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

A darn shame. Can't even get steam to recognize this. Miss playing it.
My friend managed to set up an Overwatch server.
It doesn't show up on the server browser, so you'll need to connect by typing "connect 126.96.36.199:27035" in the console.
Guessing it's not up anymore.
would love to play this game again with a handful people
well the server is still alive
Can confirm it works.
I do hope this is resurrected so that work can continue on this project. It had so much potential and was extremely fun with multiple people.
well....This is a damn shame.
It's most likely they just gave up on it. I seriously doubt this will ever take off again. This happens to small mods all the time.
Besides, you're 7 years too late for any revival attempts.
What happend to the Devs? :(
