Overwatch entered the market in 2016, as a multiplayer team shooter game, which Blizzard Entertainment created and published. The game assigns each player to one of two teams. Each team has six players from the game’s list of characters or “heroes.” Each hero joins the game with distinct abilities, which help the team to finish objectives on the map.
Players start at endorsement level 1, progressing to level 5. With every endorsement, the player’s endorsement level is impacted. If a player doesn’t receive additional endorsements, his level may decrease. Punishments in the game’s reporting system may also strip a player of his endorsements.
Players may receive Loot Boxes, depending on the endorsement level. Higher levels result in a higher number of Loot Boxes awarded. After a player accomplishes a feat or exhibits talent, the game will unlock the badge of honor. A breakdown of all trophies is available in the main menu’s career overview section. Players may share these achievements with friends.
During the game, a player gains higher levels and unlocks options for customizing the hero’s sound and look. Customizing the character is also accessible in the main menu in the Hero Gallery.
Loot Boxes also offer options for customization. A player unlocks a box at each level up. Gamers also obtain credits to use to buy more customizing options. A player receives a Portrait Frame at each 10th level, until he has earned all of them.
