Overwatch has been a massive hit since it’s release last year. Fans have attached themselves to their favorite hero, creating stories, merch and so much more. Blizzard Entertainment has embraced the fandom community by furthering the stories of these characters in animated shorts. This week we got Mei’s story in an emotional ride.

We see that Mei was a part of an expedition group who were caught in a massive storm. To avoid running out of supplies, the team goes into a hibernation. However, when Mei wakes up, it appears that things didn’t run as smoothly as planned.

For those, like myself, who don’t play Overwatch, it’s still an emotional story. You feel for Mei has she hits road block after road block. The most gut wrenching part is when the droid Snowball gives his all to help save Mei. I guess I have a really big soft spot for companion droids. Fans of the character will only love her more after seeing what she went through. 

Check out the video below and let us know what you think! Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more gaming fun.
