Overwatch Gameplay - Bastion Defense Role (Closed Beta Bastion Gameplay)

Defense Role Bastion Gameplay in the new Overwatch Closed Beta. My forth day with the game and learning as I go but so far it's been very fun and entertaining even for a person like me who is not very into the FPS genre
It appears there will be no Beta key | keys and accounts are flagged for access as was the case with the Heroes of the Storm Alpha/Beta testing.

Once a frontline combatant in the devastating Omnic Crisis, this curious Bastion unit now explores the world, fascinated by nature but wary of a fearful humanity.


Overwatch™ is a team-based shooter where heroes do battle in a world of conflict.
Soldiers. Scientists. Adventurers. Oddities.

In a time of global crisis, an international task force of heroes banded together to restore peace to a war-torn world.
It ended the crisis and helped to maintain peace in the decades that followed, inspiring an era of exploration, innovation, and discovery. But after many years, Overwatch's influence waned, and it was eventually disbanded.
Overwatch is gone… but the world still needs heroes.

Overwatch will feature 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-oriented characters with high speed and attack but low defense, defense-oriented 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. 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.
