At Gamescom today Blizzard has unveiled a brand new animated short for Overwatch which highlights everyone’s favorite Korean Pro-Gamer, D.Va!
The latest short, titled Shooting Star, gives us some background on D.Va, star of the MEKA squad. It appears the Limelight isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be, especially after taking her team to victory during the last battle. Now she’s working endlessly to ensure she’s prepared for the next Omnic attack which comes a little sooner than planned.
After a fast-paced battle in the sky against Omnic, D.Va and MEKA seem to come to blows against the foe. With defeat only seconds away, D.Va and her pal come up with a plan to overload the reactor in MEKA, and the rest is Overwatch history.
Check out the short below:
In addition to the new short, Blizzard has also announced that Overwatch‘s brand new map, D.Va’s home city of Busan, is now available on the PTR. From now, players can battle for control of three locations, Sanctuary, Downtown, and MEKA Base.
A video of the map can be seen below:
