Targeted to gamers between the ages of eight and twelve, this full-color, unofficial, ninety-six-page strategy guide will cover the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC editions of Blizzard Entertainment's mega-popular game Overwatch: Game of the Year Edition. Each section of the book will feature detailed, yet easy-to-understand tips and strategies, along with screenshots that will help readers quickly master the game when experiencing the Competitive Play (multiplayer) mode.
Overwatch Hacks will offer details about each of the game's 26 core heroes, and describe each hero's unique strengths, weaknesses, abilities, and ultimate abilities. Since Overwatch is all about multi-player team play, an emphasis on what each hero's abilities are best suited for—related to offense, defense, tank, or support—will be covered, as will how a player should adapt their overall gameplay strategy based on which hero they choose to control, and what role they'll be playing as a member of their team. This game is very much about team collaboration, communication, and coordination, and the tips and strategies outlined in this book will focus heavily on these elements of the game.
Readers will also discover what they need to know about the maps and locations where battles occur, and learn how to adapt their strategy based on their location within the game in order to complete location-specific objectives. Finally, this guide will offer tips for best utilizing customization options and loot. Whether a gamer is playing with AI controlled team members, random online players, or their best friends, the reader will go into each battle and adventure with the knowledge and strategies needed to achieve victory.
As a team-based shooter set in the near future, Overwatch was one of the fastest games in history to attract more than 30 million active players. It continues to win awards and be among the most popular multiplayer games available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC platforms.
