Judging by the latest news from Blizzard, Overwatch is for a long time. The authors multiplayer shooter intend to expand the game universe and respond to the most burning questions. For example, why the Tracer and the Fatal widow does not get along with each other? Or why the map “Post observation: Gibraltar” scattered a jar of peanut butter?
In General, Blizzard is going to release the comics and animated short films. The latter will be released within two months. The first episode will appear in March, but to look through small passages (and how they were created), you can now.
In addition, until the release of the game, Blizzard will publish a series of e-comics from different writers and artists. There are six editions, and the stories will tell about the different characters of Overwatch. The first series will be released in April and will be dedicated to a wandering bounty hunter McCree.
Finally, Blizzard is preparing a full-fledged comic book “First strike”, whose story will unfold during the Uprising of the machines for a few decades before the events of the game. Here we learn about the fate of a Soldier 76, Thorbjorn, Reaper and Reinhardt. “First strike” will appear in the course of the year.
