Soldiers. Scientists. Adventurers. Oddities.
In a time of global crisis, an international task force of heroes banded together to restore peace to a war-torn world: OVERWATCH.
Overwatch ended the crisis, and helped maintain peace in the decades that followed, inspiring an era of exploration, innovation, and discovery. But, after many years, Overwatch’s influence waned, and it was eventually disbanded.
Now, conflict is rising across the world again, and the call has gone out to heroes old and new. Are you with us?
Overwatch is an online class-based multiplayer shooter. It is developed by Blizzard, who are famously behind World of Warcraft and Starcraft.
In Overwatch, two teams of six players battle over different objectives. Attacking and defending control points, or pushing a payload to a target.
There are currently 22 classes, or “heroes” as the game calls them, split into four main categories: Attack, Defense, Tank, and Support. Each one has different abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. So you want to pick your class based on what your team currently lacks, what the map objective is, and also what the other team has going on.
The game has a cartoony Pixar-esque art-style to it that I really like.
If you like playing Valve’s Team Fortress 2, you’ll enjoy this game.
