Created in true Blizzard style and directed by Jeff Kaplan, Overwatch is a fresh new concept in the FPS genre. The official announcement came November 7, 2014 at BlizzCon, where they showed gameplay and 12 characters with the promise of many more to come.
Overwatch The story begins at a point about 30 years in a highly fictionalized version of the future earth. A time when humans and robots known Omnix existed together. History, like Chris Metzen says, is that this breed of robots went “crazy” and started attacking all. To fight, each nation is their elite soldiers and formed what is now known as Overwatch.
Their job was to save Earth from the Omnix, which they did with great success. Over the next 25 years, they were the protectors of the planet as an international coalition. Some agents have remained, some were replaced as needed for some reason, but as time went on something else happened and over the next 5 years, Overwatch fell apart. This is where you, the players enter. Can you save Overwatch and once again become the hero you once were?
