Overwatch: What is it?

DESIGNED BY: Blizzard Entertainment
GENRE: 6v6 Team-Based Shooter
PLATFORMS: All Platforms

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 fight 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. 
The heroes of Overwatch each brings their own unique powers and game-changing ultimate abilities into battle. Tracer, a former British test pilot who shrugs at danger, executes impossible acrobatic assaults thanks to her ability to teleport, drop bombs, and even reverse time.

Tracer’s time-space tricks not getting the job done? Switch heroes mid-match and command the might of Winston, an ingenious ape armed with a turbo-powered jet pack. Leap across rooftops to crash into the thick of battle, distracting your foes from their target.

The heroes of Overwatch are many, powerful, and distinct—but their potential is amplified when they assemble into a formidable team. Your options for achieving victory are endless when you and your allies can defy gravity, transform into rapid-firing turrets, or conjure billboard-sized energy shields.

12 heroes are playable at BlizzCon—with many more to come.

In Overwatch, 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. Fights shift from streets to rooftops to open skies as teams play off of each others’ powers, clashing over dynamic mission objectives.

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

    I was waiting to see a sample video. The video is really amazing to experience the wonderful effects in the game. Most of the gamers will like its graphics and design. So I am expecting a lot from the creators of this game. Keep sharing more posts here! mini server rack

    Sadly, this won’t support my PC. I checked the system requirements and it says minimum 2 GB of graphics memory. My system only has 1gb graphics and I don’t think it can be upgraded since it was built before three years. cheapest cable

    Nothing on that interests me. promotional video production. I'll watch baseball once October moves around on the grounds that the main time baseball is energizing is amid the playoffs. In any case, by then it will be week 8 in the NFL, so I won't not watch that! Would preferably watch Monday Night Football than playoff baseball! At this moment I have completely ZERO enthusiasm for b-ball, and golf is amusing to look for perhaps 5 minutes while I'm flipping channels.
