Blizzard Entertainment’s Japanese anime-themed video game has made waves for its compelling multiplayer gaming and great character backgrounds for a game perceived to de-prioritize storylines by telling it through animated short films and readable content.
Overwatch concerns the war that happened between humans and assassin robots called “Omnics.” Sixty years into the future, humanity’s technology, and scientific capability had reached full potential, which led to the production of Omnics. The “Omnic Crisis” had led to the formation of the Overwatch, which grouped combat specialists to restore order against the robot threat.
However, due to Overwatch’s untoward actions, the organization was disbanded due to public condemnation. The continuing threat of the Omnics and the increasing unscrupulous activities of corporations using proxy wars and economic deterrence had led the band of heroes to reform their group despite the condemnation.
