Awesome Music / Overwatch

Go To

The soundtracks of Blizzard Entertainment games never fail to impress, and Overwatch is no exception.

  • Lúcio's tracks, "Rejuvenescência" and "We Move Together As One", are sweet progressive house tracks. They also got semi-orchestral remixes for his release in Heroes of the Storm.
  • The tracks associated with each map are all amazing, but players still have their favorites:

  • Overtime 3, despite its Nonindicative Name (said music only plays before a round starts), really helps set the mood for an imminent battle of epic proportions.
  • The music that plays during the loading screen in competitive is extremely cool and does a great job at telling you that shit's about to get real.
  • The heroic-sounding theme that plays during a Highlight/Play of the Game is suitably epic, despite only being about 10 or so seconds long. Thankfully, it's not a Long Song, Short Scene, as you get to hear it after every single match.
  • From the Uprising event, we have the main menu and final battle themes, both invoking a sense of (strangely epic) dread for the Null Sector-torn King's Row. The latter can become very pumping during it's segment when eliminating the OR-14 units, effectively the final boss of the mission.

  • The Anniversary event's main menu theme. The first few seconds sound heroic and very uplifting, while the rest of the theme has a strong "we've come a long way" feel to it, evoking a sense of nostalgia for long-time players.
  • A meta example: "A Hero Never Dies", made by JT Machinima. Featuring rapped verses from the perspectives of Winston, Widowmaker, McCree, Reaper, Bastion, and Tracer, it's very well-thought out and hilarious for fans. Its chorus ("Overwatch is back in town" / "If you're not a hero don't stick around") is also quite motivational considering the plot of Overwatch's return against Talon. Special props goes to their guest, South African/Australian singer Andrea Storm Kaden, who provided the voices of Widowmaker and Tracer in surprisingly good accents, and managed to avert Piss-Take Rap despite not normally being a rapper.

How well does it match the trope?
