Overwatch is a new game that is set to come out for PC, PS4, and Xbox One one May 24, 2016. Overwatch was developed by Blizzard Entertainment. Overwatch is a multiplayer first-person shooter.It will be available for $60. In a sense, it is like Call of Duty but with strange characters with different abilities and different characters roles. The four character roles include: offense characters with high speed and attack but low defense, defense characters meant to form choke points for enemies, support characters that provide buffs and debuffs for their allies and enemies respectively (such as healing or speed alterations), and tank characters that have a large amount of armor and hit points to withstand enemy attacks and draw fire away from teammates.The game offers three different game modes: assault, escort, and control. Assault is just killing each other, on escort the players must transport a vehicle across the map while the other team attacks them, and control the teams battle to take control over a control point, simple enough. Since this game is not out yet, there are no actual reviews. I am personally excited to play this game when it comes out, but have not yet played the BETA.

Smite is a 3rd person MOBA. MOBA stands for multiplayer online battle arena. Smite was developed and published by Hi-Rez Studios. In Smite, you get to choose to be different gods and goddesses from different mythologies, like Thor or Zeus or Horus, and battle against other online players. Smite is available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. On top of that, Smite is free-to-play. Originally, it was only available on PC, started back in March of 2014. All the different mythologies on the game are as followed: Chinese, Egyptian, Greek, Hindu, Japanese, Mayan, Norse and Roman mythology. Smite involves a lot of teamwork and strategy. Smite is rated an 8.5/10 on IGN, 4/5 by MMOs.com, and 4/5 by Metacritic. I would personally give this game a 7/10. I like the game because it is fun and exciting, but I am not good at the game at all.
