A weekend of rest and relaxation awaits you, so while you figure out what game to play before Ragnarok arrives, check out today’s top stories. It’s been a big day as usual too, capped off with the reveal of a new Tank Hero coming to Overwatch 2.
Our other biggest stories today include leaked gameplay footage of Hideo Kojima’s upcoming title Overdose, and the news that Lionsgate wants to make a triple-A John Wick game. For all the details, read on.
Overwatch 2 Reveals New Tank Hero Ramattra
Looks like Kiriko’s time as the newcomer is soon coming to an end, as Blizzard has revealed Hero 36 – a new Tank called Ramattra. While we didn’t get to see any footage of Ramattra in action, we did get an origin story trailer, which reveals his relationship with Zenyatta as well as his personal goals and motivations. A Blizzard developer did gives us some idea as to how he’ll play though, as Ramattra will be able to switch between his Omnic and Nemesis forms depending on whether he’s on the attack or the defensive.
Hideo Kojima’s new project Overdose has been the subject of multiple leaks this past few days, but now it’s suffered its worst yet, as two minutes of gameplay footage have been shared online. The quality of the footage is extremely poor, but we do get to see Margaret Qually’s character explore a seemingly abandoned house before being set upon by supernatural creatures. We can also see the player in a window in the bottomt left corner, implying the game is being cloud streamed by phone.
Lionsgate CEO Wants To Make A “Big Triple-A” John Wick Game
If you’ve ever looked at the John Wick franchise and thought it’d make a pretty great video game, you’re not the only one, as production company Lionsgate is apparently “fielding proposals” for a big triple-A game at the moment. The last John Wick game we got was John Wick Hex, an XCOM style shooter that released back in 2019. It now seems like Lionsgate has bigger ambitions for the franchise, but we can only speculate as to which developers will put themselves forward for the job.
Pokemon Go Accidentally Leaks Brand New Scarlet & Violet ‘Mon
Pokemon Scarlet & Violet has been pretty good about leaks so far, but Pokemon Go has slipped up and given us a closer look at an unannounced ‘mon. The little guy was found by a group of Pokemon Go dataminers, and appears to be a little bug with a coin on its back. The same Pokemon was actually seen during a recent trailer for the title, tucked away behind some menu options next to a Pokemon Trainer taking a selfie.
