Blizzard Shares Rare Footage Of Overwatch In Early Development

The birth of a giant.

It’s not often that we get to see under the hood of our favourite AAA games, especially when it comes to Blizzard’s own stable of massively popular titles. Therefore it was a bit of a surprise to see director Jeff Kaplan pull back the curtain on Overwatch at this year’s Blizzcon, giving fans a intricate look at how the incredible online shooter was put together.

The first clip, taken from September 2013, looks almost unrecognisable though it took just months for Overwatch to start coming together. It’s a great watch and one that covers early builds of maps while delving into character abilities and how they were playtested.
