Though there are still some hotly anticipated titles due in 2016, we might already have the game of the year on our hands. Overwatch has been on our radar for a while now but it recently blew up in a big way with an open beta that attracted 9.7 million players earlier this month, doubling that of Destiny and a third more than The Division.
In typical Blizzard fashion, Overwatch is impressive looking yet runs well on a wide range of hardware. It scales down to work on low-end hardware but can also be cranked up to take advantage of high-end gear, especially at the 4K resolution.
The game engine was developed by Blizzard specifically for Overwatch and this goes a long way in explaining why the game flows so well. Between the $40 base price and the fact that class-based shooters have been relatively stagnant since the arrival of Team Fortress 2 nearly nine years ago, Overwatch is poised to be hugely popular among PC gamers. Of course, one question remains: can your hardware handle it?
