Blizzard release their first in a series of Overwatch animated shorts. This first episode "Recall" tells the story of Winston, the Heroic gorilla/scientist of the Overwatch team. 

This Overwatch short showcases some amazing, almost Pixar-esque quality, giving gamers some instant attachment to the Overwatch characters and storyline. The strange thing is that Overwatch will be a multiplayer only game and the game itself will have no story mode, leaving Blizzard with no option but to tell the story of Overwatch through animated short stories and comics.  

Below is a brief description of "Recall", the first of many Overwatch animated shorts. 

 

   "Recall" tells the story of Winston—a genetically engineered gorilla and brilliant scientist who longs for the days of heroism to return. In this episode, we explore Winston's thoughts and memories as he wrestles with the decision to recall the agents of Overwatch, all while the forces of Talon stage an attack on his laboratory in the abandoned Watchpoint: Gibraltar.

 

 

Overwatch will have an open beta on May 5th to May 9th, with the full game releasing on May 24th. Below are the PC system requirements for Overwatch.
