'Overwatch' Reveals "Bastet" Event and Limited-Time Skin

'Overwatch' Reveals

On Monday, Overwatch creator Activision-Blizzard released the short story titled Bastet, which focuses on two of the game's heroes, Soldier 76 and Ana. You must have been curious.

Many players have celebrated Soldier: 76's news, but others think revealing him as LGBT almost three years after the game's release feels like an afterthought. In the Reflections comic, where Tracer was revealed as gay, Blizzard slipped in the same photo of Vincent and Soldier: 76. During the event, players can win special rewards in addition to the normal reward boxes. She happens upon the wounded Jack while out in the streets of Cairo and brings him to her home.

Ana was unconvinced. In the early days, Jack talked about him often, floating a dream that the war would end quickly, and maybe he'd have a chance to return to a normal life.
This was possibly the same photograph as in the new short story, though nobody understood its significance at the time.

That bit concludes with 76 lamenting that "Vincent deserved a happier life than the one I could give him". Jack sighed. "We both knew that I could never put anything above my duty". Ana chimes in, "Relationships don't work out so well for us, do they?" The final moments of the story also indicated that Ana and her husband's relationship may have not worked out as it emphasizes that she no longer wears her wedding ring. Blizzard had previously revealed in the Overwatch Revelations web comic that Tracer was gay when she spent her Christmas with her girlfriend Emily.

But turns out we were quick to make assumptions and he's actually our new gay icon.

He's one of the most popular characters in the online shooter, which has millions of players worldwide. Yet LGBTQ backstories never seem to get an overt nod.

It's not really made clear whether Soldier: 76 is homosexual, bisexual, or something else entirely, but it's a pretty solid indication about the character's background. It's revealed that the other man, Vincent, was once a love interest for Soldier 76, but they ultimately broke up.
