I just cannot get enough of these animated shorts. They're incredible. And FINALLY, after all the args and waiting: Sombra!
Blizzard have been consistent in building up the mythos and world of Overwatch with their comics, the in-game dialogue and of course, these incredible animated shorts.
With The Last Bastion, Blizzard took a character that was almost immediately universally loathed by the community upon launch and turned him into not only a loveable, sympathetic character, but made him somewhat tragic. It's a tremendous turn and a fantastic short.
A new character for Overwatch!? Yes!!
Ana looks like she's going to be a very interesting addition to the game with her abilities. Sniper healing is great for when you hate your teammates but don't want to lose but she also has a stun similar to McCree. Plus, she's Pharah's Mom, which adds a whole lot to the lore.
I also love that Blizzard has chosen to to take a page out of Mad Max: Fury Road's book by having a badass "older" woman be the newest hero. The way they're weaving a backstory together with the animated shorts along with the comics is so completely engrossing to me.
I cannot wait to learn more about Ana and I'm *definitely* looking forward to trying her out!!
The hits just keep on comin'. These are SO great.
