In case you didn't have the opportunity to engage with Blizzard's team-based multiplayer extravaganza over the course of its open beta weekend, know that Overwatch has personally become my most anticipated game of the year based on over 20 hours of online play. It represents some of Blizzard's finest attributes as developers and I'm hoping it enjoys a warm reception upon its release for XBOX One, PS4 and PC on May 24th.
But one of the great things about Overwatch is how — even though it caters to casual gamers quite well — it gives players plenty of space to perfect their skills as shooter fans. So we thought we could celebrate Overwatch by showing off some truly awesome plays from the open beta weekend.
