Overwatch

Exploring a new universe in Starwatch: Galactic Rescue

  • To create the space-operatic vibe of the latest Overwatch event, the team converted Horizon: Lunar Colony into the Infinite Galactrius, Galactic Emperor Sigma’s flagship
  • Features like the outdoor moon terrain, color palette, and unique traps were altered and added to give the ship a more sinister feel
  • Changing the game’s usually bright and hopeful atmosphere into something much darker was a significant undertaking, but it also allowed developers to experiment with moodier art and environments
