Overwatch is set here on Earth – but it’s rich, detailed, dynamic, and highly stylized – it’s also set in the future. It features loads of futuristic iconic locations where battle ensues, from a high-tech pyramid in Egypt, to good not-so-old London Town.
This is a super-charged first person shooter that sees you getting together in a team of six to do battle with other teams around the world. It’s classed as “pick-up-and-play”, so it’s super easy to learn – but only those with real skill will be able to master the game – so there’s plenty of challenges for players of all levels. It’s fast-paced, with plenty of action.
There’s a real mix of Heros with an array of abilities, specialties, and powers – so there’s literally a Hero for everyone. Choose from Scientists, Adventurers, Soldiers, and Oddities.
