In a time of global crisis, an international task force of heroes banded together to restore peace to a war-torn world. This organization, known as Overwatch, ended the crisis and helped maintain peace for a generation, inspiring an era of exploration, innovation, and discovery.
After many years, Overwatch's influence waned and it was eventually disbanded. Now in the wake of its dismantling, conflict is rising once again. Overwatch may be gone... but the world still needs heroes.
Game objective 🎯
In Overwatch, you control one of several heroes in competitive 6-person team shooting matches. Battle over objectives, take down the other team, and achieve victory.
Overwatch currently has 29 heroes available. Each and every one of them falls into a hero role: tank, damage or support.
Apart from being totally rich and different, each set of maps has different objectives.
Attackers fight to capture a series of objectives; defenders hold them off until time runs out.
Attackers escort a payload to a delivery point; defenders stop them before time elapses.
Attackers first capture a payload, then escort it to its destination; defenders attempt to hold them back.
Two teams fight to hold a single objective at a time; the first team to win two rounds wins the match.
Two teams of six players compete to capture the enemy team’s flag while defending their own.
Players race to score more kills than their opponents in an 8-player free-for-all match.
Two teams race to score more kills than their opponents in a 4v4 match.
Each team strives to eliminate all opponents in 1v1, 3v3, and 6v6 scenarios.
