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.
All games modes seem to work
Browsing through the menu
What does not
Very low performance in normal game modes, practice range works well though (60-70 fps).

I set the Windows version after I installed Battle.net though...
What was not tested
Competitive Game mode...
Opening Loot boxes
I enabled CSMT, but VAAPI didn't make as much of a difference
