Overwatch’s Hana “D.Va” Song, a former pro StarCraft player turned mech pilot in Blizzard’s hero-based shooter, is coming to StarCraft 2. She’ll be appearing in Blizzard’s real-time strategy game as one of StarCraft 2’s add-on announcers.
StarCraft 2’s D.Va announcer pack will be included as part of this year’s BlizzCon goodie bag. Blizzard fans who attend BlizzCon 2016 or purchase a virtual ticket for the event will get the D.Va announcer pack (and her portrait).
Blizzard has a preview of D.Va’s announcer pack on its website. You can listen to samples of her game narration — examples include “Your probes are getting owned!” and “Nuke’s ready. Nerf this!” — on Battle.net.
Blizzard is adding announcer packs to StarCraft 2 as part of patch 3.7. D.Va will join Abathur, Raynor, Artanis, Kerrigan, Swann and Alarak as the first non-StarCraft character to provide in-game commentary on your StarCraft 2 matches. It’s likely she won’t be the last, as a survey reportedly distributed by Blizzard indicated Warcraft characters and celebrities such as Morgan Freeman and Snoop Dogg might become StarCraft 2 announcers in the future.
BlizzCon 2016 will take place Nov. 4-5 in Anaheim, California.
