You’ll be able to exactly locate allies and enemies by sound, even when you can’t see them. And you’ll become one with the world of Overwatch®.

        Overwatch® is an exciting and highly stylized new 6v6 team-based shooter game, set in a near-future Earth. Bold characters with extraordinary abilities fight across fantastic—yet familiar—battlegrounds. You can choose from 21 unique heroes, each with their own incredible powers. Then team up to compete and create endless opportunities for victory.

        Dolby Atmos over headphones for PC will give you a huge competitive edge. You’ll know which way to turn when your enemy is behind you. Or be aware of threats from above. With Dolby Atmos, you’ll get a much better sense of the combat scene around you, whether they are friends or foes.

        You can use any stereo headphones with your PC, and you won’t need any extra hardware or software to play Overwatch® in Dolby Atmos. Just your wits—and quick reflexes.

      • Dolby Atmos over Headphones

        With Dolby Atmos, any sound can be rendered as a single audio element, an object independent from the rest of the soundtrack.

    • Experience Overwatch® in Dolby Atmos

      You can play Overwatch® with any pair of stereo headphones.  See below for a step by step guide to enable Dolby Atmos.

      • Step 1

         Go to Options, and select Sound

      • Step 2

        Toggle the Dolby Atmos for Headphones button ON

        You’ll need stereo headphones for this option. Be sure to turn off any 5.1 or 7.1 processing built into your headphones. Dolby Atmos processing for headphones is a standard feature in Overwatch®. Other virtualization features on your computer or headphones will interfere with the game sound and you won’t get the Dolby Atmos experience.
