Blizzard multiplayer shooter Overwatch gets an old Swedish dwarf


Blizzard’s first new franchise in 17 years, Overwatch, keeps adding to its cast of original characters. Well, as original as grouchy dwarves and Man With No Name knock off cowboys can be, anyways.

The defensive-minded Torbjörn is a 57-year-old Swede. You can read more about him here or just watch the trailer. It’s kind of cool when an individual character’s “gameplay preview” is over seven minutes.

More old men in video games, please! And not just token wise or creepy ones. What’s this, No Country? Give me them silver foxes.
