Today, Blizzard announced that fans would be able to watch an animated short for one of its characters in the upcoming game, Overwatch.
The news came via a post on the Battle.net blog which revealed that next Monday, fans would be able to “delve deeper into the world of Overwatch” by watching the premiere of its first animated short.
Called “Recall,” the short will focus on the genetically engineered gorilla called Winston. These animated shorts look set to be essential watching for anyone looking forward to getting their hands on Overwatch as they’ll provide some interesting little tidbits about each character.
According to the post, the episode will allow fans to “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.”
The most important bit of information from this blog post is that the short is set to premiere exclusively on Xbox.com/Overwatch on March 21 at 12 p.m. PDT. Whether or not this may suggest some exclusive content or DLC coming to the Xbox One version of the game remains unclear, but it sure seems like there is a relationship between the console and upcoming game.
For those living in the US, you can grab a quick 60-second teaser for the animated short if you tune into AMC and watch Better Call Saul that night.
