Short Pick Of The Day: 'Reunion' by Blizzard Entertainment

This morning at BlizzCon, Blizzard debuted "Reunion", the latest Overwatch animated short.

While the giant LEGO model of Overwatch's iconic mech pilot, D.Va, has already been revealed, the LEGO Group has provided new images of the impressive build on site a BlizzCon. The first figure in Blizzard's new Overwatch Ultimate Figure line, Mercy, was also shown and scheduled for 2019. In it he meets up with his old compadres, the Deadlock Gang, led by Elizabeth Caledonia Ashe.

"An explosive train robbery gives McCree the chance to settle some unfinished business with a few former associates".

In addition to the levitating Snowball and the Genji Sword, Overwatch's heroes and environments have been adapted into LEGO form.

The Overwatch roster is set to get just that little bit bigger with the reveal of a new character for the popular hero shooter. Unlike those two, though, Ashe seems to retain much more of her situational awareness and mobility while aiming. She uses dynamite, a semi-automatic rifle named Viper and a blast back gun that can propel her into the air. The dynamite can be thrown and will detonate after a short period or shot to detonate immediately. The huge pushback can propel her into the air if shot at the ground and it can also push enemies away too similarly to Brigitte's flail. When he arrives, he charges toward enemies and pops them into the sky while firing at them with arm cannons.
