Overwatch Released

News & Rumors Other

Only a year in development and tons of community support have allowed the Overwatch team to release the first public client. There has been a lot of private testing recently, and apparently the developers are comfortable with going public.

The mod boasts plenty of new features and is an interesting twist to the traditional Source mod algorithm. More information and trailer after the jump.

The mod offers both RTS and FPS modes and new gameplay mechanics, bundled with a convenient updater utility. Developers can push out patches at any time in an unobtrusive manner, which benefits players. Bugs can be fixed instantly and the Overwatch team never has to worry about releasing frequent, minor updates.

The team is still looking for feedback, and some maps remain untextured, but again, this is a public beta. Despite this being such an early version, the mod looks to be shaping up nicely, and the shield and reviving mechanics are very interesting.
