Overwatch™ Unveiled at BlizzCon

In a time of global crisis, an international task force of soldiers, scientists, adventurers, and oddities known as Overwatch came together to restore peace to a war-torn world. After many years, the group's influence waned, and it was eventually disbanded. Overwatch might be gone now . . . but the world still needs heroes.

Today at BlizzCon 2014, the world got its first glimpse at Overwatch™, our new pick-up-and-play first-person shooter featuring an amazing cast of heroes and set in a technologically advanced, highly stylized future earth. Harnessing the incredible powers of their hero of choice, players will join forces in teams of six and battle each other across a range of futuristic global locations.
