- Fixed an issue with voice-chat that could lead to users losing voice communications for the entirety of the game session
Overwatch is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. The title can be bought for $60 on consoles and $40 on PC.
Since its release, the game has been received really well by the community and by reviewers. Most of its reviews show 10/10 scores but we believe that in its current state it isn’t a 10/10 game.
Overwatch is a fantastic game and it is hard to keep your hands off it. However, playing it for a longer period of time makes you question its price to value ratio. It costs $60 on consoles and offers only 3 main game modes played across 12 maps, no single play campaign, lame microtransactions, lazy PvE content, no ranked mode (for the time being).
Reviewers gave it 10/10 based on a promise by Blizzard that eventually the game would be worth $60. Since Blizzard has a good reputation in such matters the game got a free pass while other games were criticized for the same issue.
Lots of free content will be added to Overwatch in the future. We can expect to see new maps, characters, game modes, customization items and much more. Hopefully, this content would be worth it.
All in all, Blizzard has done a tremendous job and to gamers it often feels like a religious obligation to keep playing the game, it is that much fun.
Have you tried Overwatch? What are you thoughts on its lack of content for the time being?
