If you've been living under a rock or don't play video games, Overwatch is now on-track to become one of the biggest releases of 2016.

The multiplayer first-person shooter, developed by Blizzard Studios, sees players take on the role of various heroes in a futuristic setting where they must, well, shoot the crap out of each other. There's a huge plotline involving Omnics, the UN, robots and a massive conflict.

Look, don't take our word for it. Play it yourself because it's really, really good. Already, Overwatch now has over 7,000,000 players across the globe - some of which are here in Ireland.

One such player spotted a neat little reference to Ireland - Cork, specifically - in one of the game's maps and posted it to Ireland's subreddit.

See that? There's a reason for that, of course. Blizzard Studios has its Customer Support department based in Blackpool, just outside of Cork City.
