All about the Overwatch Game

Features

Here are the features of the Overwatch Game:

1) Gameplay

  • The gameplay of the Overwatch game is one-of-a-kind and impressive as it combines the strategy aspects of tactical shooter games and the special abilities of MOBA video games beautifully. Since this game is a team-based game, it involves two six-player teams who fight against each other to control an objective. If a team manages to control an objective, it can progress in the game to win. The other team’s “objective” is to snatch the objective from them.

2) Heroes

  • There are three broad categories into which the heroes of a team are divided. They are tanks, supports, and damage dealers. There are two heroes belonging to each category in a team. There is also an option of respawning eliminated heroes in Overwatch. Each of the heroes possesses a one-of-a-kind primary weapon, a set of normal abilities, and an Ultimate ability that develops over the course of the game. Some of the challenging yet extremely rewarding heroes are Lucio, Genji, and Wrecking Ball. For new players, all-rounders like Soldier: 76 and Junkrat (damage dealer) are recommended. If you are a newcomer looking for a support hero, go for Mercy. She has flying and healing abilities along with damage-inflicting abilities.

3) Game Modes and Maps

  • Overwatch has as many as four game modes. They are Control, Assault, Escort, and Hybrid. These 4 game modes contain all the 21 standard maps. The control mode revolves around having control over certain points on the map in a sequential way. The assault mode involves attacking by one team and defending by the other. The escort mode revolves around escorting a payload from one point to another on a map. The hybrid mode combines elements of assault and escort modes.
