Playing support in Overwatch looks incredibly fun

1 min read


Overwatch made a huge splash with its “we’re better than Pixar” cinematic and interesting aesthetic for in-game visuals during debut. The first-person, team-based shooter from the creators of Diablo and StarCraft hasn’t really made a peep since then though – which was all remedied with a long look at one of the support characters you’ll get to play as. And for a support, he looks incredibly offensive.

Zenyatta is an “omnic monk” with a biomechanics makeup, which makes his monk-like features all the more ironic. He’s a support, which means you’ll be busy blasting orbs at teammates to heal them rather than damage other players – although there is a fair amount of offensive attacking prowess in his repertoire.

What I absolutely love the most though is the animations. Seeing Zenyatta’s hands flick, click and come together based on the attacks he uses is magical. It really does a good job of drawing me not only into the game, but the lore behind the character as well. If I’m playing as a weird robotic monk, I want it to feel like that – and Overwatch nails it on the head here.

The online shooter still doesn’t have a released date, and I’m not too sure we’ll get much more at E3. So for now, sit back and take this in – because I have no idea when there’s going to be more. I can say that I’m a smidgen more excited for Overwatch now though.

    Shouldn’t take too long for this to break into Youtube’s top ten list.

      One would think that it would considering some of the rubbish already on the list that this has to compete against.
