About the Game -

Overwatch is a highly stylized team-based shooter set on a near-future earth. Every match is an intense multiplayer showdown pitting a diverse cast of heroes, mercenaries, scientists, adventurers, and oddities against each other in an epic, globe-spanning conflict.

In Overwatch, bold characters with extraordinary abilities f!ght across fantastic yet familiar battlegrounds. Teleport past rockets while an ally dives behind a double-decker hoverbus on the cobblestone streets of London. Shield your team from a shadowy archer’s ambush, then hunt him through a bazaar beneath a high-tech Egyptian pyramid.



Features -

•Teams will compete in 6v6 objective-based battles set across the world.

•Every battlefield is iconic and built to allow each character’s signature abilities to shine. f!ghts shift from streets to rooftops to open skies as teams
play off of each others’ powers, clashing over dynamic mission objectives.

•The action is unbounded, the heroes are vibrant, and the potential to creatively combine powers is limitless. Team up and accomplish the incredible.

Welcome to Overwatch -
In Overwatch, you control one of several heroes in competitive 6-person team shooting matches. Battle over objectives, take down the other team, and achieve victory.


Choosing Your Heroes -()
Before you begin a game of Overwatch, you’ll need to choose a hero to play.

Maybe controlling a cannon-toting, genetically-engineered ape from the moon appeals to you. Or, you might prefer zipping around as a teleporting, time-traveling freedom f!ghter. Who do you want to be?




Playing Your Role -

[pic - click to view]



Offense -
Offense heroes are the damage dealers on their team. Your goal: seek out, engage, and destroy the enemy.

Defense -
Defense heroes control the battlefield, interrupting enemy attacks and fortifying locations. As a defense hero, your job is to stop the opposing team’s advance.

Tank -
Tank heroes soak damage and break apart fortified positions, like closely-grouped enemies and narrow chokepoints. If you’re a tank, you lead the charge.

Support -
Support heroes empower their allies, healing and shielding them, boosting their damage, and providing vital utility. As support, you’re the backbone of your team’s survival.




Maps -
In Overwatch, heroes do battle in diverse locations around the world. From the technological marvel of Numbani to the manufacturing powerhouse of Volskaya, each map has a unique layout and specific win conditions that your team must meet in order to secure victory.


Assault -
Attackers f!ght to capture a series of objectives; defenders hold them off until time runs out.

Escort -
Attackers escort a payload to a delivery point, while defenders strive to keep the payload from reaching its destination before time elapses.

Control -
Two teams f!ght to hold a single objective at a time; the first team to win two rounds wins the match.

Assault/Escort -
Attackers first capture a payload, then escort it to its destination; defenders attempt to hold them back.

Playing A Match -

Selecting Heroes -
Before a match begins, you’ll need to pick a hero. Consider the map, talk with your teammates, and keep an eye on your team composition when choosing your hero. If your team is on defense and your first goal is to hold an objective, you may want more defense heroes like Junkrat and Bastion.

As the tactical situation changes during a match, you may find that you’d like to change the hero you’re playing. It’s easy; in your team’s starting area, press (PC: H; PS4/XB1: D-Pad left) and select your new hero. Just remember that your ultimate ability's charge level will be reset!

Health and death -
The amount of damage a hero can take before dying is represented by their Health . Health can be recovered by collecting health packs, found in fixed locations throughout each map, or by certain heroes’ abilities (especially Support heroes). When a hero’s Health is reduced to zero, they die, but they’ll return (“respawn”) shortly. While you wait for a dead teammate to respawn, your team is at a disadvantage. Try your best to keep them (and yourself) alive!

In addition to Health, heroes can receive boosts to their survivability in the form of shields and armor, which absorb damage before Health.

Ending a Match -
When one team fulfills a map’s victory conditions, the match is over, and that team’s won. All players will be able to see everyone’s contributions, vote on the most valuable players, give feedback on the match, and watch the Play of the Game. You can customize your Play of the Game pose with items from Loot Boxes.




Game Modes -
There are many ways to play Overwatch. We recommend starting with the tutorial to learn the fundamentals of play; once you’ve completed it, head to the Main Menu to try out:

Practice Range -
Visit a training area and experiment with your abilities against practice bots. Use this mode to hone your skills or learn a new hero.

Play/Practice vs A.I. -
Play against AI-controlled opponents on any map you choose. Use these modes to try out different maps and learn how multiple heroes work.

Quick Play -
Square off against other players at your skill level.

Custom Game -
Change the rules of the game with custom modifiers (like disallowing heroes, increasing Ultimate ability charge rate, etc.).

Weekly Brawl -
Take part in experimental matches with rulesets that change each week.

Competitive Play -
Test your skill against other competitive players and climb the ranks when you win!




Making Progress -

[pic - click to view]


As you play games of Overwatch, you’ll gain levels, unlocking new customization options to make your heroes look and sound unique! Customize your characters in the Hero Gallery (accessible from the main menu).



Loot -

[pic - click to view]


A random selection of customization options come packaged in Loot Boxes—you’ll unlock one box every time you level up, and can purchase more in the in-game Shop. Loot Boxes have a chance to contain credits you can use to acquire any specific cosmetics you want. You’ll also receive a new Portrait Frame every 10 levels (until you’ve earned them all).


Achievements and Trophies -

When you accomplish a feat of persistence or talent, you’ll unlock a commemorative badge of honor. You can view a detailed breakdown of your achievements and trophies (along with your experience level and play style) and share them with your friends from the Career Overview pane of the main menu (or the top menu of this website).

GameSpot - 9
Overwatch encourages a more tangible sort of progression: that of filling a critical role on your team and understanding its intricacies the more you play, adapt, and grow. There is a genuine learning process here. There is real value to the time you spend understanding these overlapping systems.

It's that intoxicating path of discovery that makes Overwatch so varied, so rewarding, and ultimately another seminal release from developer Blizzard. Overwatch is an intelligent cascade of disparate ideas, supporting one another, pouring into one another, and coiling around themselves as they flow into the brilliant shooter underneath.

The Good
Multifarious cast of spectacular heroes
Varied and nuanced map design
Engaging learning process
Layers upon layers of overlapping systems

The Bad
Randomized loot system


IGN - 9.4
Overwatch is an incredible achievement in multiplayer shooter design. It bobs and weaves almost perfectly between being the quick-fix adrenaline hit you might want after a long day of work, and the thoughtful, strategic multiplayer experience that becomes the center of evening-long binges with friends. It might not have the most exhaustive list of maps and modes, but it provides nearly endless opportunities for exhilarating, coordinated play. When you’re at the center of it, it feels like nothing else.

The Good
Bursting with character
Versatile skills
Excellent map design +Tactical depth
Tactical depth

The Bad
Sparse modes


GameInformer - 10/10
Overwatch doesn’t have a campaign or any single-player/offline aspects worthy of note, but its profound ability to provide drastically different experiences with each hero ensures that fresh explorations and hours of renewed enjoyment are a single tap away. Concern regarding content offerings grow when a multiplayer-only experience arrives, but Overwatch’s laser focus on providing a polished arena where every game tells its own tale provides many hours of entertainment. In addition, Blizzard is not dividing the community or locking characters behind paywalls, as all future maps and characters will be free.

Overwatch is an amazing experience. It’s fresh and consistently fun, with matches that are great in random groups, but astonishingly good when played with friends. Blizzard has taken its masterful art of polishing and perfection to the team shooter, and things will never be the same.


Destructoid - 10/10
Surprisingly this is also one of the smoothest Blizzard launches yet. Outside of a snafu that caused the game to launch 20 minutes late, I have no major complaints. There's no massive lockouts, no annoying error codes that you have to Google -- it works, and every character, level, and gametype is unlocked from day one.

Truly, I believe that we'll be seeing a lot more of Overwatch in the years to come. Blizzard has a great track record when it comes to long-term support, and given how good it is out of the gate, it can only get better from here. Blizzard has truly snatched victory from the draws of defeat.


Escapist - 5/5
Overwatch is a fast, fun, and fresh take on the class-based shooter. Blizzard has made sure its first new IP in 17 years is polished to perfection. If you yearn for the days of old-school Team Fortress 2, where the game was tight, lightweight, and balanced, then Overwatch is for you.


PSLifestyle - 10/10
Overwatch makes no mistake in identifying its audience: anyone and everyone that wants to take a shot. It’s ironic to imagine a title about a fragmented team f!ghting amongst itself serving as a big unifier, but that might just be what we need. At a time when the division between our hobby’s constituents seems more visible than ever, Overwatch reminds us that we’re more alike than different — if we let them, games can bring us together. I don’t know about you, but I think that’s something well worth f!ghting for.


Polygon - 8
There's no question that Overwatch is a masterfully designed game. The wide array of amazing, unique characters, and the original ways they interact with one another, make for a peerless teamplay experience in the shooter space. Some issues, like a dissatisfying progression system and a hostility to solo players, hinder the overall experience, but the core of Overwatch remains strong throughout. It's an easy recommendation to make, so long as you've got some friends to back you up.


PCGamer - 88
As good as it is, there are some rough patches to be found underneath Blizzard's peerless polish. For that reason, Team Fortress 2 remains my favourite class-based shooter. Its characters feel more intricately woven, with a wider range of utility. Overwatch, however, comes in a pretty close second, and with the benefit of not carrying years of experimental baggage. It's microtransactions are better, too, thanks to them being purely cosmetic. Of course, that's likely in part to the fact the game isn't free to begin with.

Crucially, though, unless Blizzard do something drastically wrong, Overwatch is only going to get better. It'll need new maps eventually, preferably before the current 12 get stale, and there are plenty of tweaks and alterations that it could benefit from. Whatever happens in the future, what Overwatch offers right now is an excellent start.
