For 25 years Blizzard Entertainment have been at the forefront in developing groundbreaking Real Time Strategy games such as Starcraft, and turning the MMORPG community on it’s head with the life-consuming World of Warcraft. Now they’ve jumped into the First Person Shooter genre with Overwatch, which is certainly a big step outside of their comfort zone. So the million-pound question is: did they pull it off? For the most part, we’d have to say yes.

During the in-game presentation we went to, Blizzard were keen to point-out that this is very much their interpretation of what an online, team-based shooter SHOULD BE like. That’s the good thing about Blizzard, when they introduce a new game for a genre they haven’t covered yet they make sure to put their stamp on it. Furthermore you’ll find that once they do find that winning formula they’re not  going to do a FIFA/Call of Duty maneuver where they ‘pump out’ title-after-title. Instead they make their games to last (Don’t believe us? WoW was first released in 2004 and till this day 5.5 million players are still online in the world of Azeroth).

We had over an hour to play Overwatch and what we found was a highly enjoyable, easy to pick up game that constantly challenged us. The game will be released on May 24 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, that’s more than enough time to prepare yourself for the five things you need to know about Overwatch.
