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.
Overwatch’s Summer Games should be making their return soon.
The 2016 games were a hit with most players.
Since then, Overwatch has had several other seasonal events and their summer one will be coming soon.
At this point, not much is known about what will happen as part of the event.
It does appear that Lucioball will be returning and that there will be new cosmetic items, including skins and emotes.
Expect more information about the event to come soon.
We found a treat for you today and a fantastic way to open up our new
Overwatch section to the site.
A group of French Overwatch fans got together and made a rap battle featuring characters from the game.
They also took the time to make some amazing cosplays.
For those of you who have never heard rapping in French, you’re in for an even bigger mind opener, as the video is completely in French, though there are English subtitles.
Everything about this video is quite well done.
Our only dislike is that more of the characters didn’t get to participate.
As part of Overwatch’s
anniversary event, Blizzard created dances for each of the characters.
In a response, the voice actors got together and taped themselves doing their characters’ dances.
Someone was also nice enough to put in screenshots of the characters doing the dances, in the corner of the screen.
Anniversary event has begun.

The last eight days have seen a lot of shake up in the Overwatch and professional gaming communities.
During that time five different groups have dropped their Overwatch players.
Each of the organizations stated that the costs of joining Blizzard’s Overwatch league were a major factor in the decision.
Denial Esports was the first, on May 2.
They have since been followed by
Red Reserve and Team SoloMid on May 5, compLexity on May 8, and Splyce on May 9.
