Overwatch shows off the turret-building gameplay of Torbjörn

TAKE THIS, CARS

Torbjörn, aside from having a name that’s very satisfying to type when you’re familiar with Unicode inputs, is a simple kind of guy. He doesn’t rush into danger, he doesn’t dance around, he doesn’t dual-wield guns. He just fires molten metal and builds turrets while upgrading them with the scrap from fallen enemies. In other words, he’s solidly defensive, but as the latest Overwatch gameplay video shows, there’s a long gap between “defensive” and “passive” in this game.

You can see all of Torbjörn’s abilities on display in the video and get a good idea of his approach, setting up a turret in an ideal location while moving back and forth to collect scrap and take out enemies. If you’ve been thinking that the character you’re really waiting for is the pseudo-dwarven mechanical genius, jump on down below and check him out in action.

“Looks like more things that Blizz has invented for Valve to rip off, amirite?”

This….this is cringe-worthy.

Giggilybits To be fair, Blizzard has a lot of coping in the past. Heck WoW is a rip off of Warhammer (table top).

Sythalin Brink did the same thing. And we all know how that ended up. Next thing you’re going to say that Dirty Bomb is a copy of TF2 also. Hahahaha.

Sythalin I’m sorry I just had to laugh reading your comment given where Steam’s DotA2 came from!

Because you can’t copyright gameplay mechanics.

Only art assets are copyright.

And Blizzard’s art assets are different enough to pass the test.

Sythalin gameplay systems cant be copyrighted iirc, thats why valve cant sue em, just like Gary Gygax cant sue every fantasy game for having a warrior mage thief or cleric.

I’ve always liked the idea of a turret so that seems like it could be fun. I still can’t get past how grating the sound is when popping Molten Core though.

carsont Definitely not. IMO, from what we’ve seen it might have been awesome.
