entertainment adds a little bit of lore with animated shorts or single issue comics.

This adds back-story to certain characters and helps establish the fictional world the game is set on, which is one of the reasons why those little pieces mean a lot. Blizzard has come up with a short story titled "Bastet" that has to do with the sexuality of a character from Overwatch universe.

Blizzard Confirms Overwatch Soldier: 76 to Be Gay

RELATED: Blizzard Cancelled Heroes of the Storm eSports 2019

The new visual story "Bastet" (not a comic though) bounty hunter Ana meets Jack Morrison AKA Soldier: 76 on the streets of Cairo and takes him to her hideout as he was wounded. None of them knew if the other is alive until this point following the destruction of their headquarters in Switzerland.

Jack was reminiscing about the old days and handed her a small stack of photos where she noticed a dark-haired man by his side in one of them. Jack identifies the person as Vincent, someone he had a relationship with when he was younger and then the plot continues.

Previously, Blizzard has revealed the sexuality of their Damage hero Tracer from the known universe, where she is depicted to be a lesbian through a comic-book during Christmas 2016 that was about her spending holiday time with her girlfriend Emily.

However, the matter of LGBTQ representation in case of Soldier: 76 seem a bit out of place and unsatisfying. The confirmation from lead writer of the game Michael Chu about the relationship of Jack and Vincent feels a lot like J.K. Rowling's proclamation about Dumbledore being gay all along.

RELATED: World of Warcraft: Lost Honor – Cinematic

If you have been following up about Blizzard Entertainment lately, then you already know that they are having a bad time with the fans right after the Diablo Immortal debacle from BlizzCon 2018 and then many of their original founders are leaving the company now after massive stock plummeting.

Most recently, the hero shooter faced a scandal surrounding a fake Overwatch player named Ellie who leaves the league team Second Wind due to harassment but then turn out to be a "social experiment" set up by streamers.

Tracer Revealed to Be Lesbian

RELATED: BlizzCon 2018 Opening Highlights

So, even though the developers were quick to jump off to tackle this strange situation and confirmed Soldier: 76 to be gay is not because they are so diverse and inclusive about the game's cast but to score some virtue signaling points from minor communities.

Of course, it matters a lot to players from LGBTQ community, many of whom can now relate to the character more than ever and will even feel more driven towards Overwatch but without any previous indication of his sexuality anywhere else only makes their desperation obvious to everyone.

Overwatch’s New Hero Ashe

BlizzCon 2018 has introduced the newest and 29th hero for Blizzard's acclaimed hero shooter Overwatch.

Last time developer/publisher Blizzard Entertainment introduced a super-intelligent hamster riding a death machine called Wrecking Ball as a new hero for their team-based multiplayer shooter Overwatch and now BlizzCon 2018 heralds for another one.

During the opening ceremony of the festival, Blizzard released a brand-new cinematic short "Reunion" set in the fictional universe of the popular hero shooter and featuring everyone's favorite gunslinger, Jesse McCree, this clip offers more than just one hero.

We won't be wasting any more time to hop in for a ride to find out whom McCree would encounter in "Reunion" and what that would lead to.




RELATED: Overwatch's Symmetra Will Be Removed From Support

The short opens up showing a record labeled "Reunion" starts playing in an empty diner in Route 66, where a stranger is slowly enjoying his apple pie and coffee. Before he takes another bite, a train that was passing by is bombed and he leaves the cafe.

Picking his cowboy hat and holster after leaving a dime on the table, he goes outside and sees a group of military hardware traffickers robbing the train. One of them sees him and runs back to their leader, Ashe stating they got trouble.

RELATED: Overwatch Support Hero Moira Announced

It is then revealed that he was running scared to see Jesse McCree, who seems to know Ashe and apparently have shared past together. After their initial sarcastic greeting, McCree says he only want a certain crate from their loot and is not interested in their business.

When her omnic companion B.O.B. opens it up, she asks him what it is but he tries to dodge the question. This irked Ashe and minions of her Deadlock Gang starts taking position on Jesse in a Wild West fashion until he made his move on them.

RELATED: Overwatch Symmetra Fan Theory Confirmed By Blizzard

He quickly incapacitated the gang by drawing his six-shooter Peacekeeper but they cornered him with concentrated fire. He throws out a couple of grenades at them and shoots the pins off mid-air to knock them all off at once before restraining the group.

Ashe wakes up to see her including the gang tied up while McCree opens the crate and pulls an omnic out that calls him her partner. Jokingly telling her to say hi to the monkey for him (Winston) he heads to attend to some unfinished business somewhere.

Aside from being a rugged outlaw, Ashe and B.O.B. has a history of their own before forming the Deadlock Gang and hit the streets.




RELATED: Overwatch League is Exclusively on Twitch

Elizabeth Caledonia Ashe grew up in the middle of wealth but never had her family at her side when she felt their need. Having a rebellious nature, she always used to find troubles and get into fights but instead of her family, would always find B.O.B. beside her.

She came across McCree at some point and went on a crime spree before he moved to Blackwatch. Ashe eventually sets out for an adopted family of friends to form the Deadlock Gang, which becomes one of the biggest criminal syndicates in America.

If you think that the cinematic has somehow failed to properly capture her true enigma or you have missed something, then here is a glimpse of her gameplay we have for you.




RELATED: Overwatch Support Hero Brigitte Announced

Ashe wields a semi-automatic rifle called "The Viper" for firing quick and accurate shots but also carries a Coach Gun to blast off he opponents. Even though a sniper hero, she doesn't shy around from throwing a bundle of dynamite at her enemies.

She would often summon her robot companion B.O.B. to crushing down her rivals or shooting them down with his arm cannons. This powerful omnic sidekick can come in very handy and sometime can feel like a hero of his own.

Voiced by actress Jennifer Hale, Ashe was a complete surprise addition to the Overwatch roster even though Route 66 was hinted earlier after the revelation of Hammond as well as the upcoming character would somehow be related to McCree.

Currently, all attendees at BlizzCon 2018 get to play as Ashe and very soon she will hit PTR for players on PC for them to master her skills. Her addition to the game as a damage hero would sure brig some great changes and we look forward to her arrival. Echo too, will return soon as the 30th hero when her development is finally complete.

It was months ago in August, when Blizzard Entertainment announced through an official video that they were working on a couple of Diablo projects that they would love to showcase at BlizzCon 2018 and Diablo Immortal is the latest in the line from the franchise.

The new cinematic released for the game reveals that it takes place between the events of DiabloII: Lord of Destruction and Diablo III, coming to both Android and iOS. Although many fans were waiting for Diablo IV, they got this but it doesn't look that bad either.

Currently available demo lets you get into the action with a touchscreen right away and it does well for a fast-paced action game. Except for Witch Doctor, most of the playable classes are available but hardcore fans of the franchise can skip this one out.

The developers also anticipated that players probably are hoping for a sequel game based on the Lord of Terror and subtly left hints that it might take more time to deliver what they want. Despite having the feel of Diablo III, the game needs more polishing to have appeal and acceptance from fans.
