Overwatch has been a phenomenon since its debut on PCs and consoles, and you could easily argue that the lore and characters of the colourful world that Blizzard has created matter more than the game itself. Fans have been simply rabid over every little detail that offers a glimpse into the backstory of the diverse cast of characters. Such is the power of Blizzard’s world building prowess.
With so many characters in the Overwatch roster still lacking a proper backstory, Blizzard has been taking their time with each reveal, and it’s been well worth the wait. In case you’ve not seen, here’s the latest short focusing on Mei that is definitely Pixar-worthy.
Blizzard has also shown that story telling trumps all, no matter the form. Accompanying the release of the new Junkertown Escort map on the Overwatch PTR, Geek Culture is the proud to have the regional exclusive sneak peek at the next issue of Overwatch comics, issue #14, focusing on Junkertown!
The Omnic Crisis brought ruin to the Australian Outback.
Roadhog knows this better than most.
He’s seen it descend into an apocalyptic wasteland. Everything he once knew has been broken down, irradiated, or scrapped. Now all that’s left is Junkertown, the place that hermits, scavengers, brutes, and killers call home.
Roadhog hasn’t put it out of its misery. Not yet. But he’s been tempted…
It looks as though Roadhog is a harbinger of all things nasty in the Outback as a living embodiment of the boogeyman for adults. We can’t wait to see how things will unfold in the upcoming comic.
Once you’re done with that, there are 13 more issues to catch up on as well, do check them out over here: comic.playoverwatch.com
