Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel was one of the first people who got to try out everything new coming to Overwatch at BlizzCon 2019 including PvE content and the new game mode.
xQc came to BlizzCon 2019 along with Team Canada for the World Cup but took time out of his busy schedule to play the new Overwatch content on stream with chat.
Overwatch 2 was the biggest news of BlizzCon 2019 for a lot of fans and Felix was one of the first people who got to try out some of the new content.
What did Felix think of Overwatch 2?
xQc played the demo with fellow streamers Brandon ‘Seagull’ Larned, Francine ‘FRAN’ Vo, and Tom ‘Stylosa’ Stewart – and of course, he started out on tank as Reinhardt.
The stream team made their way through the PvE demo pretty easily, at first at least, and the new take on Overwatch seemed to win xQc over.
The Canadian also got the chance to try out Overwatch’s new ‘Push’ game mode along with the new Toronto map it takes place on.
“This looks pretty sharp actually,” xQc said while his team began their push. “So he (the pushing robot) stops entirely when it’s being contested.”
‘Push’ is described on the official Overwatch site as: “A new, symmetrical map type that will launch with Overwatch 2, teams battle to take control of a robot that begins in a central location, then push it toward the enemy base. Either team may take control of the robot at any time. The team that pushes the robot furthest onto the enemy side wins the game.”
What else did we learn about Overwatch 2 at BlizzCon?
xQc’s Team Canada may not have gotten the result they wanted in this year’s Overwatch World Cup, going 0-4, fans did get a good look at what’s coming to the game.
The PvE Hero and Story missions give Overwatch’s heroes their own talent trees, but this feature won’t be available in PvP.
The first ‘Push” mode map Toronto was also debuted at BlizzCon 2019 and seemed to be a hit among Canadian fans, xQc included.
