Synopsis


Overwatch™ is a team-based shooter where heroes do battle in a world of conflict.
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.

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.

    My favorite game ever

    I have more hours logged on Overwatch than any other game. I've had this game for over a year now, but recently purchased it for a friend and he loves it too! The different heroes (characters) all have interesting origins and personalities. The artwork for the heroes and maps are extremely detailed and beautiful. There are regular FREE events and updates with new content. It's also a good FPS game for teens because it isn't bloody or graphic at all. The only issue is that the game is played online and there is a possibility of toxic players (mean players that have inappropriate behavior). However XBOX has parental settings that prevent these toxic players from interacting with your kids. So 10/10 would recommend this game to players of any age.

    I held out till May 2018 to try overwatch cause of the amount of hype around the game. Now me and a few friends play on a regular basis. the graphics are very polished. the Game play is thought out and addicting. There are 27 characters in the game divided into four groups tank healer Defender and attacker. Each character has its own play style and abilities. There are tons of different game modes that constantly change the goal of the game and there is always events going on. A definitely must have for a well-rounded polished multiplayer.

    a pleasantly surprising new entry into the FPS category, Overwatch caught me off guard with its innovative gameplay style. Focusing solely on PvP and team oriented gameplay, Overwatch challenges players to adapt to different circumstances and scenarios by offering a variety of characters with their own unique style of play. The originality takes precedence with its sleek controls and crisp presentation and an abundance of character options. Overwatch will keep bringing you back in for more and more with every match played.

    Fast-paced shooter - like the good ol' days

    I started out with Doom, Quake and Unreal when they first came out but really cut my teeth on Quake 3 Arena when multiplayer really took off. Years have passed and I don't get the opportunity to play as much anymore. Fortnite has set the bar for online play but the one-and-done format in the Battle Royale frustrates me. I much prefer the fast-paced, spawn-often style of play which Overwatch leans towards. Blizzard makes solid games and Overwatch is a great addition!

    One of the best games in years

    Don't be discouraged that this game lacks a campaign or single player mode. This game is meant to be played online and preferably with friends. One of the best tactical, team-based shooters in years. I highly recommend it if you are getting bored of the run and gun style player from the usual First Person Shooters. Here's the best part, this game has so many different characters and play styles that anyone could find a character that caters to them. A must buy for shooter fans.

    Fun Multiplayer Game

    If you’re looking for something to play online that adds in the added bonus of randomization of game progress rewards, you won’t be disappointed with this. It’s got a wide variety of characters for all different types of players and play-styles, so you should be able to find something you like. I should note, however, that this game is MULTIPLAYER ONLY. Don’t buy this if you don’t have xbox love to be able to play online.

    If you're the type of player that skips all the cinematic cuts this game is just for you! It's an fps that focuses on team objectives with subtle story telling told through character interactions (Or watch the youtube Short films, whatever floats you boat). Completely ignore the lore of Overwatch as you build teams with your enemies! Competitive mode for try hards and Arcade Mode for gamers out to sabotage their friends. Seriously though it's way fun so friggin buy it.
