New Overwatch animated short Dragons pits Hanzo versus Genji0 Comments
Blizzard's highly anticipated shooter may not feature a campaign, but that's not to say it's lacking in story. Much of Overwatch's plot is being revealed via external media, the fanciest of which is a series of CGI shorts. The latest of these shorts has now been released, this time starring an agile archer and a cyber ninja. Hanzo and Genji are two characters that you likely saw plenty of if you played the recent Overwatch beta, and now you can learn about their personal stories.
Titled Dragons, this new video is a very cool one, and definitely my favorite of the bunch so far. It's got a lot of cool action that really shows off what the characters can do, much like the previous short, Alive, which starred Widowmaker and Tracer. However, unlike its predecessor, this short does a really good job at showing the motivations of these characters and their backgrounds, something I felt was lacking in Alive. Last we heard there was one more animated short planned to release before Overwatch goes live on May 24, but right now I'd rather just have the game in my hands.
