Next Overwatch Short Will Feature Bastion. Zwee?

A brand new Overwatch animated short is coming out next week! The subject? Our favourite omnic, Play of the Game hero, Bastion!


Overwatch announced on their website that, during Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, they will be unveiling their fifth animated short named “The Lasy Bastion”. This short will show the origin of Bastion, found in the forest after sitting dormant for over a decade; overgrown and lonely.

The short will be revealed on Friday, August 19th at 2am (in Australia) on Overwatch’s website.


The last four animated short’s subjects were Soldier 76, Hanzo/Genji, Widowmaker/Tracer, and Winston.
