This year at BlizzCon, there will be a nine-foot-tall D.Va mech made out of thousands of Lego bricks watching over the proceedings.
LEGO constructed the gargantuan statue out of 145,276 LEGO bricks, of which, 48,853 are pink and altogether the monster weighs a whopping 1,256 lbs. That’s a lot of D.Va.
With such a massive homage to Overwatch on display, it would make sense for Blizzard to announce some big Overwatch news as well, just what that news could be though has been the subject of intense speculation leading up to this weekend.
One theory is that there will be a new PvE story mode introduced, which could follow D.Va on a mission with the MEKA squad, introduced with the Busan map and D.Va’s “Shooting Star” cinematic short.
There wouldn’t be better a way of introducing a new D.Va-focused game mode then to have a massive D.Va statue watching over BlizzCon.
There’s bound to be some big things announced at BlizzCon, but fans will have to wait until Friday and the start of BlizzCon to find out what they actually are.
BlizzCon begins at 11 am PT with the Opening Ceremonies, and there’s a block of time from 1:30 pm to 2:15 pm PT especially for Overwatch news. Only fans who purchase a virtual ticket will be able to stream the event after the opening ceremony.
