The FPS MOBA, and an original game from the house of Blizzard in some time, Overwatch finally has a release date.

Overwatch will launch on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on May 24 2016.

Overwatch will also be entering an open beta on May 5 through May 9. With gamers who pre-order the game getting early access to the beta from May3.


Overwatch features squad-based combat with two opposing teams of six players each. Players choose one of several hero characters, each with their own unique abilities and role classes. The four character roles include: offense characters with high speed and attack but low defense, defense characters meant to form choke points for enemies, support characters that provide buffs and debuffs for their allies and enemies respectively (such as healing or speed alterations), and tank characters that have a large amount of armor and hit points to withstand enemy attacks and draw fire away from teammates. Players can switch between characters in-game following deaths, which is encouraged by the game’s overall design. The game’s maps are inspired by real-world locations; the first three maps unveiled (“King’s Row”, “Hanamura”, “Temple of Anubis”) are inspired by London, Japan, and the ruins of Ancient Egypt.
