It's been a good four years and, to celebrate, some of the developers have written a cute little post detailing some of their favourite moments working on Overwatch.

Overwatch ditches hero pools in competitive play for good

Blizzard are changing up Overwatch's hero pool system again, except this time around they're just straight up removing it from regular competitive play. The system, which involves banning several characters each week, was originally implemented to stop the meta from turning stale, and it's seen a few changes already in its short life. Just last month I reported that they'd ditched hero pools for lower…

The game event cancellations are pushing even deeper into the year now, as Blizzard have announced BlizzCon 2020 is a no-go.

Overwatch player discovers long-hidden Diablo reference by punching barrels

For as much as Blizzard players love loot, it took them a hot minute to find this hidden Overwatch easter egg. But after idly punching breakable barrels during a round on Blizzard World, one Overwatch player discovered a legendary drop of their own - a years-old Diablo reference that may have lay undiscovered by the community since the map debuted in 2018.

The Overwatch League’s Vancouver Titans have dropped their entire roster mid-season

Looks like there's trouble in paradise at the Overwatch League, as the Vancouver Titans have released their entire team roster right in the middle of the 2020 season. In a letter to fans they explain the decision stemmed from issues with the League's online matches, after homestands were cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This unfortunately put the team in a weird position, being based…

Overwatch has ditched hero pools for lower ranked players

Looks like Blizzard are starting to realise that most Overwatch players aren't all in the Top 500, as they've removed hero pools for lower competitive ranks. Players from Bronze up to Diamond will no longer have to deal with the weekly hero bans because, let's face it, those of us at these levels never use the same compositions as the Overwatch League, do we?"Competitive play…

Overwatch’s revamped chat wheel will finally let you say sorry

You know what you did. Your team knows what you did. That Reinhardt play was awful, but how are you supposed to express remorse? Open the chat box? Plug in a headset? Nonsense. Until now, Overwatch had absolutely no way of letting your team know you messed up. Today's PTR update changes everything, letting you customise your chat wheel with new voice commands to drive…

Overwatch heroes all have googly eyes for April Fools

April Fools is not a day to scare or mislead people with mean tricks. April Fools is for lighthearted pranks, and silly jokes. April Fools is a day to stick googly eyes on all of your video game characters. If you load up Overwatch today, you might notice that Blizzard have done exactly that - it's not just the heroes that have received the googly…

A cat picked this week’s hero pools for the Overwatch League

The Overwatch League casters, hosts and players alike are all holed up at home for the time being, with matches taking place online while the world waits for the Covid-19 pandemic to run its course. It seems like cabin fever is starting to set in though, as this week they've adopted a cat into the analyst's panel to decide on the hero pools.It went about…

Overwatch’s new hero Echo is officially “coming soon”

Alright alright, you can stop speculating now because Blizzard have finally confirmed that the long-teased Echo will be Overwatch's next hero. Or, perhaps continue speculating because they've told us next to zilch about her. Although we've seen her pop up in previous animated shorts, today's very brief teaser does not much more than confirm that she's en-route to the game.

The Overwatch League is going online for its spring matches

Despite having to cancel its homestands due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Overwatch League isn't giving up on the 2020 season just yet. Instead of taking their show on the road, Blizzard have set up a brand new schedule to host League matches online. There are obviously some complications with holding competitive events like this online when the teams are so spread across the globe…

Looks like Overwatch has started teasing hero 32

Here we go again. Blizzard are teasing us with the tiniest pieces of Overwatch lore and I can't get enough of it. Yesterday, the Overwatch Twitter account tweeted out a personal log from a Dr. Mina Liao, who's been building an Omnic codenamed "the Athena prototype". Now, I don't know about you, but this all sounds like we're about to get our first proper look…

Overwatch revisits and remixes all three co-op Archives missions

Once more, it's time for the fine folks at Overwatch to put down their guns, stop shooting each other for a moment, pick up their guns again and go blast some robots and armoured goons. It's Archives time, team. With no new story to plug through this time, all three of Overwatch's co-op stories are coming back with wild new variations, alongside the requisite bucket…

Bleeding Edge has a cyborg dolphin in a crab mech and I love him with all my heart

Another day, another scarily-intelligent animal in a four-legged mech with an uncomfortably deep AI voice translating its thoughts. That's right, I'm obviously talking about Wrecking Ball Mekko, the final character revealed for Ninja Theory's upcoming team-based brawler, Bleeding Edge.I know this game is constantly compared to Overwatch, but come on, they've literally put in a character that sounds like a water Hammond. While both heroes…

Overwatch’s 3-2-1 experiment is finished and I’m glad to be rid of it

Overwatch's very first Experimental game mode has come to an end. Over the last week, the game featured a Triple Damage mode as a way for Blizzard to test how they could reduce queue times for folks who want to play damage heroes.For starters, what a great feature the Experimental card is! It's a lot more accessible than the Player Test Realm (PTR), which requires…
