    Hey everyone, hope your summer's going well (despite this awful excuse for weather)

    Sooooo I have Overwatch, totally enjoying it thus far, think it's really fun etc etc you've heard it all before...

    But how much of an impact will playing online games in Overwatch cost me? I spoke to my step-dad, but he didn't really understand what I was talking about re the online part of Overwatch, and stated we have unlimited broadband. On the basis that 'unlimited' truly does mean unlimited, that would be great, cause I could play as much as I wanted without huge fiscal consequences! But what I don't want is a massive spike in the internet bill because I was naive. :shock: If anyone can shed a little light on what could happen with the tiny amount of info I just typed out, that would be appreciated!

    Unlimited means unlimited so apart from buying the actual game it's not going to cost you anything

    Most games will use (far) less than 200Kbps including voice chat so even if you're on a limited broadband contract you'll find that online gaming won't really drain your broadband allowances too much
