Once again, Blizzard totally captures our interest and emotions in one of their animated features. Winston, who is seen throughout other shorts as the leader/organizer of the broken Overwatch squad, is making an emotional outreach/video for the remaining Overwatch team. With his own quirkyness/humor, we see him try to put himself together and give the heroes of Overwatch to come back together and try to make their world a better place.
30 years ago, the omnics declared a war and the nations of the world had no answer. Until they called upon a small group of heroes: Overwatch was created to rescue humanity from the Omnic Crisis! We became the greatest champions of peace and progress mankind has ever seen! You were chosen because you had powers and abilities that made you…. You joined because you…. You already know this…
Look… the people decided they were better off without us. They even called us criminals.
They tore our family apart… But look around! Someone has to do something! WE have to do something!
We can make a difference again. The world needs us now, more than ever!
Are you with me?
The video announces that the free open beta for Overwatch is May 5-9. We hope to see you in-game!
