Final Overwatch short lets Soldier 76 play the hero0 Comments
The final Overwatch animated short before the launch of the game later tonight was revealed yesterday, this time focusing on Soldier 76. He may not be the most unique of heroes, but he can certainly hold his own. Less action-packed than the previous two entries, this short follows a young girl living in the world of Overwatch, allowing you to see the current state of things through the eyes of a normal person.
As you can probably guess, the young girl finds herself in danger and who should appear to save her but the masked vigilante Soldier 76. Overall, this is probably my least favorite of the animated shorts. I like that it shows a bit of what society is like by showing how people look down on the robots, but I don't feel like I came out of it knowing any more about the character or Overwatch in general. Dragons still stands on top for me, showing off both character depth and fun action.
If, like many, you're eagerly awaiting the full release of Overwatch, then the good news is that you're almost there! The servers go live at 7 pm EST, so better go ahead and get that bathroom break in now and settle down for a long night of hero-swapping fun.
