In the 21st Century, mankind faced its greatest threat, The Omnic Crisis. The artificial beings known as Omnics were built to bolster manufacturing and stabilize the economy, but went rogue, mass-producing militarized models. To fight the Omnic threat, the United Nations created Overwatch, a peacekeeping task force of each nation's greatest heroes. Overwatch quickly ended the crisis.
But a question arose: Do Omnics deserve human rights? Conflict continued in many countries. Volskaya industries still battles rogue Omnics in Russia, the Australia Liberation Front destroyed the Omnic's down under but left the central lands irradiated. Only in the African nation of Numbani do humans and Omnics live together peacefully, making them a target of foreign hostility.
In the aftermath, Overwatch was accused of corruption, of no longer keeping the world safe. Overwatch headquarters was destroyed in a mysterious explosion, its leader and second in command were lost and Overwatch disbanded.
The world is still a dangerous place. You must bring together a team of heroes. Recruit former Overwatch members, heroes inspired by the former peacekeepers, or even hardened criminals as you fight to protect the people from the fallout of a 30 year old conflict.
