Overwatch



Overwatch is a multiplayer first-person shooter video game developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment. Unveiled at BlizzCon 2014, the game emphasizes cooperative gameplay using a cast of various "heroes", each with their own abilities and roles within a team. The E-sports scene developing around the game over the years has gained tremendous popularity with the finals even being broadcasted on ESPN, DIsney and other mainstream platforms.

Selected Test Results

What works

No difference noticeable in-game. I tested around 10 quick matches, and 1 arcade game. The menus all work as on Windows.

What does not

Opening the gifts menu put a dark filter over everything, which went away when I pressed 'Esc'

The game runs very poorly compared to Windows, 200 fps on Windows vs 30-40 fps on Linux.

Workarounds

DXVK solved the lag problem, but there were still many major lag spikes, sometimes freezing the game for two seconds or more.

Using the tweaks provided by Lutris, the performance increased to be almost as good as Windows, and the lag spikes became very rare. I would definitely recommend using Lutris for Overwatch. The gifts menu was not fixed.

What was not tested

Social features. Controller support. Competitive.

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU: Nvidia
