Watch the Reaper sow death in this Overwatch gameplay preview video

Overwatch Reaper

Death comes for everyone, and the Reaper in Blizzard’s brand new IP, Overwatch, does a good job at reminding you of that. He’s a dual pistol shotgun-wielding, shadow melding, force of destruction, and we’ve got a video in glorious 60FPS demonstrating his skills on the field.

He’s shotguns sure are strong, probably compensated with that lengthy reload time and slow firing speed. It’s nice to see he has some defensive and mobility skills to help out with his squishy health pool. One appears to dissolve him into a smoky mess, allowing him to ignore damage for a short time. The second, after a channeling duration, teleports him to where he’s aiming at - great for getting above your targets.

His ultimate really shines in this particular Point Capture map. Since the enemies will naturally be grouped on the objective, Reaper can roll in and perform his shotgun spin of death, dealing huge amounts of damage to anyone in the vicinity.

We've got a bunch more of these hero previews, so head on over to our Overwatch homepage for the latest.

What a shitty FOV, guns take up half of the screen space. Is this console shooter? Also game is so edgy it sounds comical.

Dual Shotguns, actually. They're shotguns. /pedantry

Looks very slow and stiff to me, also that FOV. When I become Emperor of Earth - I'll make special FOV 60 degree glasses for developers who in the past only made games with 60 degrees field of view, and force them to wear them for the rest of their lives. Then they will regret their past arrogance. HAHAHAHAHAH

I hope these vids are leading up to a beta release announcement. The videos don't make it look all that great but then games are different when you play them. Most who have played it say it's pretty good.
