Who would have thought that Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch would be considered a somewhat relaxing game? As it turns out, Elon Musk — the CEO of Tesla Motors and SpaceX — seems to think just that, as he praises Overwatch for being a “soothing” game.
Elon Musk Considers Overwatch to be “Soothing”
For a game that involves not just taking down an opposing team, but teamwork with your comrades as well, Overwatch may not be the top of mind title when one thinks of relaxing games. That doesn’t seem to be the case for Tesla Motors CEO, Elon Musk, who recently revealed that he finds Blizzard’s hit game to be a “soothing” experience.
When asked on Twitter whether or not he played Overwatch, Musk affirmed, “Yeah. I find it soothing.” Some may already be aware of Musk being a fan of Overwatch, as it was previously revealed back in 2016 that he enjoys the game on the PC platform. On the topic of who Musk’s main hero of choice is in Overwatch, the CEO had been rather adamant to keep mum regarding his preference, as he deemed it to be “too embarrassing.” However, after much prodding on Twitter, Musk finally divulged that his main character preference is none other than Soldier 76.
Yeah. I find it soothing.

For the uninitiated, Soldier 76 is known by some for being one of the easiest characters to maneuver and get the hang of in Overwatch. He is one of the recommended characters for beginners to try out as his style follows the classic formula of first-person shooter gameplay. This is all the more reinforced by the fact that Soldier 76 is even the featured character in Overwatch’s tutorial.
Overwatch’s Newest Hero
In other Overwatch news, the game’s latest hero, Brigitte, will soon become available to fans across PS4, Xbox One, and PC platforms. Overwatch’s 27th hero who takes on a more versatile approach to the support role, Brigitte will reportedly be accessible on March 20. She boasts of several abilities, including Rocket Flail, which allows her to strike several enemies in one swing. There is also her ability called Barrier Shield, which is a frontal energy barrier that is capable of absorbing a limited amount of damage. Several of her other skills and abilities include Repair Pack, Whip Shot, Shield Bash, Inspire, and Rally.
While Brigitte will become available for everyone on March 20, she is actually already available on Overwatch’s Public Test Realm. She was first revealed on February 28 and is the daughter of fellow Overwatch character Torbjorn.
