HOW TO PLAY OVERWATCH?

Blizzard first unveiled Overwatch at BlizzCon 2014. In late 2015 through the beginning of the following year, a beta was available. Overwatch was first released on May 24, 2016 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. It made its way to Nintendo Switch in October 2019. It is now, of course, also available on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. Overwatch 2 will release on October 4, 2022.

WHEN DID OVERWATCH COME OUT?

Overwatch didn’t start out as a crossplay functional game, but now it’s one of the best crossplay games around. It did, however, eventually become crossplay across all platforms in June 2021. There is one small caveat to that, though. It’s not crossplay in its competitive mode. This is most likely because PC players have an advantage when playing the game with a mouse and keyboard.

IS OVERWATCH CROSSPLAY?

While there are a number of incredible free-to-play-games, Overwatch is not free. You must purchase the game. When Overwatch 2 releases on October 4, 2022, the game will go free-to-play, allowing for even more people to enjoy the team-based shooter. There are also plans for a number of PVE experiences in Overwatch 2 down the line.
