Now Playing: Overwatch - "Shooting Star" D.Va Animated Short

Blizzard has released a new animated short for Overwatch called "Shooting Star" and this time the focus is much-loved Meka pilot D.Va. With Gamescom 2018 going on in Germany, the short was shown at Korea Fanfest, where Blizzard also debuted a brand-new Overwatch map. The video starts with a news report about D.Va, who has become a national hero by defending her nation from the Omnics.

Although the news report says D.Va, whose real name is Hana Song, is enjoying the fruits of her efforts by living a life of glitz and glamour, she's actually shown at home, repairing her Meka and chowing down on non-copyright infringing Doritos. D.Va is always thinking about how her country is relying on her to keep them safe, and this means she isn't able to relax. And she's proven right, as the enemy Omnics launch an assault. You can see what happens next in the video above.

The new Overwatch map is also themed after D.Va and set in South Korea. Players will have to duke it out over Control points across three locations. "Explore the serene setting of the Sanctuary, surrounded by an ancient temple, beautiful gardens, and historic architecture," Blizzard said. "Clash in the bustling metropolis of Downtown, where players will fight across a busy PC bang, flashy karaoke bar, and central light rail station (just watch out for the train).

I'm not really into multiplayer shooters or Overwatch in general, but man oh man, the animated shorts they release are sooooo good! I could basically watch 'em forever. It makes me wonder why there isn't a single-player mode (or cooperative PvE mode at least) available. I'd play that! I would imagine just about everyone else on the planet would also play it. The way Blizzard handles story and character development just begs for a playable campaign; the animated shorts are amazing, but I would love to see Blizzard bring the storytelling into the actual game. That would bring me on board and then, who knows? Maybe I'd get into the multiplayer too.

So disappointed in this short, it was extremely forgettable. Had to watch the Sombra one again to cheer up.

Finally D.Va got a short, and that new skin looks pretty cool. Also Busan is not a 2cp map. Today was a good day.
