With time new things are bound to happen. Such is the case with Blizzard Entertainment, a two decade old game developing company that gave the World of Warcraft to the gaming world. Blizzard is out with a brand new game after 17 long years. The wait is worth it as the grand launch of its new game called Overwatch, is nothing short of a dream. The launch happened at BizzCon, company’s own fan base event. All the excitement was fulfilled as the fans were shown a cinematic-style trailer of the shooter game Overwatch. A legendary way to exhibit a new game.
BlizzCon 2014 is happening this weekend at the Anaheim Convention Center in California. Coming to the game Overwatch, it has a brand new feel, characters and storyline, which makes it worth a shot. The brand value of Blizzard is the icing on the cake. The shooter game for PC revealed a cyborg gorilla character, which you can opt to play with and save the world playing this game. The games graphics are cartoon styled and as the Senior Vice President of Blizzard described Overwatch’s story development as being ‘all about the heroes’.
Overwatch game has original superheroes and the gorillas is just one of the amazing characters. The team based shooter game has characters like Hanzo, the archer or Widowmaker, the sniper. Each has its own skills and powers, which you can use in the 15 minute match you are going to play.
Blizzard Entertainment has totally surprised more than 25,000 fans present at the event. But the company has broken all stereotypes in the past and this is no short of an excellent attempt.
