LEGO Overwatch Sets Are Coming Soon from Blizzard
Overwatch is making the leap from your screen to real-life with the announcement of new LEGO sets based on the massively popular game.
Since its release in 2016, Blizzard Entertainment’s Overwatch has not only amassed a huge and devoted fanbase, but also found ways to expand beyond the game with its own dedicated eSports League, several tie-in short films and videos, and now its very own LEGO sets.
Following previous teases, Blizzard has officially revealed that the company has partnered with The LEGO Group to create LEGO Overwatch products, with the first teaser showing an adorably miniaturized Tracer.
While no specific release window was given for the sets other than that they are “coming soon,” the teaser video still gives a good indication that the game seems like a natural fit to be made in LEGO form, and it will be interesting to see how the game carries over into different play sets and kits.
Aside from Tracer being confirmed as a figurine, it’s assumed that we’ll probably see far more of the cast be miniaturized in LEGO form, and hopefully some of the game’s maps for those that want to recreate the game’s matches in real life.
Overwatch is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. For a closer look at what’s in store from the upcoming LEGO sets, you can check out the teaser video below.
Build the perfect team, brick by brick.
