Check Out The Latest Overwatch Short, The Last Bastion

“The Last Bastion” follows the forgotten battle automaton, Bastion, as it unexpectedly reactivates after laying dormant in the wilderness for over a decade. Fascinated by its unfamiliar surroundings, the curious omnic begins to investigate, but quickly discovers its core combat programming may have a different directive…

This is the 5th animated short for the game so far and was released during GamesCom in Germany. The short of course follows Bastion, the last of his kind, and a fellow friend.

Bastion’s back story noted that he was part of a robot army that was created to protect the human race, but they turned against them. Eventually Bastion, the last of his army, was shut down and laid dormant for many years. When he awoke he was curious about the world and the environment he was in.

This new short is leading up to a new map release titled Eichenwalde that will release in September. The new map is a payload/assault map with an abandon village environment. The map is located in Stuttgart, Germany. This is of course the home of Bastion, where he awakened after being shut down.
