    It's and FPS with semi-moba type skills basically.
    Here's a video on the characters, skills and other things: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zsih8_-nvqY

    I like it and really want to play it but sadly don't have enough RAM or CPU to have to work effectively.

    Easily the best multiplayer FPS I've played in a long time, and the most fun I've had in any game in the last several years. It's actually too much fun for me right now, because each time they've opened the game up to me for testing I've had impending exams. Somehow Blizzard always does this to me (looking at you, Diablo 3 beta).

    Basically, it's a very fast paced PVP, objective-based team FPS. There are 21 heroes/characters at this time of writing, and each character has a completely different set of abilities and weapons. Game was developed by Blizzard entertainment, the guys behind Warcraft, Starcraft, Diablo, World of Warcraft, Hearthstone, and Heroes of the Storm; basically, they make really good games.

    Generally, each character has only one weapon, with two firing modes, a movement based ability, a special low cool-down ability, and an ultimate ability, that you charge up in the match by doing what your character is supposed to do (heal, deal damage, ect). There are four hero roles; assault (faster squishy agressive damage dealers), defense (long range squishy damage dealers and turrets), tank (big tough bullet sponges), and support (healers, and Symettra...) The hero variety is actually incredible, and over half of all the heroes have completely unique movement systems, from grappling hooks, to blinks, to rocket jumps, flying, dashes, ect. Within each role their is a lot of variation on what each character does to fulfill that role, like one tank is pretty standard, with a big shield that he holds in front of him, with tow other "tanks" that actually serve best to disrupt enemy lines from the rear, and don't really take direct fire themselves.

    Game's are always 6v6, current modes are basically king of the hill, escort, capture the point(s), and hybrid escort-capture the point. Besides king of the hill, all modes are split between Attack and Defense, and your teams switch roles after a round for best 2/3. 12 maps in total.

    There's a lot that can be done in this game, and a lot of incredibly awesome moments to be had. If you want to know more I suggest you start with the following:

    Gameplay Trailer 1

    Gameplay Trailer 2

    And amazingly awesome cinematic trailer

    Currently out on open beta until May 10th 10am PDT (extended from the May 9th date you might see posted online). Highly recommend everyone that likes FPS, or more specifically TF2 and other class based FPS give this one a go.

    I was dismissive of this game at first because it seemed a tad "Kool 4 Kidz," and because I mistakenly thought it was more MOBA than it actually is, but then I pulled the stick out of my ass and tried the current beta and I fell in love. Best game indeed. Only game I've played with a scientist moon gorilla AND a floating robot monk at the same time. GOTY material alone right there.

    I'm a bit torn because the game does run on my PC, but of course it runs better on my Xbox with better graffix... But I wanna play with a mouse, and as of right now the Xbox version seems to be more expensive (because the Xbox store only has the Origins edition.) So basically I need a better PC, I guess.

    Favorite heroes are Zenyatta, Winston, and Roadhog, who are all absolute animals. Reinhardt and 76 are awesome too, and I really like Genji but I suck with him, which is pretty typical I guess lol.

    Before I played Overwatch I was kinda burnt out on multuplayer FPS, but this game is really something special. I'm going to be playing it for a long damn time.

    Pretending I wasn't immediately hyped up for this game because it was made by Blizzard, the part in the cinematic where they introduced Winston almost made my jaw drop. He's basically Caesar/Hank McCoy smashed together on the moon, and it's wonderful.

    Honestly, after playing the weekly brawl that forces you into random hero spawns, I don't think there really are any characters in this game I don't like playing, except for Symettra and Torbjorn (hate babysitting turrets), and Zarya, but only because all the other tanks seem to be just so incredibly fun that she seems boring by proximity.

    And from what I've seen/heard, mouse + keyboard makes for a much faster paced game, and certain heroes like Genji can be impossible to play well at all on console.

    I'm going to be playing it for a long damn time.
    Gimmie that sweet sweet battletag, you spikey ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.

    Missing out on a lot, it's better optimized than ark for sure lol. Also it's in beta so optimizations are being added. Even when the game was alpha, it was easily addicting and bat-♥♥♥♥ fun.

    It was extremely popular just by the first trailer they made for it, already catching up with LoL AND it has a much better playerbase.

    My PC couldn't run Battleborn, but I'm sure as hell glad I could run this game (and on high too!). Thank you for optimization, Blizzard! As a fan of TF2, I've been looking forward to it ever since its first trailer. The cast is so diverse and there are a ton of play styles that make most heroes feel unique. It's fantastic.

    Favorite heroes to play as are Winston, Reinhardt, Genji, and Mercy.

    For anyone wagi thinks bastion is OP, just use genji's bullet deflecting ability and point towards him. All the bullets will come bsck at him and if he isnt dead use the shurikens or LShift ability.

    1640 hours in TF2, so I was quick to join the band wagon on this game.

    Really do enjoy how much fun it is, ESPECIALLY with friends. What I really like about this game is how important and dependable someone on the team is. The 6 v 6 fights (While fully possible in TF2, though not as "defined") really make for some intense team play and it's great fun. Plus, with the ultimate abilities, this game could make anyone feel super badass at anyone moment. (ie. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfile.../?id=680979412 )

    On the topic of characters though,

    Bastion is pretty easy to counter with a bunch of things. Reaper flanking him can kill him in a few seconds, as mentioned Genji can kill him as quick as he would kill you, Junkrat doesn't really need to be in his line of sight to kill him, etc. The main character I've been having a really pain in the ass trying to counter is Mei. The only thing that "works" is McCree flashbanging her and quickly trying to kill her before she can freeze you.

    Oh and, not sure if anyone has seen this on the Overwatch Reddit but this is pretty neat:
