A lore-based comic was finally posted!
If you haven't read it yet, please give it a go!
Long rambling ahead I'm so sorry I'm just really excited
If you know me personally, you probably know that I got into Overwatch because of the lore and I can rant about it all day (This is also, however, why I suck at the game so much).
I can also rant about how much I hate Micheal Chu and how I think he's an awful writer, but I'll save that for another day since this is the first time we got some lore in months.
Some spoilers ahead. But there's a lot in the comic that I think can be assumed will be part of the next event.
Some things we can assume will be in the event, skin-wise:
The original Overwatch Uniforms: (minus Captain Amari, Blackwatch Reyes, & Strike Commander Morrison)
and a possible (?) Blackwatch Genji?:
That's all I can guess for the event at the moment...As for other really cool things from the comic (correct me if I'm wrong on some of these, the lore's writing is really inconsistent and continues to be so I might get a bit confused):
Genji and Tracer's accidents happened around the same time, and it can be assumed Genji and Hanzo's fight happened before Tracer's slipstream accident.
Tracer joined in Overwatch's late years, when they were in pretty hot water.
Genji was part of Blackwatch. He seems really angry around this time, so he's likely still recovering and is Extra Edgy during this period (I would be too tho)
Mercy's hair is shorter than expected! (she has my haircut so I'm more excited than I should be. Its a gay haircut. VERY lesbian...)
Mercy and Soldier don't seem to get along very well?
- Most of the Overwatch designs we see now are fairly new, since they all seem to be in specific uniform.
- Similar to that, Mercy didn't always have an angel motif. You can make more bird jokes with this outfit. She looks like a bird....
Tracer got her catchphrase from Torbjörn.....
AAAAAND That's all I can think of now. I'm sure a lot more is going to come out when the event starts, though! I wasn't excited before but now I really am, and I hope other people are too!
EDIT: someone pointed this out on twitter
There's a VERY big needle at the end of
