Overwatch is a team-based, hero shooter where players battle each other to complete specific objectives across 16 different maps. There are currently 26 heroes to choose from, each unique with their own personalities, traits and abilities. Developed by Blizzard, Overwatch is what came out of the failed ‘Project Titan’ and takes inspiration from classic team-based shooters in the past, most notably Team Fortress.
