Overwatch is a first person shooter developed by blizzard and will be released on the 24th May 2016. This game has already given the public beta keys to test the game for themselves for reviews and work with flaws within the current games design. There is huge roster for this game, giving players lots characters to choose from along with each character fitting into a certain class along with their own unique abilities. The classes and characters are as follows:
The tank classes would focus on being in front taking all the damage and giving all the damage to also help with the bigger threats the field. These characters jobs are to take all the attention and take all the damage because they have the most hit points out of all the character classes in the game which is good for a team.
The support classes would focus more on keeping everyone alive or protecting team mates through spells, skills and shields while fighting of the enemy. Also apart from healing, the support can enhance their own team and/or weaken the enemy team through their unique skills and abilities.
The offensive classes would focus on taking out other members in the other team from completing the objective or winning the game. However these classes focus more on the elimination of enemies. All these characters have high mobility and are known for their ability to deal large amounts of damage, however with these they would have low hit points.

The defencive classes would focus on taking out other members in the other team from completing the objective or winning the game. However these classes focus more on the defending players and objects with skills like shields and turrets. These characters would be good at protecting certain areas and creating choke points in the field.
Having a team with a mixtures of these players can give you a serious advantage in the field has this would mainly be a team based game. The gameplay normally consists of six players each and if everyone choose a character to help each other out then you will have a successful team. With another Beta on its way for the public the game just seems to get more and more in depth with characters, story and gameplay. Hopefully this game will live up to the hype for all the people who still haven’t got into the beta before the official release of this game.
