Blizzard just partnered with various cinemas across the US to show Overwatch trailers and cinematics on May 22 — perfect timing to promote the game as its release is just two days after.

“For one night only, on May 22, selected theaters in the United States and Canada will dedicate their projectors to Blizzard’s new team-based shooter, broadcasting a collection of Overwatch cinematics, hero trailers, and animated shorts—including two new episodes, featuring the Shimada brothers, Hanzo and Genji, and the masked vigilante, Soldier: 76. As an added bonus, attendees will also get a behind-the-scenes look at the game’s lore and storytelling efforts during a special developer panel hosted by Michele Morrow (not to mention some pretty sweet swag). “

Since this special event at US cinemas is for one night only, anyone that would like to see the upcoming MOBA shooter on the bigger screen better reserve their tickets soon. Blizzard already revealed the list of cinemas going to show Overwatch videos on May 22. The list includes:

  • Cinemark Mesa 16 (Mesa, AZ)
  • Century 16 (Salt Lake City, UT)
  • Lincoln Square Cinemas (Bellevue, WA)
  • Century San Francisco Centre 9 (San Francisco, CA)
  • Cinemark 18 & XD (Los Angeles, CA)
  • Century Stadium 25 & XD (Orange, CA)
  • Cinemark Tinseltown 20 & XD (Pflugerville, TX)
  • Cinemark Legacy & XD (Plano, TX)
  • Century 12 Evanston/Cinearts 6 & XD (Evanston, IL)

As Blizzard stated, the projection may be held even at cinemas that are not on the list. But to make this possible, people who want to watch Overwatch videos in their city would have to organize and purchase at least 100 tickets by May 12.

Blizzard recently completed the Overwatch open beta and players are now anticipating the big event of May 24 when the game is officially launched. Overwatch will be released to Windows PCs, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, and it is already available for pre-purchase.

For anyone interested in attending the Overwatch event, you can purchase tickets here.
