'Overwatch' News & Update: Blizzard To Unveil New Maps And Heroes On 'Overwatch 2017'?

Close

Blizzard Entertainment's first foray into the first-person shooter arena has now started to pay off, as "Overwatch" continue to gain more popularity in the gaming world.

Currently, it has its special Christmas-themed event, where it introduced new skins, seasonal events, items and more. Then, there's a special Brawl mode for ice-spraying hero Mei. The 6v6 Mei's Snowball Offensive replaces her gun with a snowball gun that can only be fired once before taking a reload. Reloading of weapon can be done at snow piles located around the level, by scooping more snow off the ground.

In addition to the game mode changes, the Christmas-themed event also brings several other highly-anticipated tweaks to the game. However, the players are still looking beyond the "Overwatch" Christmas update and are wondering what "Overwatch" 2017 might bring to the game.

New Heroes And Maps In 'Overwatch' 2017?

According to PC Gamer, Blizzard Entertainment might add more heroes in the upcoming "Overwatch" 2017. The new heroes are said to balance the skills and up the ante for six-person teams. "Overwatch" fans are still hoping that the developer will introduce new maps to "Overwatch" 2017.

One possible big enhancement coming is the addition of new maps and quests. One of these maps has been Ecopoint: Antarctica. This game mode is just one of the most exciting things to come to Overwatch next year, offering a significantly different gameplay experience.

Developer Blizzard has yet to announce the details for the upcoming "Overwatch" 2017. Meanwhile, while waiting for the big update, players can keep themselves busy with "Overwatch" "Winter Wonderland" and Christmas in-game events.

First introduced in May 2016, "Overwatch" is a first-shooter video game developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment for PS4, PC, and Xbox One. It's the fourth major franchise of Blizzard Entertainment and has come out from the failed MMO Project Titan.
