Overwatch Release Party

Update #4: Open Beta Early Access begins today in the US. Check here to see what time it launches for your region.

Update #3: I'm a little late but here is the newest animated short. Also the early access portion of the Open Beta will begin on May 2nd and the Open Beta for all players is still May 5th through May 9th. The Open Beta will end for everyone on May 9th at 10:00AM PDT. The entire closed beta will be ending on April 25th.

UPDATE #2: Blizzard released the first of their series of animated shorts set in the Overwatch universe. You can watch the first one here: Recall

UPDATE: Overwatch is now set to release May 24th! Open beta starts May 5th and ends May 9th. Those who have preordered get early access and get to play May 3rd and 4th. Those who preordered can also give early access to one friend.

Overwatch is an upcoming multiplayer first-person shooter in development by Blizzard Entertainment. Unveiled at BlizzCon 2014, the game emphasizes cooperative gameplay using a cast of various "heroes", each with their own abilities and roles within a team. The game entered closed beta in North America and Europe on October 27, 2015, with plans to bring the beta to Asia at a later date. The game is scheduled to be released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in the first or second quarter of 2016.

Overwatch features squad-based combat with two opposing teams of six players each. Players choose one of several hero characters, each with their own unique abilities and role classes. The four character roles include: offense characters with high speed and attack but low defense, defense characters meant to form choke points for enemies, support characters that provide buffs and debuffs for their allies and enemies respectively (such as healing or speed alterations), and tank characters that have a large amount of armor and hit points to withstand enemy attacks and draw fire away from teammates. Players can switch between characters in-game following deaths, which is encouraged by the game's overall design.

There are currently 21 heroes to play as available at launch and there will be more added for free in the near future.

Overwatch is set to release May 24th. on or before June 21st
