Rank 17! I am SO important to the world!

Are you the guy who looked at Overwatch‘s character lineup and said, “Nah, get rid of that robot with twin chainguns; I want to play a guy with a pistol or a bow”? Hey, you got your wish. The latest two preview videos for the game focus on McCree and Hanzo, the Old West gunslinger and the Japanese archery master. But, you know, in the superhero future.

Joking aside, both videos show off what the characters are capable of as well as how different two offense-oriented characters can play. Jump on down below to see both characters taking the center stage and shooting down all comers. Their advanced technology is no match for your six-shot revolver and your bow!

Polyanna As of the last blizzcon, yes.   In fact, a full team of Bastions was presumably very overpowered.  I don’t know if this is still the case or not, though, since it’s been a while.

Does the game allow more than one person on each team to play a particular hero?

Yea the pocket heals helped, idk just seemed like he was untouchable, especially for the Reinhardt. If Reinhardt didn’t have his stun up it was GG. 
Really not a fan of the one shot mechanic, getting hit by that while on a kill streak will be rage inducing.

Rumm Yeah that stun seems a bit too easy to land. But to be fair it seems he had a pocket medic for a good chunk of that so he was always full HP for every fight he got into.

How can you not tell the differences? Seems to me you do not play FPS games.

Revolver guy is a speedy front line assassin. You’re going to be in the action and take all but the tankiest opponents head on. Bow guy sits in the back and picks people off. You’re going to be running from everybody who wants to shoot you.

Massive difference in the gameplay in terms of how you react to each situation. Both are the “DPS” styled classes but play very different strategies.

Inb4 Mccree day one nerf. 

Melee classes look a bit underwhelming from the videos that have been shown thus far.

This game could reallyyyyyyyyyyyyy use some arm delay on turns for the first person view.

It just looks like a revolver decal slapped on to the screen.

It looks great, but I dunno  maybe I’m just old but it looks to me to be the same as FPS’s were ten years ago with better graphics.
And both those classes look to play exactly the same.
