Overwatch Movie: Soldier 76


Depending on where you live in the world, Blizzard’s soon-to-be-mega-smash hit Overwatch will be ready (7pm EST on May 23rd to be exact). Even though Overwatch is a multiplayer game, that isn’t stopping Blizzard from utilizing its world-class story and animation department. The latest installment from Blizzard covers some of the story of Soldier 76. In this particular movie, Soldier 76 shows off his impressive skill-set against what appears to be some nasty individuals with some heavy equipment! And here I thought Soldier 76 was a bad guy but apparently that isn’t quite the case. Now I’ll be interested to see how Reaper’s story looks…it’ll probably be him and Soldier 76 rescuing kittens from trees and helping old people across the streets. Joking aside, hopefully Blizzard keeps these fantastic videos coming!

As per the video’s description, “Old habits die hard for one ex-Overwatch agent in our fourth and final animated short for this season: Hero. Watch it now and then begin your watch May 24 on PC, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One.

Hero follows the masked vigilante Soldier: 76 on a personal mission to Dorado where he’s set to investigate the illegal activities of the Los Muertos gang—but an unexpected complication threatens to compromise his objective.”
