Overwatch

An Epic Evolution
by Daniel Tack
Concept:

Two teams battle in fast, objective-based matches with a roster of distinct characters


Graphics:

The colorful characters and settings are bright, but you can always tell what's going on


Sound:

Audio is integral to the gameplay, calling out when ultimate abilities have been activated. Memorable quips from each character flow endlessly, and a spirited score enhances the action


Playability:

Incredibly easy to pick up and play, since most characters have only a single weapon and a handful of abilities. However, advanced teamplay and strategy leave plenty of room to grow


Entertainment:

Vibrant and endlessly entertaining. Whether you just want to play a few quick rounds or settle in for hours with friends, Overwatch delivers with polished panache


Replay:

High

As the clock winds down to zero, you backtrack in time to drop a perfect pulse bomb on the enemy position, blowing apart the greedy robot-turned-turret and his teammate, a slick sniper assassin who was too busy tracking her prey to notice your explosive gift. The game heads into overtime as the payload wagon rests mere inches away from the victory point, but your team has just been annihilated by an enormous magical dragon. Then you hear it: "Heroes never die!" As your one chance, your team's Mercy hero activates her ultimate ability and brings your entire group back to life for one last stand. After Mei brings a scientifically sound winter to your opponents by freezing them, victory is yours. Moments like these define Overwatch, including amazing victories and last-second defeats. No matter what happens - win or lose - you're going to have fun. Overwatch may not have a campaign to speak of, entertaining stories emerge from the interactions with your team and your enemies.

Blizzard's influence on gaming is unquestionable, having redefined and reinvented almost every genre it has set its sights on, including real-time strategy, collectible card games, and MMOs. Wading into first-person shooter waters, specifically the team-based shooter, is a daunting prospect for any company. Even so, Blizzard has done it again, pairing objective-focused play and fast matches that encourage you to pursue objectives rather than kill/death/assist stats.

Overwatch's strength lies in its simplicity and polish, much like Dota 2 or League of Legends. Two teams of six players each do battle on a handful of maps, and modes all boil down to some form of escorting, capturing, or protecting an objective. Other modes may be available, but the game is at its best by keeping things close to the core, with maps everyone knows and easy-to-understand modes. While expectations today may call for a single-player campaign or a wide variety of modes, Overwatch's consistently chaotic gameplay stands on its own, giving players the tools to ensure that no game ever plays out the same. These elements simply form the canvas where players paint a new and unique experience, match after match.

Welcome to Overwatch®

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.

It ended the crisis and helped to 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. Overwatch is gone... but the world still needs heroes.

Choose A Hero

Overwatch features a wide array of unique heroes, ranging from a time-jumping adventurer, to an armored, rocket-hammer-wielding warrior, to a transcendent robot monk. Every hero plays differently, and mastering their abilities is the key to unlocking their potential. No two heroes are the same.

Play Your Role

Whether you're engaging in combat on the front line, providing defensive cover with your energy shield, or supporting your allies by amplifying their damage, every hero's abilities are designed to be effective as part of a team. Learning to utilize your abilities in concert with your teammates' is the key to victory.

Team-Based Objectives

Teams of heroes do battle across the planet. From protecting the secrets of the mysterious Temple of Anubis, to safely escorting an EMP device through King's Row, the world is your battlefield.

  • PAYLOAD - The attacking team's objective is to move the payload to a delivery point, while the defenders must halt the attackers' progress until time runs out.
  • POINT CAPTURE - Two teams battle over control of the map, one team on offense, the other on defense. The attackers' goal is to capture critical objectives, while the defenders must maintain control over them until time runs out.
