There’s a great risk that comes with being a little too excited for a game that’s in its alpha phase of development. There’s a big risk of disappointment. High expectations can come crashing in a downward spiral at the blink of a release date. But for some reason, having these lofty presumptions about a Blizzard title never feels anything less than warranted– especially when you consider the fact that every game the company puts out is pure gold. What won’t they scrape in the name of consistently putting out the most fun and high quality of product?
This week on Nerdist: Play, I’m going to tell you why you need to keep your telescope zoomed in on that rising star in the Blizzard universe called Overwatch. The Internet nearly lost its mind after 2 new characters were revealed at PAX East, but is Blizzard’s first foray into the first-person genre on the course to being overhyped? Will it live up to or exceed everyone’s expectations? This is why you can expect Jeff Kaplan and the rest of the gang to deliver one of the most refreshing entires in the first-person shooter genre in quite some time.
