Blizzard Gives Overwatch Car Wheels, Ruins Game Forever
Overwatch just broke one of its big design rules: Every car is a flying car. And in response, fans are deeming the game “unplayable.”
Last week, Overwatch introduced a new PvE mode along with its “Uprising” event. I love it. But I didn’t notice a crucial thing: There is a car that has wheels. Sure, the events of “Uprising” occur seven years before Overwatch, which itself takes place around 2076. But is seven years a large enough gap to justify this horrible transgression?
Inspired, DarwinStreams made a video illustrating the issue at hand:
The conversation continued over on Reddit, where Overwatch players exclaimed that “This is why I don’t play Overwatch anymore. . . I already called my lawyer” and “This is absolutely shocking and I will probably stop playing until this issue is resolved.”
It’s good that us Overwatch fans can joke about our tendency to lose our shit over small tweaks to the game. It is good. But we also hope that this glaring error will get fixed immediately, or at least immediately after Soldier’s ultimate attack is nerfed.
