Win tickets to the JHB launch of Overwatch

Overwatch is out next week, bringing Blizzard’s much-anticipated Hero Shooter to retail – and also ending the godawful withdrawal that long-time beta players have been experiencing. Yes, you’ll be able to raise ice walls as Mei, six-shot an entire group of people dead as McCree and Turret your way to victory as Bastion again soon.

Perhaps you didn’t play the open beta and wonder what all the fuss is about. Perhaps you did, but just want to spend an evening in the company of like-minded gamers who’re excited about Overwatch. If you’re in Johannesburg or its surrounds, you can. Next week – at 6Pm on Tuesday evening in Northern Johannesburg, there’s a launch event for Blizzards shooter – and we’re giving you and a friend the chance to join us.

We’ve got spots for three people and their plus ones to attend the Overwatch launch. All you need to do is tell us who your favourite Overwatch character is in the comments right here. Add in why it is that they tickle your fancy, and we’ll add you to the random draw which will take place on Monday 23 May.

There will be food and drinks and of course, PC’s and consoles set up to play some Overwatch. One or two or (more!) of us will be there too, so come say hi! And then, show us how much better at Overwatch you are than us.

    I really enjoyed playing Junkrat in the open beta. He is great at defending choke points while not putting himself into too much danger. Has really good mobility and burst damage too.

    Torbjörn, he is a complete package, long range (normal shoot), shotgun (alternate fire), hammer for close quarters and then just the turret. What more do you need to lock down a point
