Overwatch released a new short today, Shooting Star, featuring D.Va. It’s a quick short about her saving the town, Busan, by defeating the Kishin. This clip shows all of her latest moves; fusion cannons, defense matrix, boosters, micro missiles, light gun, and even self-destruct. Let’s take a quick second to recap on some of her hold moves, remember when self-destruct used to kill D.Va?!?! Thank you for buffs. It would be kind of cool if she could fly for longer but, then she may be busted; so I’m happy with the way she is right now.
Overwatch really want to show the authenticity in this map to the point where they traveled to Busan, South Korea and captured actual sound from the city to insert in the game. This is a quick peek at the new map, Busan. Jeff Kaplan, Overwatch director, announced today via a video at Gamescom.
There are three areas for heroes and villains to duke it out in Busan. One, the Sanctuary is in a temple packed in with traditional Korean elements.

Second, downtown with shows and karaoke bars plus a deadly train that passes over the control point – that’s going to require some quick reflexes and multitasking.
Third, Meka Base with moving walls along the control point to create cover and be a hindrance.
Along with this map the patch includes:

– Earthshatter: Consistently hits enemies near walls
No longer hits enemies that enter the damage cone after the wave has passed that area
No longer damages enemies behind barriers even if the barrier is later dropped or destroyed
Will always travel up inclines and around the payload
Developer Comments: We’ve given Earthshatter a complete overhaul to combat inconsistencies with its performance. These changes will make Earthshatter’s behavior more predictable and effective.
