Overwatch’s best MEKA pilot is heading back to her roots.
Blizzard announced that D.Va will appear in StarCraft II as an announcer - you know that friendly voice that tells you that you need to build more supply depots?
This crossover wasn’t the biggest leap to make considering Blizzard’s other Overwatch ports of Tracer and Zarya into Heroes of the Storm, but this one feels especially appropriate given D.Va’s background as a StarCraft II pro gamer turned mech pilot:
As the omnic continued to adapt, it eventually disrupted MEKA's drone-control networks, forcing the military to place pilots in the mechs. Scrambling to find suitable candidates, the government turned to the country's professional gamers, who possessed the necessary reflexes and instincts to operate the mechs' advanced weapons systems. Top stars were drafted, including reigning world champion Hana Song, also known as "D.Va."
So when can you expect D.Va to yell at you to raise your APM? D.Va will be available as part of the Blizzcon 2016 Goody Bag to all Blizzcon live attendees, and also those who purchase virtual tickets for the event. So even if you weren’t part of the lucky few who pounded their F5 keys fast enough on Blizzcon ticket day, you can still add D.Va to your announcer collection during the event.
Head on over to the official announcement where you can preview some of her lines.
Your base is under attack! Stay cool.
You're engaging the opponent. Time to raise your APM!
You have max supply, attack move to win!
Your SCVs are getting wrecked!
Nukes ready. Nerf this!
Your SCV's been interrupted. Stupid Terran!
You're gonna need more Overlords.
You have a new queen. Show me those skills!
Zerg can't do that without creep. They're not that OP!
Your probes are getting owned!
Warp in complete. Boom!
That needs a power field. (How annoying)
