    Cinematic trailer. Looks like derp kids cartoon.


    Gameplay trailer.

    They need a bigger roster. It's a bit underwhelming even for a starting point of a new setting.

    They've shown 12. If they're copying TF2 I wouldn't expect more. Especially since they're going for that "very approachable" angle D:

    Blizzard missed the train on creating Dota 2, so I guess it's only fair that they get to create Team Fortress 3. Valve can't count to 3 anyway.

    Of course.

    Remember when I said their next IP would be a F2P cash cow with microtransactions? Yep... This is probably what they salvaged from Titan and made into their own TF2. Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, Overwatch... anyone seeing a pattern? Copy existing F2P games and just slap a coat of Blizz-paint on them.

    Why? TF2 has like... eight classes? This isn't a MOBA.

    Looks generic, because of Pixar looking graphics and TF2 style gameplay. So... nothing new.

    I came into this thread ready to bash this thing, because fuck Blizzard. I started watching the cinematic trailer, got bored and stopped after a minute. I started watching the gameplay trailer, and...call me a fag, but I want to play this. For years now, we've gotten no FPS games that aren't Call of Duty or its clones. Here we've got an FPS that uses colors other than gray and brown, involves fast movement in three dimensions, and has varied gameplay depending on which character you choose. Isn't this what we've been saying we wanted for a long time?

    Bruticis will be buying me Overwatch in-game hats.

    This is basically just TF3. You haven't seen anything like it for awhile because Valve already made it years ago.

    What in the flying fuck is this Pixar shit? This looks too much like a copy of TF2, but I guess that goes with the Blizzard tradition of copying whatever is popular.

    What's the point of making a trailer for a game for 5 to 10 year olds if they're going to be 15 to 20 year olds by the time you release the actual game?

    Tigole is on stage talking about it so all but confirmed. Looks like pardo took the fall for pissing 7 years of studio time down the drain.

    Why should I want a TF2 clone with childish fantasy art style?

    This is what I wanted for a long time:

    They are doing a bad job at hiding how this is a rehash of a MMO... the cinematic trailer features many heroes that aren't on the game, including that wolverine guy with a cowboy hat & cigar that appears a lot.

    And what the hell are those names? They expect people to go "I'll play Winston!" ? This works when you have 999 billion characters, but 12? He's the gorilla, ffs.

    Really?

    And I'm off cause tired of these cartoon looking craps, no matter which devs deliver.
    New franchise from Blizz...for about 17 years? Ok.


    Kick this thread to MMO section or just retartoland.
