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 aspects are currently working
What does not
Vanilla Wine performance is lacking without DXVK

What was not tested
All aspects of the game were tested.
Installation of DXVK is a must for performance. Once this has been installed (and cache built), the game runs as expected with no issues.
