Want a summary of Overwatch, lore and story-wise? For those of you wanting a TL:DR of Overwatch’s history and origins in game lore, I’ve summarised it all here, along with Morrison, Reyes, Reinhardt, Ana and more! **Subscribe** -https://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=FailCraftCasts

What was Overwatch, how was it formed, what was its place in the world, how did it fall, and what might happen in future?


0:38 – First Omnic Crisis, Foundation of Overwatch
3:20 – Overwatch’s Golden Age
5:29 – The Fall of Overwatch
7:53 – The Present Day, and the Future.

What do you think about Overwatch’s origins and downfall? Who could Liao be, and why haven’t we heard about them since? Was it Reyes and Blackwatch who caused the shocking incidents that were reported to be Overwatch’s responsibility, or was this a smoke screen or some kind of framing? Will Overwatch ever become “legal” again, and what of the other heroic figures we’ve seen, like D.va, Lucio and Zarya? Might they come together in a new international peacekeeping force somehow with our existing heroes?

Would love to hear what you think in the comments – any feedback on how I can improve this or future vids, much appreciated 🙂
