As Overwatch is a competitive multiplayer game where players face off against each other in matches, it’s hard to have an ongoing storyline, or at least not through more traditional methods of completing quests, like in World of Warcraft. However Blizzard has made up for this by creating backstories for their characters as well as using mediums like animated shorts and comics to tell Overwatch’s story.

In fact if you’re itching to learn more about the world of Overwatch, Blizzard has recently launched a new Overwatch comic that will star Zarya and Sombra. According to the comic’s description, “Aleksandra Zaryanova is on a critical mission to eliminate Russia’s greatest threat, an elusive hacker known as Sombra.”

“The pursuit takes Zarya around the globe, but all her contacts share the same intel: they don’t know anything. With her trail cold and her leads exhausted, she reluctantly agrees to the only option she has left—a partnership with an omnic. Butting heads all the way, the two reluctant allies hone in on their target, unaware of the secret they will soon uncover…”

Dubbed “Searching”, this is the fifthteenth Overwatch comic that Blizzard has released to date. The comic itself is a free read and if you are interested in learning more about Overwatch and its characters, head on over to Blizzard’s website for the read.
