Overwatch drops 6 minutes of Tracer video in the blink of an eye

Blizzard has released the latest gameplay video for Overwatch, focusing on one of the game's quickest characters, the fast-talking Tracer.


Blizzard continues to roll out some more character videos for Overwatch. Today, the focus is on Tracer, who carries on the tradition of the mouthy, quick-as-a-hiccup scout-type character.

Of course, not only is Tracer fast, but she can also control time to a limited degree. Her Blink ability allows her to teleport forward, while her Recall ability takes her backwards in time, restoring her health, ammo, and position to where she was just seconds earlier.

To get a better look at Tracer, Blizzard has helpfully offered up this six-minute video.

If that's not enough, Blizzard has been keeping up with the reveal videos over the last week. If you missed this last week, here's the video for the gunslinger McCree. This 13-minute video puts his trusty six-shooter on display, along with his Deadeye ultimate ability that allows him to rack up kills in an instant.

Those looking for a little less gunpowder in their weaponry can opt for the marksman Hanzo. He carries around a bow and a slew of different arrow types, all of which can be seen in this nine-minute video.

The Overwatch beta is kicking off later this year. Sign-ups are open over on Battle.net.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

        Seriously, Blizzard nailed it with this, action looks awesome fast and the TTK is fast enough to make it not a big damage sponge battle. Tracer looks incredible fun to use once you can keep track of where you are teleporting around like that.

        The fact that it pretty much looks and plays TF2 makes me happy, hopefully it isn't plagued by a million alternate weapons and silly hats. I assume it will be an "add more characters" sort of game more than an "add more weapons for existing characters" thing, it keeps things easier to track when playing.

          Tracer was the big favorite at Blizzcon. People went nuts with her during my hands-on time.
