Everyone’s playing Overwatch – even Elon Musk

Elon Musk has revealed that he’s a fan of Blizzard’s brilliant team FPS, Overwatch.

It feels as if everyone’s playing Overwatch at times, such is the buzz surrounding the game. In actual fact, it’s been confirmed that around 7 million players have played the game to date.

One of those 7 million people is Elon Musk.

You would think that the billionaire entrepreneur might be too busy for something as frivolous and time-destroying as a multiplayer FPS. After all, he has not one but two hot tech companies to run in Tesla and SpaceX, whilst still needing to find the time to consider the odds that we’re all living in The Matrix.

You’d be wrong, though:

This raises a few questions, one of which being ‘does Musk play on PC or console?’ This is handily answered by the lovable genius himself:

Now, what do you suppose Musk’s favourite character is? The zen-like Zenyatta, perhaps? Or maybe the technical genius Torbjorn?

Overwatch is a team-based multiplayer shooter with 21 playable characters and 12 detailed maps. Players must work in teams to secure objectives, utilising their character’s unique skills to push their side forward.

The game currently supports a handful of modes, with competitive and ranked options to be added in the coming months.

We loved Overwatch, to the tune of a 9/10 review. You really should be playing it. Who knows, you might even bump into Elon Musk along the way.
