Overwatch FPS PC game recruits super heroes to restore order to future earth

Overwatch is a new PC game that was announced at BlizzCon that brings super heroes to the first-person shooter genre. Set in a highly stylized future earth at a technologically advanced era, Overwatch brings a task force together to restore order to a war-torn world.

Harnessing the power of their hero of choice, players will join forces in teams of six and battle each other across a range of futuristic global locations, from the hologram-lit streets of London to a bazaar in the shadows of a high-tech Egyptian pyramid. Every battlefield is iconic and built to highlight each character's unique abilities, and fights can shift from streets to rooftops to open skies within the span of a breath.

Overwatch is said to be fully playable and running on 600 PCs with beta testing to begin 2015 with new heroes and maps.

If you're interested in the beta, you can visit the official Overwatch website.
