    It the recent BlizzCon, Blizzard officially announced their new game called Overwatch. It is a team-based shooter game, and is focused on a futuristic version on our world, and possibly this may be what Titan is, and "Titan" is a fake title and said to be cancelled for us to don't expect this one.

    Here's the Game's Main Page.

    Cinematic Trailer:

    Gameplay Trailer:

    This game looks...exciting and...cool, this don't fit my genre liking but, we'll see if this game would be nice :)

    To Starcraft II fans, Legacy of the Void has been revealed and to my fellow World of Warcraft fans, WoD will be released very soon :)

    So some new FPS gets a page worth of content yet StarCraft II's second expansion only 1 line? Seems a bit unfair if you ask me. At least post up the LotV cinematic trailer.

    this thread is meant to be about the new game, not about Starcraft 2's new expansion. I dont even know why he mixed it into here

    I don't like it. Looks like team fortress copy and cinematic was extremely childish. I am quite disappointed with Blizzard.
     
  8. I think they made the right decision :)

    what ye mean by "hack'em-up"?

    that was on purpose, they want to highlight that the game is family friendly, unlike some blood splatting devil slaughtering diablo.

    It is obviously the left over content from the cancelled project Titan given a form that is more viable. It is not too uncommon for content from cancelled games to be re-hashed and released in some other form.

    The currently most famous example would be Final Fantasy XIII-Versus which was originally going to involve Lightning in some way for the PS3. Eventually it was prosponed so long people thought it dead. The lightning part obviously became Final Fantasy XIII: Lightning Returns while the rest has gradually been morphed into Final Fantasy XV (The makers even admitted it).

    Blizzard made all the assets for Titan and they would be very silly to dump them in the recycling bin. FPS and futuristic was exactly what Titan was aimed at.

    @jony: there were blood splatters on the video, I don't think it aims to be family friendly, could be early teen friendly though. But yeah, the theme is somewhat kiddie, with the bright colors and other stuff.

    Hearthstone didn't get anything! We should have had a full Blizzcon news thread.

    I like how the trailer begin with low budget semi-animated artwork and then it's actualy a pixar like animation.

    I wonder why so many people have to be pesimistic about new releases such as this, with the reason is looks like a copy or the "poor" art.

    If we adress copy, lots of games are copies or feature elements from other games, I'd even dare to state that the best games come from looking at other games, featuring elements from other games or refining something new. Warcraft defenitly was not the first RTS no, but they did make the standard/trend for modern RTS with similar RTS's like C&C and later on Age of Empires. Same goes for Starcraft, Diablo and little counts for WoW too. So i'd say blizz games are creative and are oftend innovators or trendsetters for a genre.

    I've seen plenty in Overwatch that doesn't resemble TF2, apart from the fact that it is a shooter that uses roles and is objective based (which tf2 wasn't the first with either).

    Graphics wise, not liking the style doesn't make for bad graphics. The in game graphics look quite impressive to me, so do the animations, level of detail and ambience in their levels.

    just my two cents...

    My relatively cool reception of this has to do with one thing: Blizzard, as a developer, has simply deviated away from developing games that catch my eye.

    I'm not a huge fan of competitive multiplayer, and as such, games such as HotS, SC2, and now Overwatch, fall flat with me. It's the reason I haven't touched LoL or DotA 2. The extent of my multiplayer experience is the rare dance with destruction in Battlefield. I've grown to love and appreciate Single-player affairs far more, which is ironic, given that we are living in an increasingly connected world where Multi-player seems to be the only word in a developer's vocabulary.

    I was anticipating SC2 because of the potential for modding, but from what I've seen, that has pretty much fallen flat on its face. D3 is pretty much built around the loot grind, and I just don't have the time for that anymore.

    As I mentioned in the other thread related to Overwatch, my time for gaming is already limited. I'm looking for new, unique experiences with which to fill my time, not slightly iterative improvements upon a genre/design I grew tired of years ago.

    Just throwing it out there that I only play bots on DotA 2. My friends and I play together and we enjoy just playing against AI. In fact LoL is the only multiplayer game we play together, everything else is co-op style or we play AI.
