Blizzard’s multiplayer FPS Overwatch adds a gunslinger and a bodybuilder

Sign up for the beta coming this fall

I keep forgetting that Blizzard is off working on a team-based shooter called Overwatch. Maybe part of the problem is the name? It’s definitely not the characters — there’s a spacesuit-wearing gorilla with glasses named Winston, for crying out loud. That speaks to me.

This fine GDC x PAX week (make it stop!), Blizzard announced two new characters: McCree, a revolver-wielding outlaw, and Zarya, a Russian bodybuilder with a particle cannon.

There are accompanying videos, but don’t expect much in the way of presentation here. They’re a rather no-frills demonstration of the characters’ various moves, which I actually appreciate.
