Even though Blizzard has its own big party in a few months, the Overwatch developer has confirmed it’ll have a big presence at Gamescom in Germany next week, too. The festivities include – among other things – the fifth animated short for the game, titled The Last Bastion.
*zhwee beep boop beep*
The short film watches Bastion as the inquisitive, transforming robot reactivates after lying dormant for more than a decade in the wilderness. The forgotten battle automaton is fascinated by its unfamiliar surroundings and begins to investigate. However, Blizzard warns us that its core combat programming may well have a different plan in mind…
To watch The Last Bastion, you either need to head to the Blizzard booth in Hall 7 of the Koelnmesse convention centre, where Gamescom is being held this year. Can’t get there? Don’t worry! The video will also appear online at gamescom.blizzard.com on August 18 at 9am PT.
