The critically acclaimed and extremely popular hero shooter, Overwatch, was announced for Switch.
This version will feature some small changes, such as motion controls, to make the Switch version stand out. For Switch owners wanting to play the game on-the-go, definitely look forward to this title next month.
Here’s an overview of the console version:
THE FUTURE IS NOW. ARE YOU WITH US?
Clash on the battlefields of tomorrow and choose your hero from a diverse cast of soldiers, scientists, adventurers, and oddities. Bend time, defy physics, and unleash an array of extraordinary powers and weapons. Engage your enemies in iconic locations from around the globe in the ultimate team-based shooter. Take your place in Overwatch. The world needs heroes.
EXPERIENCE THE EXTRAORDINARY
Speed up and slow down time. Rain destruction from above in an experimental, jet-powered armor suit. Stalk your prey as a wraith-like assassin that can appear anywhere, anytime. Unleash powers such as dragonstrike, transcendence, graviton surge, and so much more. Every hero has a unique set of devastating and game-changing abilities.
PLAY HEROES, NOT CLASSES
Every hero has a unique perspective on the battlefield and a story behind how they arrived there. You are a champion of a bygone age wielding his punishing rocket hammer in the service of honor, a robotic monk committed to healing the rifts between man and machine, a genetically engineered gorilla who also happens to be a brilliant scientist, and many, many more.
FIGHT FOR THE FUTURE…TOGETHER
Teamwork is imperative for survival as you enter the fight with friends and comrades. Careful coordination will prove the difference between victory and defeat as your team combines the formidable powers at your disposal to devastating effect.
