I should probably preface talking about all of this by saying that Reinhardt is my most played hero in Overwatch and the hero I would most consider to be my idol. Being a man who loved knights, chivalry and positivity Reinhardt certainly speaks to me.
The last thing that was shown at the Blizzcon Overwatch panel was a new animated short featuring the jolly grandad knight Reinhardt in his youth fighting alongside his fellow crusaders as they fight off the omnic threat. Now while I do adore this short, in fact it’s probably one of my favourites, I didn’t get as emotionally involved as some other people, perhaps due to the fairly generic sacrifice storyline. However what this did very well was show just how human Reinhardt is. He wasn’t always the glorious beacon of human kindness and was actually bashful and arrogant at one point. This has made his current character traits seem more developed, he has seen war and has become a different man from it. If anything, this short made me love him even more, and of course Balderich! Give it a watch if you are interested, you won’t be dissapointed!
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
