Blizzard’s Overwatch is a special type of FPS (First Person Shooter) game for multiple reasons! But the one I’m going to mention probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. What I love about it is that you don’t need to actually play it to be a fan of it (like me! I don’t play it or own it but I still think it’s super nifty and cool!)!
Now, how are you able to enjoy it without playing it? That doesn’t make sense, Ms. Ashe!
First, there’s a small 6 minute cinematic trailer Blizzard put out when advertising the game.
Then there’s animated shorts where you can learn about the characters on YouTube! Oddly, there’s no actual canon story within the game itself. Blizzard instead chose to tell the game’s story through animated shorts they released over time instead!
All the shorts can be found at the official Overwatch Channel. So far there have been five released:
I believe my favorites so far are “Recall” and “The Last Bastion.” Be prepared, they will make you feel things. Many, many feels. Watch with care!
Like what you see? We also have copies of Overwatch for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One available at the library!
