Looks like Blizzard has recently patched one of the more funny areas in their new game Overwatch. For those of you that have no idea what we are talking about or haven’t had a chance to play Overwatch yet there was a new escort level added, Route 66. In this mission you wander across the dreaded Deadlock Gang. The whole area is trashed and littered with all kinds of hints of what the Deadlock Gang was up to.
As you find the Deadlock Gang’s outhouse you notice the floor is littered with open magazines showing images of leading Overwatch women Symmetra and Mercy. When you add outhouses and girly mags, I am sure you can put together what Blizzard was going with here in the ol’ whacking cabin.
According to Failcraft, In the latest update you can see from the picture below that the outhouse door has now been closed so maybe the Deadlock Gang can keep their bathroom hijinks to themselves. I thought it was a funny little add in but I can also see a few issues with it. First, this isn’t Borderlands. I expect to see trashy language and pics in a game that is built on things like that. Second, how can you have strong female characters in the game when you are going to show them in such a way in the game.
What do you think? Is this something Blizzard should have kept in the game? Is this humor acceptable for certain games or every games. I would love to hear from our female geeks out there as well on this one. Sound off in the comments below.
