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.

Additional Comments

WARNING: This will be the last report for Overwatch 1. As late Feb or soon March, Blizzard will release Overwatch 2 CBT (or idk) because this has been confirmed.
Consider play the game until Overwatch 2 CBT release.
For Overwatch 2, we would expect it will run same as Overwatch 1. What matters is the anti-cheat and the new engine itself.

Be sure to use X.org instead of Wayland. Also disable some DE Compositor to get rid of input lag when Select Hero or tracking enemies in game.
