Blizzard recently announced on its Twitter page that Overwatch has breached the 25 million plus players mark. This awesome figure qualifies it for membership in that very elite club. It entered the 20 million mark last October 2016. And with this new figure, it is now the fastest video game of Blizzard that reached this milestone.
There are valid reasons for this amazing feat. Players all over the world must have seen many attractive features in this video game that inspired them to play it and perhaps encourage others to play it as well. We examined Overwatch and here are the things that we found out. What we have unraveled could be some of the most important reasons why more than 25 million gamers around the world enjoy playing this video game.
Blizzard Regularly Updates Overwatch - For Free
Unlike other titles that only release their DLCs if players pay the right fees, Overwatch does it for free. Blizzard has been consistently releasing updates of the game and never charges the players for it. Lately, the game developer released two new playable characters without charging the players anything.
These two are Sombra, the offensive hacker and Ana, the sniper-healer. Along with these two characters, Blizzard also conducts Seasonal Events regularly. These events are timed to real-world events. In December 2016, Overwatch launched its Winter Wonderland, a Christmas-themed event. Now, it is busy drumming up its Chinese New Year event in line with the Year of the Rooster.
This Video Game Offers Plain Fun
When was the last time you really enjoyed playing a video game? Most of the current titles today either terrify you with ghostly and murderous characters and gameplay, or tighten your nerves because of their very fast-paced actions. But playing Overwatch will just give you plain fun. It is a first-person shooter that has an inviting and bright theme.
All the graphic elements of Overwatch have a bright outlook. Its animations, from the opening scenes, the loot box unlock and the Hero Gallery evoke the feeling of brightness and levity. You will get the feeling of fun as the characters upgrade their powers and deploy them with colorful fireworks display. Blizzard has been aiming at your sense of fun and enjoyment and they seem to be successful in doing it.
All The Characters In This Game Are Worth Playing
One of the things that Blizzard has done to Overwatch that makes it fun to play is the fact that all of its characters are worth playing. In other words, there are no "boring" characters in this video game. This is testimony to the hard work that Blizzard has undertaken to make it attractive to gamers.
You can easily control every character in this game and that is very essential in enhancing your gameplay experience. If you want to make an assault on your enemies and break down their defenses, you can spawn in using three heroes equipped with rocket launchers and wipe out your enemies easily. The controls of Overwatch are responsive and tactile. The same thing can be said if you are on the defensive end. Watch the video below to see why it has inspired more than 26 million people to spend time with it.
