You heard it here, folks. While everyone continues to be frustrated by poor loot drops in Overwatch’s anniversary event, Blizzard has gone ahead and started teasing out their next plan for their widely-praised and often-criticized FPS.
The Overwatch website has updated with a new article, detailing the reveal of new information pertaining to the Horizon Lunar Colony, a colony on the moon that lost contact with the earth prior to the events of the game and the place of origin for peanut-butter-guzzling science gorilla Winston. The update reveals several emails between Dr. Winston and his staff with regards to an incident with some of the apes on the [...]
It has been one year since Overwatch first launched. It was so well accepted it has now 30 million players, and has since been regularly updated with new modes, cosmetics, maps and heroes.
To celebrate its one year anniversary, a new limited time event has appeared. Coming with that is a ton of new cosmetics (legendary skins, new dance emotes) as well as an additional three arena maps for duels (which were only limited to only one before this).
If you have yet to buy Overwatch, it is currently on sale on all platforms as well.
We gave a glowing review when Overwatch first released, and after a year it still remains one of the more satisfying team shooters out [...]

During the Destiny 2 press release event, it was revealed that the PC version of the multiplayer online FPS will be available exclusively via the Blizzard App. It is an unprecedented move, as games under the Activision brand of Activision Blizzard have always been launched on other launchers on PC. The use of the Blizzard App will let players of Destiny 2 use all the features of that launcher, from friend lists to Facebook Live streaming.
It will be possible to use Blizzard Balance, real-life money that can be added with a card and also gained from other in-game currencies, like World Of Warcraft (WoW) Tokens.
WoW Tokens are special currency that can be used to extend [...]
Cassia is the new hero in the Nexus. Based on the Javelin Amazon-archetype from Diablo 2, Cassia shows her might with the power of thunder against the foes of darkness.
Her trait is called Avoidance, where she automatically gains 65 Physical Armor (or 65% damage reduction on Basic Attacks dealt by other Heroes) while moving. This means while playing as Cassia, it is vital that you keep in movement while attacking, also known as stutter-stepping, to effectively use her trait. It is also very useful especially for scenarios where she can push with either an objective (in maps like Battlefield of Eternity / Braxis [...]
Overwatch is almost a year old and the esports scene around the hero shooter is strong. While the influx of tournaments keep the scene healthy, there’s also the Overwatch League. It’s an ambitious endeavour of running franchised teams in a league like Riot’s LCS, or traditional sports leagues like the NFL and MLB.
It’s an open secret that the idea of location-based franchises are a way to attract traditional sports investors into esports. According to a report by ESPN, the Overwatch League is trying to court these big investors with a big barrier to entry: $20 million USD for a spot in the League.
From the esports perspective, this number is [...]
