Home » Blizzard teases upcoming Overwatch team-based shooter with CGI short

Overwatch is Blizzard’s upcoming team-based shooter set to release on May 24 for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4 users. To keep the buzz going around its upcoming product, the developer released the first in a series of CGI animated shorts taking a closer look at several of the game’s heroes.

The company’s first clip, titled Recall, clocks in at around eight minutes long and Blizzard focuses on the super-intelligent genetically engineered gorilla Winston.

What Blizzard is making here is more than just promoting a game: the company is actually producing cinematic content and in the process, showing that it’s slowly moving towards a more expansive business model — something that was made clear when Blizzard Entertainment announced their partnership with Legendary Pictures for the making of the Warcraft movie.

An open beta for Overwatch will begin on May 3 for those who pre-ordered the game. What’s nice is that you can invite a friend, as well. You should know, however, that the early access offer ends on April 29, so get moving if you’re interested!
