What is Overwatch?

Overwatch is a cooperative multiplayer FPS/RTS hybrid powered by the Source engine and based on the Half-Life 2 universe. It pits a team of rebels playing cooperatively in first-person (the Resistance) against one player who assumes the role of commander to the Combine forces (the Overwatch), controlling units and the environment around them from a bird's-eye view.

Update Using the Updater Utility

Already have Overwatch installed? You can use the included Updater Utility to update to the latest version with only the click of a button! Click here for more information and for instructions.

Note: The Updater doesn't currently display a progress bar when downloading files. If you don't see anything happening, don't worry! It's downloading the package, which could take a bit of time depending on the speed of your Internet connection. Just let it go, grab a cookie, and it'll be done before you know it!

Game Servers

Trinity Gaming

Looking for servers? A list of official Overwatch servers is available here.

Note: Can't see any servers in the in-game server browser? Make sure the Show Map List option is not selected (you can find it at the bottom-left corner of the server window).

Time for Fun!

Overwatch developers will be scheduling events on our Steam group every now and then, so if you would like to play against them, be sure to keep an eye on that calendar!

We look forward to playing with you all. Enjoy!

Oh, and canals has to be the most difficult map so far.

It definitely is a challenge, but with a decent amount of teamwork, it's not impossible to win!

The auto updater does not work for me, so until this mod becomes Steam official, I cannot play it :(

You don't _need_ the Updater to play, just grab the latest installer or ZIP file from the Downloads section:

You can also send us the following files from your Overwatch folder by email (support -at- which will help us track down and fix any issues with the Updater:

There are people playing every day. If you find an empty server, just join it, people tend to follow.
