Get to know the story and cast of Overwatch.
Overwatch is in a sort of unusual place. It’s a team or role shooter like Team Fortress 2, but with a MOBA-like emphasis on the unique characteristics of individual characters, like League of Legends. Both of those games (and their broader genres) have a tradition of fronting excellent animated shorts, and it looks like Blizzard is taking up that mantle, too. Here’s the brief:
“Recall tells the story of Winston – a genetically engineered gorilla and brilliant scientist who longs for the days of heroism to return. In this episode, we explore Winston’s thoughts and memories as he wrestles with the decision to recall the agents of Overwatch, all while the forces of Talon stage an attack on his laboratory in the abandoned Watchpoint: Gibraltar.”
I rate this cartoon EB, for Extremely Blizzard.
