Overwatch Gameplay Trailer Shows off Bowman Hanzo

Legolas, watch your back.

Here’s over nine minutes of Blizzard’s new team-based shooter Overwatch, focusing specifically on the deadly bowman Hanzo. The map shown in this gameplay footage is King’s Row, a Point Capture level set in England. Watch the unedited footage in beautiful 1080p 60fps below!

Hanzo possesses numerous special abilities that make him a formidable opponent. The bowman has a standard Storm Bow shot, a Scatter Arrow that fragments and ricochets, and a Sonic Arrow that tracks nearby enemies. Not only is Hanzo a skilled archer, but the assassin can also summon a Dragonstrike, a giant spirit dragon that instantly kills anything in its path and can go through walls. Welp. 

Overwatch will be released on Mac and PC later this year with a beta plannedOverwatch is Blizzard’s first new franchise in 17 years. For more on the team-based shooter, be sure to read our preview right here.
