A slew of new Overwatch details have arrived, so be sure to check out the highlights below:
There’s a big discussion about how the ranked mode works (which is still targeting the end of June). It’s now a system where you can rank up and down. The game will try to match you by skill, and at equal party sizes. The seasons will last about 2.5 months.
There will be more information about the new maps and heroes coming starting a bit later into the Summer.
They’re already working on updates all the way through to early next year so they have a steady rate of new content, though they’re open to changing the rate based on community feedback.
The first few new heroes will be released one at a time since beta players reacted very negatively to three being released at once.
Jeff confirms Sombra is real and that we haven’t found all the hints in the game about her yet. Presumably she’s the first new hero coming.
They’re open to the idea of Xbox and PlayStation players playing together, but have made no progress on this topic as of yet.
Jeff notes that the server runs at a tick rate of 60, though that the client could be updated to run at 60 as well if more people are willing to test it in the custom game mode. Currently it doesn’t work for about 20% of their player base and they need more people to test it before it can be rolled out to Quick Play. He does say most of the killed around corner issues are from latency though, and not the tick rate.
McCree’s Fan The Hammer damage is getting nerfed so that it doesn’t kill tanks, definitely kills lightweight heroes, and maybe kills medium health heroes.
D.Va is either going to get a damage buff (mostly in terms of lowering the rate at which damage drops off over distance) or survivability buff, but not both. They’re testing both options currently. This will be later than the McCree nerf, which sounds like it’s soon.
After a mysterious tweet appeared yesterday, it looks as though Injustice 2 has been officially leaked. The game, which we will presumably hear more about in the very near future, will no doubt be headed to PS4 and XBOX One and looks to feature the heroes Batman and The Flash. We fully expect to hear a lot more regarding the next installment in the popular fighting game so keep it here.
Here is the official boxart for Horizon: Zero Dawn for PS4. I have to say that I am IN LOVE with the final design and I cannot wait to hear more about the game next week from E3 2016. Horizon: Zero Dawn is being developed by Guerrilla and should have a HUGE presence at this year’s E3. When I first saw Horizon: Zero Dawn, I was intrigued so I will be very eager to see how far the game has come since last year.
Horizon: Zero Dawn will also receive a collectors edition which you can check out below.
The Horizon: Zero Dawn Collector’s Edition will retail for $120, and include the following:
Nine inch Aloy statue, sculpted by Gentle Giant
Exclusive Steel Book case
‘The Art of Horizon Zero Dawn’ art book
Exclusive PS4 theme
Carja Storm Ranger and Banuk Trailblazer outfits
Carja Mighty Bow and Banuk Culling Bow
Carja Trader and Banuk Traveller packs
Here is an all new teaser trailer for the recently announced Battlefield 1. The world reveal trailer (or the full trailer) for the game will hit next week on June 12th. Even though this is only 15 seconds long, it does have me excited to see what Battlefield 1 will bring to the table in terms of multiplayer action…
Keep it here for more Battlefield 1 news and gameplay.
Playtonic, the developers behind the adorable Yooka-Laylee, have released a brand new video giving an extensive look at the adorable title.
