It can be accessed from any tablet or smartphone that is running either the Android or iOS operating systems. It can also be accessed with a web browser via either the official Need for Speed website website or the Need for Speed Network website.

OverWatchEdit

Players can use OverWatch to manipulate the gameplay session of any other player that is on their Autolog friends list. Participating in OverWatch will reward the player with Speed Points that contribute only towards their OverWatch rank.

A player using OverWatch can target any of their friends that are currently online and playing Need for Speed: Rivals. Targeting a friend will also highlight all other players that are currently participating within the same multiplayer session as their friend.

Each arrow shown highlights a player that is either of the racer or police faction. Selecting an arrow and then confirming to 'Target' that player will allow an OverWatch user to employ their abilities upon them.

FuelEdit

OverWatch supplies the player with a set amount consumable points known as Fuel. These points can be used to perform actions that directly alter the gameplay experience of a targeted player or send out the player's Network Driver on a mission.

Fuel can be resupplied by accepting an Extra Fuel mission or by reaching a higher OverWatch rank. Reaching higher ranks will increase the player's total Fuel capacity by two points. The effectiveness of an ability can be improved upon through continued usage.

OverWatch RanksEdit

Players will reach higher OverWatch Ranks as they reach SpeedPoint milestones. These milestones can be met by using abilities against or to aid players and by completing missions.

OverWatch ChallengesEdit

OverWatch Challenges are unlocked as the player reaches higher OverWatch Ranks. These challenges can be sequentualy activated through OverWatch and listed in the player's Autolog Playlist. Completing challenges will reward the player with unique liveries and additional vehicles for both factions.

AbilitiesEdit

The available abilities of the player will expand as they reach higher ranks within OverWatch. These abilities can be used to assist or hinder a targeted player through manipulating their vehicle as well as altering the presence of the RCPD.

MissionsEdit

Various missions can be selected to earn Speed Points towards a player's OverWatch rank. These missions cost a certain amount of Fuel and will take a certain amount of time that is also highlighted.

Missions use the player's Network Driver. The driver can not be interacted with in any manner or form throughout the duration of a mission. Only a single mission can be initiated at one time but another mission can be selected and accepted as soon as a previous mission concludes.

As the player progresses through Overwatch, new missions will appear. These missions cost more fuel and possess a far greater time duration, though the rewarded Speed Points will increase as well.
