Y'know, the world could always use more heroes!

I bloody love Overwatch on the PC. It'll play on low settings on a potato, but looks gorgeous on mid-to-high-end gear.

Minimal toxicity, great community, huge volume of content added free since launch. None of the pay-to-win crap either. You buy the game, you get all the characters, game modes, and abilities.

Cosmetics are in loot boxes that you can buy, or earn. And they're given out like candy, pretty much everything you do will earn you a loot box or two in an evening. There's no trading., no external marketplace, nothing. Lootboxes done right. Anything you don't get randomly in a loot box can be purchased using the in-game currency.

Beautiful character design and mechanics, an ever-shifting meta (balance between characters), a great blend of individual plays and teamwork.

It's got an edge-of-the-seat pro eSports league (Overwatch League) and semi-pro league (Overwatch Contenders).

I've been hooked on OWL since the beginning, London Spitfire (#AcesHigh) are my team but I've got a love for NYXL because of Saebyeolbe and Pine. Spitfire is a South Korean roster, and we won the opening stage.

The non-SK teams have upped there game and it's a lot more exciting at the top, although NYXL (another SK roster) are currently in the lead and have won stages two and three. It sure makes the Premier League look boring.

I've just started watching Contenders after getting hooked on British Hurricane (#FangsOut) vs Team Gigantti. We're currently the top EU team, and Atlantic Champions currently, having just beaten the US top team Fusion University.

It's possible that I now watch more OW than I play, and I love playing Overwatch.

I bought OW at launch for full price, and I couldn't be happier with it. Excellent value for money. Crazy value at the sale they put on at Free Weekends. Pick it up, play it, and fall in love with it.

Party on the objective; who’s in?!

Plenty of reasons really. It's just infuriating to play.

The fun has been completely removed from it.
So boring. So few game modes. Can't believe it's so popular
This is the only game I've been playing on my Xbox for the past 6 months. I think it's great (if it matters, my age is 28)
I hear a lot of people saying this so going downhill but I still find myself playing this daily on my pc
Is it free to download on steam between those dates?
They may as well make it free to play at this point.

Well since they put in a character that can take all your abilities away that you require to play and enjoy the game... also brigitte now with the low cool down on the shield charge.
It's a shame I used to really enjoy it but there's so little content and the devs are still playing around with characters. It also doesn't help when the community is getting increasingly toxic.

Does this still require PSN plus to play online?
Does anyone actually play this anymore?

Surely everyone is on Pubg or Fortnite if they prefer the rubbish graphics and childish gameplay?
Don't say one bad word or you will be banned, avoid this game like the rain.
It seems like I’m the minority cos I still really enjoy this game on pc
shame that you need Xbox Gold subscription to play this, on Playstation its totally free.

I really enjoy this game on pc. Can play for hours and not get bored, mainly due to variety of heroes and abilities.
