Team-based multiplayer shooter
Overwatch is a team-based shooter where heroes do battle in a world of conflict. It features a wide array of unique heroes, ranging from a time-jumping adventurer, to an armored, rocket-hammer-wielding warrior, to a transcendent robot monk. Every hero plays differently, and mastering their abilities is the key to unlocking their potential. No two heroes are the same.
