Game overview

Become your own kind of hero in Blizzard's critically-acclaimed, team-based shooter

Take part in an ever expanding universe of unforgettable characters, over-the-top weapons and powers and explosive multiplayer combat.   

Bend time, defy physics and unleash a dizzying array of extraordinary abilities in a rapid-fire team-based shooter that has become a cult phenomenon.

Overwatch invites you to choose from a unique variety of heroes -  a time-jumping adventurer, a rocket hammer-wielding warrior or a transcendent robot monk, to name a few - and step into ever-expanding range of arenas to do battle in a unique 6-v-6 rumble.

Whether you're engaging in combat on the front line, providing defensive cover with your energy shield, or supporting your allies by amplifying their damage, every hero's abilities are designed to be effective as part of a team.

Get out there and protect the secrets of the mysterious Temple of Anubis, safely escort an EMP device through King's Row and more – the world of Overwatch is your battlefield.

Know your role

Each hero is built around a specific team role - knowing where you need to be and what you need to do will be crucial to your team's success.


Damage heroes seek out, engage, and obliterate the enemy with wide-ranging tools, abilities and play styles. Fearsome but fragile, these heroes require backup to survive.


Tank heroes soak damage and shatter fortified positions, like closely grouped enemies and narrow chokepoints. If you’re a tank, you lead the charge.


Support heroes empower their allies by healing, shielding, boosting damage, and disabling foes. As a support, you’re the backbone of your team’s survival.
