Blizzard’s Overwatch is now available in South Africa

Blizzard Entertainment’s futuristic team-based shooter is now available locally on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Overwatch is a 6v6 shooter that takes place on Earth in the near future, where teams of soldiers, scientists, adventurers, and oddities clash for control of iconic locations around the world.

The game features a diverse cast of 21 heroes—each with their own unique arsenal of weapons and abilities—who bend time and defy physics as they work together to complete objectives with their allies.

Teamwork is critical as players swap heroes on the fly and combine their powers to game-changing effect—the action is intense, with a focus on immediacy and fun.

Players can choose between one of three modes:

  • Quick Play mode, which automatically matches players with teammates and opponents of similar skill online.
  • Play Vs. AI mode, where players can test their mettle against computer-controlled opponents
  • Custom Games, which allow players to set special rules for hero switching, damage modifiers, and more.

And there’s more to come in the future: Blizzard plans to patch in new heroes and maps post-launch at no additional cost.
