The first animated short for Blizzard’s Overwatch has been released, “Recall”. The short features Winston.
Winston is a genetically engineered Gorilla, who was raised for scientific discovery. Formerly part of the Horizon Lunar Colony, Winston took part in the renewed exploration of space led by humanity.
Taken under the wings of one of the scientists, Winston managed to escape when the other gorilla’s caused an uprising. He went to earth, where he joined Overwatch.
Cut off once again from a world he has come to know, the short gives us more of an insight into Winston’s past.
Blizzard’s animation is once again extraordinary, giving the stylistic choices an ageless appearance. This is the first of hopefully many shorts regarding the game, including a world building aspect to an otherwise typical FPS.
