Overwatch: Origins Edition

Years after the resolution of the Omnic Crisis by the Overwatch taskforce, accusations of corruption and sedition turned the people against those that had saved them. Suspicion ran rife, heightened by the destruction of the Overwatch headquarters. This event, which took the lives of Overwatch leader Jack Morrison and second-in-command Gabriel Reyes, led to the disbanding of the task force, paving the way for conflict to rise once again. Overwatch may be gone, but the world still needs heroes.

In Overwatch, unique heroes with extraordinary abilities fight across futuristic, yet familiar battlegrounds. Choose between 21 characters, all with different abilities, each with their own game-changing abilities.

Take part in 6v6 objective-based battles on iconic battlefields shifting from the streets to rooftops and even the open skies as you clash against your opponents.

Finding your characters abilities aren’t suited to the battle? Switch hero mid-match and foil your opponent’s tactics.

With a strong emphasis on team play (no deathmatch), every hero’s individual abilities are more effective when unleashed in concert with your teammates and is the key to victory.
