Overwatch "Recall" Short Released - Unleash The Feels!
Published on March 22nd, 2016
Blizzard's Overwatch is mere months away now, and the lore-building, story-crafting and universe-shaping is all in full swing. As part of a series of storytelling ahead of Overwatch's confirmed May 23rd release date, the first animated short, "Recall", released last night. Overwatch is a team-based 6v6 shooter set in a colourful universe of heroes, villains, soldiers, scientists and oddities. Although it's by no means compulsory to get into the history of the game, you'd be missing out given that there's a bunch of animated shorts, digital comic books and a graphic novel all coming this year. Jumping into the backstory of Winston, Overwatch's very own genius scientist and resident gorilla, Recall dives into his origin story as well as various goings on in the Watchpoint Gibraltar level of Overwatch where he's based,. We also discover why the organisation was originally shut down, before the Talon terrorist organisation launch an attack on the facility, led by a ghostly stranger.. From Overwatch's introductory cinematic way back at Blizzcon 2014, the slightly cutesy feel has always been a part of the game and its assets, but it's feeling like all the good bits of Pixar meeting Blizzard's characteristic action-adventure lore-building to us! Check out the feature below - we'll be jumping into the world of Overwatch a bunch more at GINX over the coming months, so it's a great time to get your story on.
