It seems Overwatch is coming to World of Warcraft (sort of).
In the next World of Warcraft patch, the single-player area called the Brawler’s Guild is coming back. The mode brings with it a number of new brawls, one of which is against the Ogrewatch, a parody of a number of Overwatch characters. Revealed by WoWhead, three characters have been confirmed for the Ogrewatch at this point. Hudson is a parody of Winston, and wields a jetpack. Dupree, who is a tribute to McCree, is a human with a cowboy hat and six-shooter, and has the High Noon ability. Stuffshrew is based off of Junkrat, and is a goblin who uses bombs.
Four other characters were found by datamining. These four characters are Blinker (Tracer), Boarguy (Roadhog), Render (Reaper), and Steingardt (Reinhardt). It is unknown if there will be more parody characters coming to World of Warcraft in the future.
World of Warcraft is available now on PC. The game’s latest expansion, entitled Legion, released last August. The expansion raised the level cap from 100 to 110, and introduced the Demon Hunter class. Overwatch is available for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The game was featured in many of Gamespresso’s Best Of lists for 2016, including Best Art, Best Gameplay, and Best Multiplayer.
