Overwatch‘s D.Va is the next hero to star in their very own animated short, topped off with a reveal of the hero shooter’s newest map.

D.Va’s animated short starts out a little obnoxiously melodramatic, but the action quickly picks up as Omnics attack her city and she’s forced to defend it. Her story is one of the longer Overwatch animated shorts, reaching almost eight minutes.

D.Va’s short debuted at a Gamescom-adjacent Korean fanfest, alongside a trailer that shows off Overwatch‘s next Control map. The map is set in Busan, which—as any participants in Overwatch‘s Summer Games 2018 event will recognize—is also the location of the newest Lúcioball arena. Instead of confining players to one small soccer field, however, this new Control map takes players to three different locations around D.Va’s home city, including a Sanctuary, D.Va’s MEKA base, and a Downtown city center.

Overwatch‘s Busan map does not yet have a release date, but the trailer assures us it is “coming soon”. It is now live on the game’s Public Test Region, and should hit the full game in several weeks.
