This summer saw the release of many new games that took the gamer population by storm, including Overwatch and Pokémon Go. Taking the competition by storm, sweeping through schools, parking lots and locking people into their screens, games from Blizzard Entertainment and the world-loved Pokemon Go have people buzzing about. Here are some of the latest updates:
Released in May, the Blizzard Entertainment team-based shooter game was an immediate best seller, drawing in a ton of new players and devastating their competition (sorry Battleborn!). Shortly after launch, Blizzard introduced Competitive Play mode to Overwatch, allowing skilled players to fight in ranked matches throughout a competitive season (approximately 2 1/2 months long) and test their skills against their peers.
In most recent news, Overwatch has revealed their newest character: Ana. Ana Amari is a support sniper with the ability to heal her allies by shooting them with Biotic Darts and throwing Biotic Grenades. She can also put enemies to sleep with Sleep Darts and boost her allies’ speed and damage with a Nano Boost.
