With Overwatch coming so close to release at the time of this writing, it’s hard to ignore how incredibly popular the IP is considering that it hasn’t even been released yet. Then again, it shouldn’t be surprising considering that the company behind Overwatch is Blizzard Entertainment, the same company that created the Warcraft series, a niche strategy game, and transformed said game into a decade-long MMORPG sensation. They were also behind the popularity that is Diablo, Starcraft, and Hearthstone, with the less successful Heroes of the Storm in tow.
Redeem Code: The Overwatch Hype is Real
Some may say that the Overwatch hype is nothing more than the standard, run-of-the-mill hype, but the beta statistics will show that it’s a bit more than that, with thousands of Beta Overwatch redeem codes already used. But let’s not get bogged down in number crunching and whatever since the game hasn’t even been released yet. Instead, let’s look at the massive, yet still budding, community of Overwatch. A simple google search will immediately net you thousands upon thousands of fan artwork, cosplay, fan coverage, and all sorts of other homages to a game that is yet to be released. That is, immediately, power to the game that no other has been able to manage. The Overwatch IP’s state right now is as if it has existed for years upon years with a large following of loyal fans that have grown up with it. It’s like freaking Star Wars. But, again, it’s not eve released to the general public yet!
We’ve got to hand it to Blizzard as they know how to market a game. Everywhere I look, adverts about Overwatch are everywhere, but not the kind of advertising that gets super annoying. They put out quality trailers and animated shorts that get word of mouth going around and the fans themselves share it across social media. This is a phenomenon that no game has ever seen before and I suspect the momentum of this hype will keep on going. Take me, for example; I simply ABHOR FPS and MOBAs in general, but the lore of Overwatch, through its many interesting characters, animations, and hullaballoo about it have piqued my interest enough to pick up the game. Compound the fact that Blizzard claims Overwatch to be both noob-friendly and challenging for shooter vets makes it all the more appealing. This hype, as far as anyone can tell, is as real as real can be and the game will be a real contender in the Esports scene. When the game finally drops, I can only look forward to how it will grow and evolve. Our watch begins now.
Watch out for promotions for PSN Redeem Code, Xbox Redeem Code, and even PC Redeem Codes in various sites or cheap promotions in marketplaces for Overwatch.
