Overwatch: Everything you need to know

overwatch

Blizzard joins the FPS genre with their first shooter which is a team based affair. The game launched with 21 heroes covering different roles such as tank, support, healing, and offense.

There are four game modes on offer, split across three types of objective. Escort has players escort a payload across the map; Assault has one team trying to defend a point from the other; Hybrid has a point that needs capturing followed by a payload that needs pushing; and Control has both teams battling it out over one control point in a best-of-three format. Although it’s four game modes, there are only two types of objectives, escorting and capturing.

The game is full priced but there are also Loot Boxes awarded on each level up. These Loot Boxes can also be purchased and only contain cosmetic items. There’s no advantage to be gained from Loot Boxes.
