Overwatch teases “The Junkers” in a new character trailer


Blizzard’s information blast continues for Overwatch, their upcoming, wonderfully bright and stylised shooter. The latest character tease is all about The Junkers, a pair of criminals who are currently enjoying an extended spree. 

Their information is shown in the style of a crime report in the trailer, with gangly explosives expert Jamison Fawkes, AKA Junkrat, shown off first. Next up is his partner in crime, the rotund, gimpy-looking Mako Rutledge, AKA Roadhog – “a remorseless killer who hides his face behind a mask.”
