I spent most of the day playing Overwatch.
I reached Lv25 and unlocked Competitive Mode along with a bunch of achievements.
I also got my first Legendary skin: Breakaway Lúcio
A friend of mine played the game during the Free Trial Weekend and she ended up buying the full game on PS4
My sister bought the game as well. On PC,that is. She's been already playing it on Xbox One.
We just finished playing a few matches together. It was super funTwitter: @Crystallise_

there are lots of unlockables. with every level up,you get a lootbox,which has different contents each time. you can level up to infinity(no,really). if you get something in a lootbox that you already own,you'll just get coins for it instead. though you can get coin drops that aren't from duplicates necessarily. and of course,you can use the coins to buy skins,emotes,highlight intros,sprays and voicelines.
the rarity of skins can be: Blue(Rare) - Purple(Epic) and Orange(Legendary)
emotes and highlight intros are all epic(except for one legendary emote)
sprays and voicelines are all common.
common items cost 25 coins,rare ones cost 75,epic ones cost 250 and legendaries cost 1000.
there are 22 playable heroes(with a 23rd on the way),all having different abilities and such:
Ana Amari - Support Sniper. She's Egyptian. She can heal her allies by shooting them with her sniper rifle. She also has a Biotic Grenade that she can throw to heal herself and/or her teammates and a side-arm that shoots sleep darts. Her ultimate is Nanoboost which boosts the strength,speed and protection of an ally.
Fareeha Amari(or simply known as Pharah) - Offense Hero. She's Egyptian as well and she's Ana's daughter. She has the abiltity to fly(using a jetpack of sorts...it's built into her armor I think) and she can shoot rockets from her arm cannon and concussive blasts that can knock enemies off the map. Her ultimate is Rocket Barrage,which looks like this:
Bastion: He's an omnic(a robot basically) that was designed for war/battle and can transform into a turrret and deal insane amounts of damage. He has a little bird friend. His ultimate is called "Configuration: Tank" which turns him into a tank and it can also deal massive damage(he's Overpowered as hell,though he's a stationary character so he's not viable on matches where you have to capture points)
Zenyatta: He's an omnic as well,though he's more like the Synths from Fallout 4. He's a monk from Nepal and he's a support/healer character. He uses "Orbs of Destruction" to damage enemies(basically he throws balls at enemies). He has two abilities: "Orb of Harmony" which can be used on teammates to heal them and "Orb of Discord" which can be used on enemies to buff the damage you do to them. His ultimate is "Transcendence" where he becomes invincible for about 10 seconds I think and heals any allies nearby.
