Overwatch is getting a tie-in younger grownup novel about Efi Oladele, Orisa’s creator
Overwatch lore fiends are going to get an entire novel’s value in 2020.
Scholastic Inc is publishing The Hero of Numbani, marked as the primary Overwatch ebook, on Could 5, 2020. A web page for it has appeared on Amazon, and was noticed by Polygon.
It’s being written by Nicky Drayden, whose earlier works embrace The Prey of Gods, Mood: A Novel, and the Delightfully Twisted Tales collection.
Right here’s the whole description from the shop web page:
“Within the technologically superior African metropolis of Numbani, within the not-so-distant future, people stay in concord with humanoid robots often known as omnics. However when a terrorist tries to shatter that unity, a hero named Efi Oladele rises!
Efi has been making robots since she was little-machines to raised her group and enhance individuals’s lives. However after she witnesses Doomfist’s catastrophic assault on the town’s OR15 safety bots, Efi feels the decision to construct one thing better: a real guardian of Numbani.
Whereas Doomfist sows discord between people and omnics, Efi engineers an clever and compassionate robotic, Orisa, named after the highly effective spirits who information her individuals. Orisa has quite a bit to study earlier than she’s able to defeat Doomfist, however Efi has some studying to do, too, particularly relating to building-and being-a hero. With Doomfist rallying his forces, and the army powerless to cease him, can Efi mildew Orisa into the hero of Numbani earlier than it’s too late?
This action-packed novel options the fan-favorite characters Efi, Orisa, Doomfist, and Lúcio in an all-new, unique story straight from the minds of the Overwatch sport staff and critically acclaimed writer Nicky Drayden!”
Because the title is revealed by Scholastic, we’d anticipate a novel aimed toward youthful readers – however we’d count on that Overwatch followers will wish to learn it for brand spanking new bits of lore anyway.
