A new Overwatch comic hits today and it adds a layer to the Overwatch canon. The story centers around Tracer, McCree, Reaper, Solider:76, Ana, Mercy, and Winston seven years ago. Their plight is in their most difficult fight yet in King’s Row uprising.
“Seven years into Overwatch’s past—on the eve of a historic peace accord—King’s Row is seized by an extremist faction of robots known as Null Sector,” the comic introduction reads. “The British government forbids Overwatch from interceding, which means Strike Commander Jack Morrison must decide whether to disobey orders or stand by while thousands of lives are in peril.”
This comic released just a few days after a tease from Blizzard saying there is an upcoming announcement on April 11. You can check out the comic at the Overwatch website.
