This past weekend I was able to try out the beta for Overwatch and found it to be very fun. Has anyone else been able to try it out yet?

Regardless, is anyone going to be playing it? It would be a very fun game to play with others since strategy and tactics seems to be a core components of it.
The official release date is May 24 and it is available for pre-order on Blizzard's online store.

For those that are not familiar with it here is a brief summary taken from it's Wikipedia entry - 

Overwatch features squad-based combat with two opposing teams of six players each. Players choose one of several hero characters, each with their own unique abilities and role classes. The four character roles include: offense characters with high speed and attack but low defense, defense characters meant to form choke points for enemies, support characters that provide buffs and debuffs for their allies and enemies respectively (such as healing or speed alterations), and tank characters that have a large amount of armor and hit points to withstand enemy attacks and draw fire away from teammates. Players can switch between characters in-game following deaths, which is encouraged by the game's overall design. The game's maps are inspired by real-world locations; the first three maps unveiled ("King's Row", "Hanamura", "Temple of Anubis" are inspired by London, Japan, and the ruins of Ancient Egypt.

I've heard good things about it, one of my coworkers is a HUGE Blizzard fan. I might try it out.

I've seen some of the advertisements for it on TV and it looks pretty fun.

I don't see us setting up a server but if it goes on sale for a nice price I might get it for shit & giggles.

I thoroughly enjoyed Overwatch. It's going to be one of my main games more than likely.

It's a pretty fun game, definitely not something I can play hours on end but fun nevertheless!

A buddy of mine bought the game thinking it would be released on Mac...so he now lets me play on his Blizzard account
