Soldiers. Scientists. Adventurers. Oddities.
In a time of global crisis, an international task force of heroes banded together to restore peace to a war-torn world: OVERWATCH.
Overwatch ended the crisis, and helped maintain peace in the decades that followed, inspiring an era of exploration, innovation, and discovery. But, after many years, Overwatch’s influence waned, and it was eventually disbanded.
Now, conflict is rising across the world again, and the call has gone out to heroes old and new. Are you with us?
The heroes of Overwatch: Origins Edition PlayStation 4 are varied and unique, each with several extraordinary abilities that set them apart both from their foes and their comrades. Play as Tracer, the teleporting adventurer capable of warping around the battlefield; Reinhardt, an armoured knight who clambers around, wielding a huge hammer; Winston, a gorilla bursting with energy who's as smart as he is strong; Soldier 76, a ruthless agent skilled in the ways of war; McCree, the revolver-slinging cowboy sharpshooter; Reaper, the deadly assassin who can move around like a ghost; and many, many more.
Each Overwatch hero has a unique set of skills, from the weapons they wield to the ways they can interact with other players. Play as an Offence character and you'll be taking the battle straight to the enemy with your destructive weaponry; play in Defence and you'll set up protective outposts to keep the opposing forces at bay; as a Support character you'll be responsible for healing your teammates to let them stay in the fight for longer; and as a Tank it's your job to deal with the damage while protecting your allies and disrupting the other team's movements.
In Overwatch: Origins Edition PlayStation 4, team play is essential for victory. Different battle scenarios call for different character skills, and it's up to you to provide them throughout each frantic and exciting online battle. Rain down destruction upon your enemies or use your time-travel abilities to outflank them unnoticed; use the game's colourful maps to your advantage by setting up defensive positions to force your opponents into retreats, or outwit and outshoot them at every turn. Now's your time to prove your worth, recruit!
