How is there no thread for Overwatch yet?! This game is fucking amazing.
I honestly think Overwatch will end up being one of the best games of all time. There are so many different dynamics to it and so much strategy involved. It's insane. I bet most Siege players would love it!
Blizzard is now one of my favorite gaming companies because of this game. I didn't know a game could be as polished as this... and it's still in beta!
I haven't had this much fun since I was a kid playing Unreal. I've been playing with a bunch of other UT players and they all feel the same way. It's so refreshing. UT players are naturally dominating this game right too lol. It's funny. I'm pretty sure we've won like... the last 30+ matches in a row.
It's in open beta until the 9th, and then the official release is 2 weeks later. You can download it here: https://playoverwatch.com/en-us/
If you're concerned about performance, don't be. Blizzard has done an incredible job in this area (all around really). What's so awesome about this game is that even though it helps to have a high framerate + good monitor, you can still completely own people since it's all very strategic once you learn the maps and the strengths and weakness of each character. So even if you can only run it at like 60 fps with everything on low, it's still tons of fun. Plus, the mouse input is really, really good. Going from UT4 (and even UT99) to Overwatch is like night and day in terms of mouse input.

Also, there are some settings that aren't enabled by default for some reason. Namely the kill feed (really useful to know who is dying) and I prefer to disable to kill cam so I can call out things to teammates instead when I die. And you can actually setup controls/configs specific to each character, and some characters have some special settings that should also probably be enabled by default - e.g., Soldier:76 and Zarya have a setting that will show teammates' health status since they have a secondary ability to heal teammates, and I think it's best to change Widowmaker's sniper zoom sensitivity to match normal sens.
