"Overwatch" is a team-based first person shooter game that has become one of the widely accepted multiplayer shooters game online. Developed by Blizzard, the game consist of a mixture of bubbly and colorful characters followed by both the ordinary and professionals in online sports.

According to PCAdvisor, "Overwatch" resembles that of its predecessor, the PC game classic named "Team Fortress 2". In this game, players will get acquainted with more than 20 characters, with different skills and with distinct goals but to play and win. Hence, it is important that gamers have to establish team work.

Adding up to its features, "Overwatch" has multiple character that a game player can control such as the cowboy, ninja, gorilla or jump to the robot or the cockney. In a report by Gamerant, the game players will have to assume different roles such becoming the healers, assassins, tanks or even served as support.

However, "Overwatch" is different from other team-based FPS because it does not have a campaign mode. Instead, the players will have to engage in the game as they try to beat their opponents by working through rock, paper, scissors and form the best team of super powers to beat their opponents.

"Overwatch" is now available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. However, one limiting factor that hinders the possible cross-play on different consoles is the speed of the mouse and keyboard. In-progress is the upgrading of the game to include modifications along this line. For more update on the game, stay tuned to Gamenguide.
