Overwatch is an online team first-person shooter. This game was made by Blizzard Entertainment and was released for PC, Xbox One, PS4(PlayStation 4).Currently, there are 27 heroes in the game, and the developers are planning to release more in future updates. This game has different classes of heroes that are Offense, Defense, Tank, and Support. Offense heroes are supposed to deal damage and kill enemies. Defense heroes are supposed to defend against enemy heroes from getting to the points. Tank heroes are supposed to soak up and block damage to defend the heroes with less health. Support heroes are supposed to heal and buff people on their team while stopping the enemies from healing, they are not big damage dealers. The current heroes are Doomfist, Genji, McCree, Pharah, Reaper, Soldier: 76, Sombra, Tracer, Bastion, Hanzo, Junkrat, Mei, Torbjörn, Widowmaker, D.va, Orisa, Reinhardt, Roadhog, Winston, Zarya, Ana, Brigitte, Lúcio, Mercy, Moira, Symmetra, and Zenyatta. Each character has their own abilities, ultimate, and play style. This game is team-based where you try and defeat the people on the other team. There are currently 8 modes in the game. First, there is Arena where you try to defeat all enemies in 1v1 or 3v3. Then there is Assault, where the attackers try and capture some points while the defenders try to hold them off. The next game mode is Escort where the attackers try and escort a payload by standing near it to the end and the defenders try to hold them off until time runs out. Then there is Assault/Escort where the attackers capture a point and then escort a payload that appears after the point has been captured while the defenders hold them off. Then there is Capture the Flag where there are 2 teams that try and stop each other from getting their flag, whichever team has the most flags wins. The next mode is Control where 2 teams fight for control of one point, whoever has the point long enough to reach 100% wins. Then there is Deathmatch where it is a free-for-all to see who can get the most kills. Then there is Team Deathmatch where it is like Deathmatch but whichever team gets the most kills wins, not an individual. The maps in the game are Château Guillard, Dorado, Eichenwalde, Hanamura, Hollywood, Horizon Lunar Colony, Ilios, King’s Row, Lijiang Tower, Nepal, Numbani, Oasis, Route: 66, Temple of Anubis, Volskaya Industries, and Watchpoint: Gibraltar. There are also many more temporary maps and maps that are only available in one game mode. In the game, you can buy or win loot boxes in which you can get skins, emotes, victory poses, voice lines, sprays, highlight intros, or credits, there are 4 items in each loot box. Overwatch is even part of eSports, where there are competitive leagues where the best players in the world compete against each other. I think Overwatch is a great game and if you tried it you would probably think so too, and although this game is a little old it is still good and there are still updates coming out.
