Blizzard Announces Overwatch

Blizzard has opened up BlizzCon 2014 with the announcement of Overwatch, a "supercharged team-based shooter" which will begin beta testing next year (the trademark for this was discovered in April). Signups for the beta are underway right now on the brand-new Overwatch website where they offer a cinematic trailer and a gameplay trailer. Here's more:
The action of Overwatch takes place in a technologically advanced, highly stylized future earth. In a time of global crisis, an international task force of soldiers, scientists, adventurers, and oddities known as Overwatch had come together to restore peace to a war-torn world. After many years, the group’s influence waned, and it was eventually disbanded. Overwatch might be gone now . . . but the world still needs heroes.

With an emphasis on accessibility and pure fun, Overwatch brings Blizzard’s signature easy-to-learn, hard-to-master gameplay to the FPS genre. Harnessing the power of their hero of choice, players will join forces in teams of six and battle each other across a range of futuristic global locations, from the hologram-lit streets of London to a bazaar in the shadows of a high-tech Egyptian pyramid. Every battlefield is iconic and built to highlight each character’s unique abilities, and fights can shift from streets to rooftops to open skies within the span of a breath.

“Overwatch is our take on a vibrant, near-future universe with amped-up characters and action-packed team-based gameplay,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “With every new Blizzard game, we look at our favorite aspects of a genre and put our own spin on things. Our goal with Overwatch is to create an awesome FPS experience that’s more accessible to a much wider audience while delivering the action and depth that shooter fans love.”

And Diablo original?
Yep. Diablo was original. First time someone combined a rogue type game with real time fights thus creating the action RPG or Hack 'n Slash.

Warcraft was one the first RTS. Blizzard and Westwood, fighting for the top in this very new genre.
