Overwatch is the name of an international task force of heroes that restored peace in a world devastated by the war decades long ago. Their influence has dissapeared over the years and now the world is in conflict again, old and new heroes answer to the call to fight and prove their worth once more.
But Overwatch is also the competitive FPS developed by Blizzard which features fights between teams of 6 players.
Multiplayer only, you will have to pick a hero among around 20 and make sure your team is well-rounded in order to win.
There are several archetypes of heroes: tanks, supports, defensive and offensive heroes, who each have a few specific skills to use. You obviously want to make sure your team has enough offensive or defensive heroes to have the best chance to win the game. Team setups should vary depending on the game mode such as Payload, where you have to escort a vehicle up to a certain delivery point before time runs out, and Point Capture, in which you need to either attack and capture points on the map, or defend them, depending on which team you are.
Although those 2 are the only game modes so far, 2 more game modes will be available at launch. Ranked games are planned as well, probably for solo and team rankings, but yet again no official word about it.
After several beta phases, Overwatch is scheduled to launch on May 24th 2016 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, though there will be no cross-platform. 3 different editions will be available: digital (PC only), the « Origins » edition featuring a few goodies, and the collector edition.
