Blizzard Announces Doomfist, Overwatch’s First Villain

Blizzard has announced a new character will be joining Overwatch.

Doomfist is the game’s first outright villain, who apparently leads Talon.

All of the previous baddies have either been brainwashed, corrupted by something, or are simply misunderstood.

In the game’s lore, he is also known as “The Successor” as he is the third person to wear the Doomfist title.

“Scourge of Numbani” is already an enemy of Genji, Tracer, and Winston he is coming into the game to be a character who is evil.

He could be the signal for mad truly bad characters to join the game, leading to more of a good vs. evil fighting concept.

Avalon Hill Announces Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate

Avalon Hill has announced their newest game, Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate.

The game takes the concept from Betrayal at House on a Hill and puts in into the Forgotten Realms of Dungeons and Dragons.

It will include 50 haunts, 47, location tiles, 86 cards, 18 monsters, and 12 adventurers.

The haunts in Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate pull from the legends and lore of Dungeon and Dragons and Baldur’s Gate, meaning D&D fans will find them very familiar.

In this version of Betrayal, Avalon Hill took the time to “clarify and streamline some of the rules fans may have found confusing”.

For anyone unfamiliar with Betrayal at House on A Hill, the game focuses on a haunted house.

Players randomly draw from the location tiles as they explore the house.

Somewhere during the exploration, a haunt is triggered and one of the players becomes the traitor.

Once that occurs, the rest of the players have one set of rules for dealing with the haunt, while the traitor has another.

Betrayal at Baldur’s Gate is set for an October release.
