Blizzard has released a new cinematic trailer for its upcoming shooter: Overwatch.

So Blizzard has made quite a name for itself for making kick-ass cinematics, and it looks like its upcoming shooter Overwatch will be no different. The company has just released a “theatrical” trailer for the game, which will make its debut in select theaters nationwide. You can check it out to the right.

The trailer show’s some of the game’s heroes being… well, heroic. Protecting the weak, helping the needy, and just doing good. It offers a bit of a glimpse into what the Overwatch organization of the game’s namesake actually is, although it doesn’t really explain why all of these defenders of the peace have been thrust into control-point battles against each other…

Overwatch, being a multiplayer-only shooter, will have to rely on such kind of cinematics, as well as in-game cues to tell its story. It’ll be interesting to see how it all plays out.

The game is set for release in Spring, 2016, for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
