Overwatch release is getting near and developer Blizzard Entertainment is preparing for launch festivities. As part of these launch festivities Blizzard is organizing an event at Cinemark theaters in US on Sunday evening May 22 and during the event a collection of cinematics, hero trailers and Overwatch animated shorts will be shown.

These Overwatch animated shorts  include two new episodes featuring Shimada Brothers, Hanzo and Genji, and the masked vigilante Soldier 76.

That is not all, as an added bonus the attendees will get a behind the scenes look at the game`s lore and storytelling efforts during the special developer panel hosted by Michele Morrow.

The screening are confirmed for the select theaters in Bellevue, San Francisco, and Plano. However, there are many other screening locations and to participate in these screenings theaters will need 100 reserved tickets purchases by May 12 before it is a sure thing.

If you sign-up and theater does not unlocks on time then don`t worry, a refund will be provided automatically for your ticket.

Blizzard recently organized an open beta for Overwatch, which started from May 9 and ended yesterday. In the open beta Competitive play feature was not included. Competitive Play is a tier based mode in which players fight against each other in moth long seasons.

Mode like this requires a lot of balancing, that is why the developers needed more time to polish this feature after the feedback from closed beta and open beta. This mode will require to implement and polish, that is why competitive play will not be available for some time after launch.

Call Of Duty Developer Treyarch helped the studio to make shooting mechanics of the consoles perfect. Blizzard was facing lack of precision in controller`s thumbsticks. Treyarch helped the studio to overcome this problem by assisting Blizzard to integrate aim assists in the game.
