Get a box of tissues ready for the latest Overwatch short… “The Last Bastion”

Bastion is a fairly divisive character in the Overwatch community. While the robot has a lot of fans, other players are less than thrilled to be matched up against a character that’s basically just a walking machine gun.

But Blizzard wants to rehabilitate his reputation with the latest animated short, “The Last Bastion.” Taking a few cues from The Iron Giant, “The Last Bastion” shows the robot rebelling against its programming and becoming something more than a living weapon. It’s a little manipulative, but it also totally works.

Overwatch is now available for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. And in case you missed them, be sure to check out Blizzard’s other animated shorts for Overwatch: “Recall,” “Alive,” “Dragons,” and “Hero.”
