Blizzard Shows Off Overwatch in a New Trailer

By Kevin Tavore, 11 months ago
The Overwatch: Origins Edition beta launched on May 3rd to great fanfare. To commemorate the event, Blizzard has released a short trailer to give you a taste of the action and some details to teach you what the game is about.

Overwatch is a team-based shooter with its roots in Team Fortress 2 and MOBAs (though the game itself is not a MOBA). The game features 21 heroes across 12 maps. It is a multiplayer only shooter.

Overwatch's beta ends on May 9th. If you don't have time to play, we'll bring you our impressions next week once the beta ends. The full retail package releases May 24th.
