Overwatch is the first shooter game  Blizzard has ever created. While not many thought the company would release a decent game, it seems the company has proved it can create a new genre of game and still make it as popular as its other games such as World of Warcraft, Starcraft or Hearthstone.

Overwatch is a team-based multiplayer first-person shooter game that was released back in May 2016 for Windows PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4. In this game, there are two teams and each one is composed of six players.

There are 4 types of heroes in this game on offensive, defensive, tank and support. It is good to know that during normal (non-ranked) matches, players are able to pick the same heroes at the same time which means that you can have 6 Genji or 6 Tracer heroes in a single team.

However, this has changed in the ranked system, because Blizzard has decided to allow only a single hero in a team of 6. In other words, if someone has already picked Genji, you can’t pick it too. Unfortunately, we still think that the ranking system is broken in Overwatch and Blizzard will need to come with a complete overhaul of it.

Overwatch Free To Play This Weekend

Are you one of those gamers that are not sure yet if they want to purchase Overwatch? Well, we have some good news for you: Blizzard has announced that Overwatch will be free to play over this entire weekend.

According to the developing company, gamers will be able to play Overwatch on their Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 for free during November 18-21, 2016. We remind you that this is not the first time Blizzard has done this, as back in September 2016 the game was also free for a weekend.
