We got a new map, plus an animated short and action figure dedicated to Overwatch’s favorite mecha pilot heroine.

During the Overwatch Fan Festival in Seoul, South Korea, Blizzard made some reveals that are focused towards everyone’s favorite South Korean pro esports and MEKA pilot D.Va. First was the showcase of the latest Overwatch animated short featuring her, this told her story of her role as both a professional gamer and soldier in defending her country from Omnic attacks. You can watch the short below:

Second was the reveal of the newest map in the game. The Busan map will feature three locations that offer different strategies whether you are from the attacking or defending side.

Explore the serene setting of the Sanctuary, featuring an ancient temple, beautiful gardens, and historic architecture.
Clash in the bustling metropolis of Downtown, where players will fight across a busy PC bang, flashy karaoke bar, and central light rail station…but watch out for the train!
Contest your position in the MEKA Base—home of South Korea’s frontline defense against the gwishin omnic attacks.

The map is available at the PTR server right now and will be launching to the public servers soon.

And finally, Good Smile Company has announced a Figma action figure for D.Va, complete with an array of accessories like her trusty Light Gun as well as her favorite Nano-Cola soda and headset. It also includes swappable head parts for different facial expressions and an alternate head that features her wearing a cap similar to that from the Animated Short and some changeable hands to recreated some of her popular emoticons. Preorder will start on August 31 and no release date nor price tag has been revealed, but it’s possible to be on the same price of JPY 7,222 (before tax) with the rest of the Overwatch Figma figures.
