The future is now. Are you with us?

Clash on the battlefields of tomorrow and choose your hero from a diverse cast of soldiers, scientists, adventurers, and oddities. Bend time, defy physics, and unleash an array of extraordinary powers and weapons. Engage your enemies in iconic locations from around the globe in the ultimate team-based shooter. Take your place in Overwatch. The world needs heroes.

Experience the extraordinary

Speed up and slow down time. Rain destruction from above in an experimental, jet-powered armor suit.  Stalk your prey as a wraith-like assassin that can appear anywhere, anytime. Unleash powers such as dragonstrike, transcendence, graviton surge, and so much more. Every hero has a unique set of devastating and game-changing abilities. 

Play heroes, not classes

Every hero has a unique perspective on the battlefield and a story behind how they arrived there. You are a champion of a bygone age wielding his punishing rocket hammer in the service of honor, a robotic monk committed to healing the rifts between man and machine, a genetically engineered gorilla who also happens to be a brilliant scientist, and many, many more.

Fight for the future…together

Teamwork is imperative for survival as you enter the fight with friends and comrades. Careful coordination will prove the difference between victory and defeat as your team combines the formidable powers at your disposal to devastating effect.

Shift your perspective

Just when it seems like your team is destined to go down in defeat, switch heroes on the fly and change the course of the battle. But don’t forget that your opponents can do the same. Master the game within the game as both teams shift strategies and heroes in a constant dance to gain the upper hand.

The world is your battlefield

Protect the secrets of the mysterious Temple of Anubis in Egypt, safely escort an EMP device through King’s Row in London, and do battle at other key locations around the planet. Every map has its own distinct feel with unique gameplay and team-based objectives.

Unlock the Widowmaker Noire skin

Pre-purchase Overwatch and receive the special Noire skin for the deadly and ruthless Widowmaker. Clad in black and red, she stalks her prey like a venomous spider.

Maybe the first $60, online-only game that gets it right Go get a large bowl out of the pantry. Add a few parts of the class structure of Team Fortress 1/2. Add a few more parts of MOBA-esque, team-based PvP. Then add first-person view. Lastly, stir in the remains of Blizzard’s mysterious yet failed MMO project, Titan, and you get Overwatch.On the surface, Blizzard’s newest IP looks like a cash grab amidst the latest trend of making a first-person PvP-only game at the cost of $60, a la Titanfall, Evolve, etc. But Overwatch goes deeper. I implore you to hop on Google, search for Gamespot’s “The Story of Overwatch” series and specifically watch the part two video, “Return of the 90s shooter”. If you ever played Doom, Quake 2 or any of the mods that ultimately gave birth to arena-style shooters like Team Fortress Classic, you played in the same worlds that Overwatch’s developers absolutely loved to play in back in the 90s, worlds full of mechanics and a different style of teamplay not…

It’s time to kick buttocks and chew bubblegum I love shooters where you’re not some green army dude with generic assault rifle #21 running alongside generic army dude with generic assault rifle #45 dudebroing and high fiving as you shoot at generic army dudes with assault rifles. Occasionally praying to the gods of space time curvature as you brett favre grenades across the map.Overwatch like Team Fortress 2 before it attempts to reinvent first person pew-pewing with things like gameplay variety, character design and fun. You have John Marston with a pistol, the Grim Reaper with two pistols, some over sexualized girl characters designed by pronhub, some awesome robots and a jet grind radio guy who heals and throws down phat beats. There’s also Soldier 76 if you accidentally bought the game thinking it was Infinite Warfare. There’s also a guy sitting cross legged floating around throwing poke balls if you’re into that kind of thing.Like TF2 you’ll be murdered repeatedly by snipers, forced to watch the…
