New Overwatch Short Sheds Light on Mei’s Origin

Mei, the friendly endothermic scientist of Overwatch, got her very own animated short on Wednesday, which reveals that she woke up from cryo-sleep after nine years to a very different world.

We also get to see how Mei and Snowball became such good buds, and how/why Mei built her Endothermic Blaster that we’ve all come to either love or hate.

Blizzard recently announced that a new map will be making its way to Overwatch in the form of the Junkyard. It’s located in Australia — the home of Junkrat and Roadhog, featuring a Mad Max/post-apocalyptic style. Learn more about the new map here.
