The latest animated short for Overwatch that was shown off during Blizzard’s Reveal Ceremony at Gamescom today centered around the Chinese Climatologist Mei during her time on Ecopoint: Antarctica. Back in November after the recent release of the Ecopoint: Antarctica arcade map, we stated we believed Mei was the most deserving character to receive an Overwatch animated short next. So needless to say nine months later we are pretty excited about the release of “Rise and Shine”.

A lot of background information and can inferred from this ten minute short, so let’s go through it and breakdown everything this video can tell us contextually about the larger Overwatch narrative as a whole as well as some background for Mei to better understand the short itself.
