Can you play Overwatch on PlayStation 5? Fans are wondering if they can play the popular first-person shooter from Blizzard on the next-generation console. Especially since Overwatch 2 news has been lacking as of late.

You can play Overwatch on the next-gen console but it will feel different in your hands as the vibrations of the controller will tell you will indicate different types of damage a player is taking at that moment. The controller will garner different reactions from users, but that's part of the whole new console experience.

The frame rate will also be better on this new console because of its technological upgrades and even during those large battle frenzies, it should be able to handle texture. During the beginning of matches, there should be no issue with loading up textures and slow loading to low poly textures.

There is also external hard drive compatibility for your PlayStation 4 compatible games like Overwatch so you should be able to download it without taking up space from your PlayStation 5 games in the system.

Overwatch fans won't have to worry about keeping their PlayStation 4s hooked up as they get excited for Symmetra's Restoration Challenge.
