Overwatch is a team-based first-person shooter game released in 2016, developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment. Some time in the future, Omnics, man-made robots with artificial intelligence, suddenly started attacking people, beginning the Omnic Crisis. To combat this threat, the United Nations formed a task force dubbed Overwatch. While the force was successful and kept the peace for many years, it was eventually disbanded and forbidden due to inner corruption. However, the terrorist group Talon threatens to cause another Omnic Crisis, so Overwatch is formed again, despite being outlawed. The gameplay pits two teams of six players against each other, each player using a unique hero. To win, they must complete objectives, which vary by map.
