When it comes to playing Overwatch, Bastion is a great match for any team. With his sentry mode put in an ideal location, he can defend almost any spot, blowing away opponents with his canon and any damage he takes, he can self repair. His ultimate also allows him to mow down through another team quickly, blasting away in tank mode.
Obviously as a robot, he doesn’t really speak, so it is hard to know what he is thinking, or even feeling. Blizzard and Overwatch have now released an animated short for Bastion, it is truly great. Starting off with a WALL-E / The Iron Giant vibe, Bastion is seen waking up in a forest, covered in moss, seemingly growing on him for many years. Woken up a friendly bird, that many players of Overwatch may recognize, he begins to explore the world around him.
I wouldn’t want to spoil the rest for readers, but note that is a anything but a waste of 7 minutes. Especially if you are a fan of Overwatch and Bastion. You’ll get to see more of his past and maybe get a little tug on your heart strings. Check it out below if you want to know what I’m talking about.
