Waiting on more info than lines of text from MMO Champ. That mystery two-hour block on the Blizzcon schedule is likely more info and media.

Seems like Frozen + Team Fortress 2 + Wildstar.
I would have at least given it more time for info to appear before making a thread for it...
Took them long enough to stop playing it safe and try something new.
I have to say, this is reminding me a bit of the League Of Legends-style cast set in Team Fortress 2. Like two of the characters in the trailer appear to be an engineer/support archetype but it looks like they look and play completely different.

Actually, the page says Tracer (the speedster) is an offensive type. But yeah...this has me intrigued.
This looks pretty cool. As a TF 2 fan, it definitely has me intrigued. Hopefully the graphical requirements aren't crazy stringent.
Sounds pretty darn cool.
Cinematic trailer (further) had me wonder "Why doesn't Blizzard graphix people just make movies".
Looks pretty awesome. Its got a great sense of fun about it. I'll probably be getting this.
Also made an Overwatch page.

Considering how much is slathered on the official website, perhaps the release date is SoonTM only be a year or two away.
Looks like boatloads of fun. Just signed up for beta.
Bout damn time they came up with something new.
Signed up for the beta. Since they've got the closed beta set for early 2015, if everything goes alright we might have an open beta next year and perhaps full release by 2016.
Posting on the forums for the first time in a while just because I really need to make sure this is said: One of the characters is, essentially, a giant intelligent gorilla from the freaking moon.
Your location, your username...
One look at Winston, and I was reminded of Cheston, another gorilla from another futuristic game involving firearms.
Yeah, me too.
I wonder how many other really intelligent gorillas media's got, I'm reminded of one in Justice League too.
Looking at the character pages, some things just seem odd. I mean, what the heck is the point of the monk robot? Everyone else does flashy stuff but he just shoot balls that sometimes do more damage? And passive healing. Odd gameplay design. Also, the girl who teleports and rewinds time and other cool stuff gets an ult that's... essentially just a grenade? Are grenades so powerful in this model that they needed to be ults?
Well, either way I'm intrigued despite lacking any interest in the genre.
I am interested in your Team Fortress 2 2 video game. Was there any news on whether the multiplayer is drop-in/drop-out, or how that was going to work?
Haven't read anything other than that it's gonna be 6 v 6.
I'm drawing parallels with Unreal Tournament, combined with the character abilities of a MOBA.
That's to say, I love how varied all of the characters look. No two of them look the same; they seem to fulfill their respective sort of "classes" but they all look really different. But are they all a part of Overwatch? The screen in the actual trailer made it look like a lot of the guys on the "bad team" were also a part of it.
That's to say, the trailer really makes me think this could be a pretty good-looking Disney/Pixar movie XD
I'm pretty sure every character's appendage would have a hat if that were the case.
But not much has been announced so that could still be a possibility.
First look. Kaplan suggests they might try telling more of story using cinematics like the trailer, Meet the Overwatch Team still unconfirmed. Sounds like the game's ability resource is of the mana pool style but pretty quickly recharging.
Still no idea on pricing though.

the game's Battle.Net site has some character bios. Most of the roster either was or wanted to be part of Overwatch with the exceptions of Reaper, Widowmaker, and the two omnic characters.
Ah, alright. I guess they can be on any team, even the bad guys working with the good guys.
Oh yeah for sure. You can see it in the website's character previews.
Winston reminded me of Beast, actually.
Yeah, I was thinking the same thing when I saw his glasses in the cinematic. All the characters look awesome, I'm most interested in Tracer and Mercy at the moment.
Also, Overwatch heroes will be crossing over into Heroes of the Storm in due time.

How well does it match the trope?
