The Best Overwatch RIP-OFF So Far
We all know about Overwatch's huge success, so it's only natural that there are and will be other gaming companies which will try to imitate it and opt to profit from Overwatch's fame. And no, I'm not referring to games such as Paladins and Battleborn who just belong to the same genre, but they are actually quite different from Overwatch. I'm talking about some cheap rip-offs which are coming out and are basically cloning Overwatch from scratch. their big difference though is:
- That those are free-to-play
- They are playable on mobile
- They are filled with microtranscations
One such game which came out a few months ago was a game called Legend of Titan which wasn't just similar to Overwatch, it was Overwatch. The developpers went as far as to use the same textures for character and maps and the result was this:
But the actual clone that I want to talk today is way different, in fact I would describe it as hilarious at least. I first saw about that clone in Alpharad's video. And it cracked me up.
The game is described as Hero Shooter, however it isn't playable yet, it is more of a showcase for a game concept. There are some heroes, some maps and some backstory to go with it. It is unsure if this will ever go live as it is too soon to make guesses, but if it ever does I will undoubtlely play it!
You should watch the video above to get a thorough understanding, but in case you don't want to. I have prepared for you some screenshots of the roster's funniest and most iconic characters. By the way, the characters' names and backstory are the glorious result of Google translation which make those character even more hilarious.
From the thumbnail as you can see, we have the first Overwatch inspired character, Mc Cree's distant cousin, ranger Jenny.
(Not Mc - Cree)
Moving on, we have Sephiroth from....WAIT what?! Where is his ridiculously long katana. I call fake, probably he realized that his sword was impractical and decided to master the art of throwing knives.
(Not - Genji?)
Next, my personal favorite from this roster, Soldier 9257.
Did they want so badly to add a number next to him so they picked the most random number ever and BAM....there you have him.
(Not - Soldier 76)
With all those heroes gathered, the game's roster couldn't miss an archer character so they invited Hawkeye from the Avengers.
Not even gonna comment on his name!
(Not - Hanzo?)
