Overwatch will have another Free Weekend

It seems that Blizzard really wants you to try Overwatch. The game will be having it’s second or third free weekend (that i can recall) starting Saturday the 22nd through Monday the 25th. Just like last time, if you decide to buy the game after the free weekend, all progress made during the event will carry over, so there’s not a lot of reason to not give it a shot if you’re interested. Maybe the game wont be for you, but there’s not a lot to lose if you find that to be the case.

You can find out more information, including how to get access to the event on your preferred platform, at PlayOverwatch.Com.

 

Overwatch: New Short and New Map Unveiled

With the recent news that Overwatch is getting it’s own Death Match mode, and the current ranked season coming to an end soon, it’s not surprising that we’re coming up on another update in the near future. And with those updates tends to come new characters or maps, and this time is no different. Delving into Junkrat and Roadhog’s back story, Blizzard is bringing us to the irradiated Australian wast land the two call home.

Personally i am super excited about this as A) Junkrat is my main and B) it’s a payload map which tends to be my favorite. Not much to say about this other than “i’m stoked”.

Death Match is coming to Overwatch

Hey you! Yes, you Mister “fuck the payload, i’m just going to get as many kills as possible”.  Blizzard has a new game mode just for you. I’m not sure when it’s coming, but death match and team death match will be coming to the Overwatch arcade.

In death match seven or eight players go head to head, and the first person to get 20 kills wills. However, if you are in the top four in terms of score you’ll get points towards the arcade loot boxes.

Team Death Match is…well….team death match. Two teams, first team to get to 30 kills wins. Pretty standard stuff.

This…doesn’t really excite me all that much, as i don’t think Overwatch is particularly well suited for death matches, but in the end, i’m more or less okay more game types.

Law Breakers goes into Closed Beta This Month

Hey, look! Some actual gaming news that’s worth talking about. That’s rare. Okay, enough jokes. March 16-19, right after PAX, Lawbreakers  will be entering into a closed beta. Ever since i fell in love with Overwatch and heard this was its gory, M-Rated sister i’ve been interested in getting my hands on it. Granted that may not be until the player base dies down to just the overly dedicated and the game becomes inaccessible to new players due to poverty and a lack of free time. But hey, what matters is that i’ll always have overwatch to go back too once i’m inevitably driven off, right? But for those of you with some free time (please leave a comment telling me what that’s like), you can sign up for the open beta HERE . And for those of you with money, email me for my address, i take cash and checks.

Overwatch: All Sombra’s Unlocks

The good folks over at Polygon have given us a look at the unlockables for the upcoming Sombra, and i have to say i’m rather impressed. While i have spent some of the in game gold on a few skins, i’ve been more or less indifferent to after getting a few for the characters i actually tend to play as. After watching this though, i can pretty much confirm upfront that i’m going to waste my stockpile of cash once Sombra is released. There’s really not much to say there: i’m just super excited.
