Overwatch Features

Whenever Blizzard Entertainment takes on game development, fans are thrilled with anticipation. These guys just can’t make bad games. That’s what happened this time as well. Before talking about Overwatch, we should mention that this multiplayer shooter was originally conceived with a focus on esports. Blizzard Entertainment decided to revolutionize the world of esports competitions and, in 2016, released not just a shooter but a cocktail mixed from different genres. Visually, the game looks like a classic first-person team shooter. However, it has a lot of features that came from the MOBA genre. But first things first.

The plot of the game takes us to the world of the future, which has gone through military conflicts and other major troubles. The game itself is named after an elite squad of fighters. Overwatch is played by 2 teams, each with 6 players. Players are free to choose their own heroes to play as. Just like in MOBA, each character has a set of unique qualities, abilities, as well as a special super move. Depending on what task the team is currently facing, players can adapt to it by changing characters. For example, to protect and repel enemy attacks, you can choose a tank hero who can absorb damage and cover for teammates. In those cases where it is necessary to take a decisive attack in the shortest possible time, it is possible to choose mobile characters that may cause serious damage. The emphasis is on teamwork, as even the best Overwatch players won’t be able to face the enemy alone.
