About This Quiz

From robot monks to Scandinavian scientists, to a genius gorilla, Overwatch's cast of characters is certainly colorful! Do you think you can identify 40 of them in this quiz?

Overwatch's origins stem from two different projects under Blizzard Entertainment: "Project Titan" and "Prometheus." Its aesthetics are meant to be true to Blizzard's style - colorful and approachable, drawing particular inspiration from sister game, World of Warcraft.

Overwatch - the fictional organization - was created during the Omnic Crisis as an international task force, seeking to help those in need and restore peace to the world. Though the organization has disbanded, new heroes have since arisen, such as D.Va and Lúcio!

Though all dubbed "heroes" in-game, quite a few of the player characters are much more on the villainous side. Similarly, Overwatch isn't without its adversaries, including major terrorist organization, Talon. There have actually been Overwatch members who became Talon members, and some heroes who were never even affiliated with Overwatch at all! Do you know who they are?

With all the characters (both playable and non-playable) having quirks and unique stories, it's no doubt why they're a huge part of the game's success. When it comes to Overwatch characters, will you get "Play of the Game" or throw the match? Take our quiz and find out!
