Overwatch is a multiplayer first-person shooter video game developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment.

Team combat

In Overwatch, players are put into two teams of six, with each player selecting one of several characters with unique abilities and skills. These characters are divided into four classes: offense, defense, tank and support. Each class has distinct attributes and plays a different role during combat. Offense characters have high speed and attack power but low defense capabilities. Defence characters are meant to form choke points for enemies, support characters provide buffs and debuffs for their allies and enemies, respectively (such as healing or speed boost/slow). Tank characters have a large amount of armour and hit points to withstand enemy attacks and draw fire away from teammates. To win in a match, a team has to work together to secure and defend control points on a map or escort a payload across the map in a limited amount of time.

The next big esport

Overwatch is poised as the next big esport for having a sufficiently different look and play style from established FPS esports titles, like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Call of Duty, enough variety in maps and characters and strong support from Blizzard to maintain the game for a long time. Speed of gameplay and short match times also make Overwatch enjoyable and easy to follow for viewers. The first international competitive tournament for Overwatch was hosted by Electronic Sports League (ESL) in August 2016. This event, titled Overwatch Atlantic Showdown, featured eight teams competing for a six-figure prize pool.
