Overwatch is an online team-based game generally played as a first-person shooter. The game features several different game modes, principally designed around squad-based combat with two opposing teams of six players each. Travel the world, build a team, and contest objectives in exhilarating 6v6 combat. Players on a team work together to secure and defend control points on a map. Players gain cosmetic rewards that do not affect gameplay, such as character skins and victory poses, as they play the game.
