Blizzard Releases New Overwatch Comic, Starring Torbjorn and Bastion

March 9, 2017Written by Martin Patiño


One of the best things about relatively new, team-based shooter Overwatch is its amazing lore. And one of the ways the developer is sharing this lore is through occasional digital comics for players to read that share a bit of the background of some of the game’s characters.

The latest comic, which came out yesterday, stars two of the game’s most polarizing characters, Bastion, with his loyal bird companion Ganymede, and the turret-building Torbjorn. The comic is set sometime after the Omnic Crisis and sometime after Bastion’s trailer video. It covers the events that led to the two heroes meeting for the first time and how they became companions.

At times, the digital comics for Overwatch are used to tease the announcement or release of a new character. But with the recent announcement of Orisa, the game’s latest character, and the expectation that Doomfist will be the next character to be unveiled after Orisa, it’s unlikely that this new comic has anything to do with new character released.
