PAX East 2015: Overwatch aims for fall beta, introduces two new characters


Blizzard is breaking out the big guns for Overwatch — in more than one sense of that term. The studio announced at PAX East today that it is aiming for a fall beta test for the superhero-themed online shooter.

To make you wish that fall were already here, Blizzard also dropped three big reveals for the game. The first was the playable character of McCree, an outlaw cowboy who deals out damage from his heavy six-shooters. The second was the buff female tank Zarya, who uses her mighty muscles to handle a giant particle cannon. And the third was a new PvP map, Watchpoint: Gibraltar, in which heroes will help to start up a communications array (or perhaps shut it down for good).

You can watch the McCree and Zarya reveal videos after the jump!
