Unlike previously released footage, the four new gameplay videos show unedited matches running at 1080p 60 frames per second.

Each of the videos focuses on a specific character. The first, Hanzo, is a Japanese mercenary and assassin that wields a bow and arrow. The second character, McCree is a wild west bounty hunter and outlaw that uses a revolver. Mercy, a guardian angel, functions as the games medic class, while Zenyatta is a mysterious cybernetic monk.

Take an in-depth look at them in the videos below.

Overwatch is Blizzard's first new franchise in 17 years, with development on the PC title being led by Jeff Kaplan, a former World of Warcraft game director.

Blizzard has described Overwatch as a "pick-up-and-play" FPS that throws players together and makes them battle in futuristic maps in places such as London and Egypt. The company's overall goal with the game is to bring the developer's "easy-to-learn, hard-to-master" mantra to the FPS space.

"With every new Blizzard game, we look at our favorite aspects of a genre and put our own spin on things," Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime said when Overwatch was first announced.

"Our goal withOverwatch is to create an awesome FPS experience that’s more accessible to a much wider audience while delivering the action and depth that shooter fans love."

Blizzard previously released a very impressive Pixar-style CG trailer for Overwatch.
