But Blizzard is still working on its roadmap for Overwatch and, as GamesRadar+ recently reported, there’s a new mode called Hero Missions in the works for Overwatch’s upcoming successor. In the original game, each hero has a handful of missions they take on, all of which are themed around the characters’ history. As the story goes, the main mission during the ‘Recruitment’ mission takes place at the 1893 World Trade Center, and you can choose between two characters to tackle a different topic. In addition to the missions’ themes, each mission also had a number of themed objectives that delivered a few things that didn’t make it into the main story: namely, the destruction of an enemy base and the capture of a flag. Now, you can choose between one of five characters to tackle each mission, with the choice presented on the HUD to take on the objectives as you see fit. You can “take the mission” which tasks you to take out the objectives, but you can also “defend the mission” that tasks you to defend the mission from waves of enemies. By defending the mission, you can earn experience and level up your character, which carries over into the main story and lets you unlock new characters and customise your Overwatch hero. We’ve reached out to Blizzard for clarification on these points and will update this story with any response. While the game is in Early Access, there’s still plenty more to get excited about as we wait for more content to be released. For one, there’s the recently announced World of Warcraft: Cataclysm, which is a free-to-play MMO that lets players build their own epic stories and experience the end of the world. Then there’s the Overwatch League, which will apparently be a competitive team-based game in which players choose between a pool of popular characters to make it to the top of the ranked teams. Then there’s the Overwatch Arcade, which Blizzard describes as a “premium experience” that will “deliver the most exciting content the Heroes community has to offer, including all the content released in the Overwatch Arcade so far.” There’s no announced plans for the app, but Blizzard says it’s in the process of working with Apple to allow it to launch in the App Store. Then there’s the recently announced Overwatch: Origins, a multiplayer MOBA with a cinematic story and four-player teamplay. This will be the first game of its kind for the MOBA, and it’s reportedly coming later in 2020. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more about Overwatch: Origins, the game’s release date, and more.
