Overwatch is a first-person shooter team-based multiplayer video game published and developed by Blizzard Entertainment. This was first released to the public for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Windows in May 2016. This is the fourth leading franchise of Blizzard that was released after the cancellation of the ambitious role-playing multiplayer online video game Titan in 2014. Some of the Titan team thought of Overwatch’s concept by basing it on the growing fame of multiplayer online battle arenas and the success of first-person shooter team-based games like Team Fortress 2.
The game assigns players in a teams made up of six members where every player can choose one of the many already-defined hero characters with distinct abilities, attributes and movements. The heroes will then have to split into four classes, which are Support, Tank, Defense and Offense. The players on every team has to escort a payload throughout the map in limited time and work together to defend and secure control points on a given map.
