In Digital Warfare, we play a variety of games. These are some of the games we support and play competitively.
League of Legends (LoL) is a multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) video game developed and published by Riot Games. The game is free to play, but is supported by microtransactions. In LoL, players take the role of an unseen summoner that controls a champion. There are 141 unique champions, each with their own unique abilities and spells. The champions progressively get stronger as the game goes on in levels, items and abilities. The goal is to destroy the enemy team's nexus, which is essentially the heart of the base and is protected by plenty of defensive structures. Each League of Legends match is unique.
PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) is an online multiplayer battle royale game developed and published by PUBG Corporation, a daughter company of Bluehole. It's based on previous mods that were created by Brendan "PlayerUnknown" Greene for other games. The mods were using the film Battle Royale for inspiration and eventually expanded into a unique game. The game-mode puts up to 100 players on a remote island. Both strategic gameplay and shooting skills are equally important. Players try to locate and scavenge for weapons, vehicles and supplies across the battleground's safe zone, which decreases in size over time and directs surviving players into smaller areas to force them to fight to their death.
Team Fortress 2 (TF2) is a class-based first-person shooter game developed and published by Valve Corporation. It is the sequel to the 1996 mod Team Fortress and its 1999 remake, Team Fortress Classic. In Team Fortress 2, players join one of two teams comprising nine character classes. There are multiple game modes where players battle for objectives, including capture the flag and king of the hill. New content - including maps, items and game modes, as well as community-made updates - is continuously being released. TF2 has similar gameplay to previous releases in the series - its focus is on two opposing teams competing and fighting for an objective.
Hearthstone, originally Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, is a free-to-play online digital card game based in the Warcraft universe developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment. Players choose to play as one of nine Warcraft Classes and then take turns playing cards from their customizable decks to cast spells, use heroic weapons and abilities or summon powerful minions to defeat their opponent. Every Warcraft class is represented by an epic hero. Some features of the game are various game modes, crafting, friendly duels, quests and leveling system.
Fortnite: Battle Royale is a free-to-play battle royale video game developed and published by Epic Games with inspiration from games like PUBG and H1Z1. FBR is a spin-off from Epic Games' Fortnite: Save The World, which is a cooperative survival game with construction elements. Just like PUBG, FBR features up to 100 players: alone, in duos or in squads of up to four players. All players attempt to be the last player (or group) alive by killing other players, while staying within a constantly shrinking safe zone. If they don't stay within the safe zone, they take lethal damage. All players start with only their glider and a pickaxe. Once they land from the battle bus, players must scavenge buildings and their environment to find weapons and items for survival. After that, players have to kill and avoid getting killed by other players. As the safe zone shrinks, players are forced to confront each other and fight to the death.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) is a multiplayer first-person shooter video game and a part of the Counter-Strike series developed and published by Valve Corporation and their partner Hidden Path Entertainment. It is the fourth game in the CS series. The game pits two teams against each other: the Terrorists and the Counter-Terrorists. Both sides are forced to eliminate the other while also contesting separate objectives. Depending on the game mode, the Terrorists and the Counter-Terrorists complete objectives such as securing a location to plant or defuse a bomb and rescuing or guarding hostages. In total, there are eight game modes. CS:GO also has a competitive, ranked scene.
Overwatch is a multiplayer first-person shooter video game developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment. It is Blizzard's fourth major franchise, after Warcraft, Diablo, and Starcraft. Overwatch features team-based combat matches between two opposing teams of six players each. Players play one of a wide range of hero characters, each with their own unique powers, ultimate abilities and role on the battlefield: offense, defense, tank and support. The game encourages team synergy to contest the objectives. Players are allowed to switch to other heroes during the matches. There are multiple game modes, including weekly brawls. Progression in Overwatch is built around earning experience and leveling up, showing how long the player has been playing the game.
