Blizzard announced at Blizzcon that the base price, on PC only, will be $40. The premium version “Origins,” will come with character skins and some “digital goodies.” Overwatch Origins will be available for PC, XB1, and PS4 for a price of $60. Both version will include a total of 21 heroes and I’m sure more will be added as dlc.
Look for Overwatch to drop Spring 2016. Here is a new trailer for the Origins edition.
The title is League of Explorers and it comes out next Thursday. A lot of new stuff is included as well. Here is a rundown of whats included straight from the website.
New Cards: The League of Explorers contains 4 wings packed with fiendish bosses, puzzling traps, and ancient mysteries for you to discover. When you overcome a boss or an encounter for the first time, you will earn brand-new cards for your collection!
Legendary: When you defeat all the challenges in a wing for the first time, you will be rewarded with that wing’s legendary card – for example, Elise Starseeker!
Class Challenges: The League of Explorers also includes nine all-new class challenges that task you with using a special pre-built deck to prove your skill. Succeed, and the new class cards are yours.
New Game Boards: Immerse yourself in the adventure with all-new playing fields!
Meet the League: Make friends with renowned explorer and fearless dwarven historian Brann Bronzebeard and the other members of the League of Explorers: dashing treasure hunter extraordinaire Reno Jackson, brilliant night elf scholar Elise Starseeker, and gentleman (gentle-fish?) murloc adventurer Sir Finley Mrrgglton!
New Keyword: The League of Explorers introduces a new keyword that lets you do some digging of your own: Discover! You’ll treasure the opportunity to dig up cards and select the one you need the most!
Heroic Mode: If you’re ready for a challenge, you can try taking on the Heroic Mode version of any mission that you’ve cleared. This extra-tough game mode is designed for players eager to test their puzzle-solving skills against incredibly powerful opponents. Bring your best deck and your sharp wits.
The SFV beta was updated last night and includes a portion of story mode material as well as a tutorial mode.
The story/tutorial mode takes place way back in the Alpha days when Ryu and Ken were training with Gouken. Ryu and Ken are even sporting their classic Street Fighter Alpha costumes. The best part is that this mode is live right now in the Street Fighter V beta! So go play it right now!
This is a very neat surprise on Capcom’s part. I’m very interested to see what else they might do between now and February. You can check out a video of the story mode below as well.
The trailer shows off some of the apocalyptic world we will be exploring. You will also see some of the NPCs that you will encounter throughout the game. This can be a little spoil worthy if you want to keep a lot of this a surprise so watch at your own will. Check out the trailer below.
Fallout 4 drops Tuesday November 10th for PS4, XB1, and PC.
Gamestop spilled the beans today by reporting that Overwatch is indeed headed for consoles as well as PC. The game will be a full priced $60 game and it is available to pre-order as of today. This shoots down the biggest question of whether Overwatch was going to be a free to play game.
As of right now, Overwatch has a place holder date of December 31,2016 and is available for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. We will find out more from Blizzcon this coming weekend. Now excuse me as I go back to hoping I get in the closed beta sometime very, very soon.
