Overwatch is a Blizzard first person shooter video game , released May 24, 2016 on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Set on planet Earth in the year 2070, it sees a world permeated by a very advanced technology (among which robotics and artificial intelligence stands out). After a company in charge of creating sentient AI is closed for fraud, the information management centers are closed. Subsequently, a certain God program starts a production of sentient robots with the aim of killing human beings, starting a civil war. To combat it, the government then creates an elite body called Overwatch, which enlists the best soldiers in the world.
The videogame from which the figures are drawn is totally online and sees two teams of 6 players fighting each other: each character presents his own weapons and abilities, making the style of play different from character to character.
