If you're familiar with Overwatch, one of the things that make the popular shooter stand out is the music. It may be the case that you may not hear a lot of it given how short it is and the focus is shifted on gameplay. With that said, Blizzard has released the Overwatch: "cities and countries" album that showcases the individual intro tracks that play in the game based on different maps it is set in. The album is on every streaming platform and available to purchase. There's even an in game event tied to it featuring one of of its musically inclined and reluctant antagonists, Sigma. I got to speak to veteran composers, Adam Burgess and Derek Duke who worked on the game's score and also gave us details behind the process of what went into the music and setting. What were the various influences that you chose when making the music for maps? You know Overwatch is grounded in the real world and a lot of the maps are based in countries with rich musical heritages and we try to be respectful of that and put a lot of thought and effort in a way that we think fits the overwatch universe.

In the video, you can see what looks like a bunch of Symmetras stacked on top of each other quickly beaming the keys. I made a workshop gamemode that plays songs on the Paris piano with dummy bots. Wengzan explained in the comments to the Reddit post that they used a website to convert a MIDI song into a form that Overwatch can read. You paste it into this specific Workshop mode and it will figure out how to interpret the notes for you. According to Wengzan, his song was only possible in the PTR version of the Workshop where several issues with lag were fixed. They provided a bunch of codes for different songs if you want to check them out yourself. All you have to do is paste it into the Workshop, press your Interact key to start it, and control the speed with your Primary Fire and Secondary Fire buttons. When it first launched, many of the things you could do with it resembled game modes that were already in the game — minus a few ways to practice your aim , draw on walls , and play a version of Flappy Bird. With the major improvements to Workshop in the PTR , we should start to see a lot more non-traditional modes being created — or maybe in this case, composed.
