Watchpoint Radio #81: New Character, New Map, Same Overwatch.

November 8th, 2017

Bob is back from Blizzcon 2017 and had a blast. He tells us about his experience, then we dig into what we learned from Blizzcon. Biggest news is of Moria, the newest support character. Initially her game play video made her seem a bit OP, but after having a chance to play her, Jaa only has one main concern. Bob isn’t that big of a fan of her yet, but we’ll see how he feels when she’s out.

We also learned about Blizzard World, the newest map coming to Overwatch in early 2018. Blizzard World puts together all of Blizzard in one map as a theme park. It’s a payload map, which has Jaa a bit disappointed, because he was hoping for a new game mode this year. Oh well. We also got a ton of info on Overwatch League and saw the new spectator system in action. Both Bob and Jaa were impressed. All this and more on this episode of Watchpoint Radio!
