The first "Overwatch" project came about in 2007. Blizzard planned a massive multiplayer online game called "Titan" in a whole new universe. After lots of to-ing and fro-ing this new creation was cancelled in 2014. However in the same year, Overwatch was finally announced, drawing many of its characteristics from Titan.
As is customary at Blizzard, they took the time needed to create a brilliant game which was finally published in May 2016. It was a hit with 25 million players in the first year, making it Blizzard's most popular game.
This was a considerable achievement in the light of competition from games like "Hearthstone", "Heroes of the Storm", "Diablo" and "Warcraft". At EMP's Overwatch shop, you'll find the best choice of merch for gaming evenings and every other type of activity.
The story is set on a futuristic earth and is a result of a dispute between Man and Machine. Overwatch is a group of heroes, formed from the United Nations. They are then broken down into various groups. There is Talon (a terrorist organisation), the Omnics (operated through artificial intelligence robots) and then the heroes of Overwatch.
Sound chaotic? Well it is! As a rule, 12 players in 2 teams with their very own heroes go head to head in different places with very different goals. Thanks to the countless superhuman capabilities, the result is a true spectacle with action on every pixel of the screen.
Overwatch fan merch
The enormous fan base has of course a very specific need: Overwatch fan merch. Heroes like Tracer, the time travelling former pilot and fearless adventurer; or Widowmaker, the scrupulous contract killer from the terrorist group Talon are an inspiration for cool fan merch worldwide.
The fight between good and evil has always formed an important part of Blizzard's universe. In this fourth independent universe (after "Warcraft", "Diablo" and "Starcraft") there are endless possibilities for Overwatch merch which can be used to help the cause.
