Overwatch: Original Soundtrack

It's finally here! After a whopping 555 day wait since our last release, version 1.5.0 is ready for the masses!

→ What is Overwatch?

Overwatch is a cooperative asymmetric multiplayer Real-Time Strategy Shooter (FPS/RTS hybrid) powered by the Source engine and set in the Half-Life² 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.

→ What's NEW in 1.5.0?

With 515 changes made to the code, level and game files, 1.5.0 packs quite a few surprises! Check out all the juicy details and six in-game screenshots in the previous news post, or skip right to the action-packed trailer below! (Changelog)

→ Grab the Game!

Already have Overwatch installed? You can use the included Game Updating Utility to update to the latest version with only the click of a button (click here for instructions). On the other hand, if you're new to Overwatch, hello! Just grab the installer right here and you'll be up and running in no time.

→ Listen to the Original Soundtrack!

If you love listening to the high-intensity in-game music that plays while you dominate Combine forces or pound on rebel fighters, you definitely need to get your hands on Overwatch's 68 minute-long OST! All 18 tracks are currently available on CD Baby and are coming soon to iTunes, Spotify and many other stores and music streaming sites.

Want a small taste? Then listen to the two preview tracks included in the last news post!

Overwatch: Citadel Core

→ What's Next?

While this will likely be the last major update we release for the mod, the Overwatch saga is far from over. Version 1.5.5 is already being put together (and is targeted for release within a few months of 1.5.0), and aside from tweaks and minor improvements, it'll feature a fourth new level created by a member of our community!

And let's not forget Intruder Alert! which packs the same popular and fun gameplay found in Overwatch. We have a tall stack of plans for IA! (and are working hard to get that first release out), so be sure to follow our progress on its awesome-looking IndieDB profile.

→ Time for Fun!

Join us on one of our official Overwatch servers (listed here) and get ready to duck when you hear that mighty Strider roar!

We'll be scheduling playtime events on our Steam Group every now and then, so be sure to keep an eye on that calendar. We look forward to playing with you all!

Enjoy the release!

I just tested this mod and I must say I am really impressed. I hope you are still working on the mod, if yes I have an idea and a question.

what about a forest themed map, a litle bit like ep 2.

will you add new ennemie to fight? I really like the episode 2 hunter personally.

thanks for this awsome mod

Glad you're enjoying it! We are still working on it alongside IA! ( ); expect a new level in the upcoming update!

As for EP2 content, we unfortunately can't use any of it without requiring that players own a copy of that game.

Is SDK 2007 enough to run mod or HL2 and episodes are required?

Source SDK Base 2007 is the only requirement. :)
