Blizzard Entertainment had released a new animated short and announced a new upcoming map. Both are themed after South Korea’s favorite gamer and MEKA pilot Hana Song, aka D.Va
The animated short, Shooting Star, gives us a look at D.Va’s life before Overwatch. She is both South Korea’s most popular gamer and protector against the Omnics. Take a look at the short below:
Also announced today is a new map based on D.Va’s home. Busan will be a control map with three points to fight for control over: “Sanctuary,” Downtown, and MEKA base.
Explore the serene setting of the Sanctuary, surrounded by an ancient temple, beautiful gardens, and historic architecture. 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). Contest for position in MEKA Base—home of South Korea’s frontline defense against the gwishin omnic attacks: D.Va and the rest of the MEKA squad. Teams must fight to hold each of the three stages to establish complete control of the city that refuses to surrender its way of life to any threat.
