What is Overwatch?

Overwatch is an objective-based multiplayer first-person shooter video game developed by Blizzard and released on 2016.

What’s the game about?

Overwatch is a team-based game, in which you and your team have to complete an objective and defeat the opponent party. Thus, you will never go far without your teammates, keep that in mind.

There are several “roles” to be covered that are not so different from other competitor team-based games:

Tanks: Are usually the frontline of your team (your anchor) and have high hp (i.e., durability) and a moderate damage capability.

DPS: Are those who should take down enemy players with high burst damage and high mobility, at the cost of little survivability.

Supports: Those tasked with providing help to their team through heals, buffs and other utilities. You can choose which role to fill in from a roaster of more than 28 heroes (at least one should fit your playstyle).

In every Overwatch match you have to complete an objective. Killing the enemy players is necessary but not enough to achieve victory. Game modes range from Payload escort, Capture Points and Hybrid Maps (where you have to do both actions in the same game match) and you can play them in both Quick Play or Competitive Matches (that’s where things get exciting).

E-sport entertainment and streams.

Funny to say, but Overwatch is not only about playing. At higher levels, Overwatch is an acknowledged e-sport and if you wish to learn more about it, why don’t you simply look at some professional e-sport players streams?
