Default Maps, Modes, and More

Fun ideas for new Overwatch material.

Skins, Map areas, play modes, etc...


Example:
Mode idea-Survival
A more relaxed mode for around Halloween, hundreds of virus-infected Omnic "Zombies" are swarming a base which you defend with one team, while the other joins in with the attacking zombots.

The map is set up to favor the defending team structurally, to offset the zombies and attackers numerical advantage, lots of chokepoints and health-packs.

Most Zombots don't chase after heroes very far but damage health-pack makers and environmental blockers as they go, gradually pushing back the defenders.

I think a setting in Russian Tundra would work best, since they didn't use Overwatch much apparently they might've used other methods to fight omnics before settling on the giant Syvatlongname mech-suits.

There are a lot of places they can choose from to be the setting for their maps. I think Rio and the Australian Outback would be good places considering the conflicts there.

A couple of skin ideas:
-disco roller skater skin for Lucio
-priest T9 skin for Mercy
-Diablo demon hunter skin for Reaper
-crusader skin for Reinhardt

What are some other archetypes they could turn on their head for characters I wonder?

We have an Cowboy, a Captain America / Punisher Hybrid...

Perhaps... a New Yorker? Some kind of a constructor support that makes healing zones or shield/damage amping zones?


Or, since there's rumors of a 'support sniper' in the works, perhaps a sniper-hunting offense character, Aztec or African aesthetic could all work well...

Or a Native American that hunts Omnics and dangerously enhanced folks like Reaper with a http://navajopeople.org/blog/nayenez...of-alien-gods/ thematic? (Okay I admit it I just want a hero with a spear)

Oh I like that Native American hunter concept.

If we're talking about concepts, a support character from Numbani would be great. They could endorse peace between omnics and humanity in other parts of the world, but realize that peace and compromise isn't as easy to attain as in their utopian city. Maybe having some themes related to African gods/goddesses.

I'd also like to see a Polynesian Aquaman-esque character wielding a trident who defended the southern Pacific islands during the Crisis.

It'll probably be somebody from Africa. Lucio is from Brazil, so that's South America covered. Africa's the only major continent we don't have a hero from I believe, plus the lack of black characters overall.

If the support sniper rumours are true I'd rather see a more traditional bush hunter. The whole bow and arrow thing is covered by Hanzo and McRee is more of a jack-of-both-trades cowboy. There's enough thematic difference there I feel, even if people would shout "b-but Team Fortress 2!" and his rifle could be more traditional than Widowmaker's advanced spy tech.

I imagine if there's going to be a new African hero it will probably be Doomfist. The Numbani map has that exhibit with Doomfist the Savior, the Scourge, and the Successor, the latter of which has no name. He will probably be a tank hero of some sort. Ultimate being that skyscraper-leveling punch.

Oh man, Doomfist would be a great hero, just got a better look at that movie area, I'd never noticed the third one
