Final Overwatch Animated Short This Season Stars Soldier 76

Right before the launch of Blizzard's shooter, we get one final look into the game's story.


On the eve of Overwatch's worldwide release, Blizzard put out an animated short detailing a little more of the story behind the mysterious Soldier 76.

The video is labeled as the "fourth and final animated short for this season." The video describes "Hero" as a "personal mission" where Soldier 76 investigates illegal goings on in the town of Dorado.

The previous shorts dealt with Widowmaker stalking her prey in London, the backstory of Hanzo and Genji, and "Recall" recounts the events leading up to the beginning of Overwatch.

You can watch the new Hero trailer in the video below.
