Overwatch Beta this Fall, Two New Characters Revealed

Two new heroes, a payload map and release window for the Overwatch beta were revealed today by Blizzard during their PAX East panel.

Zarya is a pink-haired, Russian tank class armed with a particle cannon, the ability to project a shield bubble and a gravity bomb that draws enemies in.

McCree is the Clint Eastwood of the bunch with his trusty six-shooter and deadeye ultimate ability, allowing him to mark and take down all enemies within line of sight.

Both characters were showcased alongside a new map called Watchpoint: Gibraltar.

The public beta test will begin sometime in fall of this year so be sure to sign up. If you simply cannot wait until then, Overwatch will also be playable from March 6-8 at booth 8116 in the PAX East Expo Hall.
