Blizzard fans that are either going to BlizzCon or have a Virtual Ticket for the event are in luck, as they’ll be getting a special portrait of D.Va from Overwatch, along with a D.Va voice pack. Both will be available to use in StarCraft 2 as an in-game avatar and an announcer pack.
D.Va will be joining the other avatars and voice packs in the game that will be available for announcing when Starcraft 2 patch 3.7 comes out. These include such characters as Jim Raynor, Swann the mechanic, Abathur, Alarak, Artanis, and Kerrigan. Considering D.Va’s backstory in her native game of Overwatch, D.Va’s inclusion into StarCraft 2 is actually kind of sensible, lore-wise.
Why? Because the entire reason D.Va is piloting the mech that she has in the game is because she showed a lot of skill as a gamer, which has helped her to defend her home country of South Korea against an Omnic that periodically comes out of the ocean to wreak havoc. In fact, her StarCraft World Championship Series profile has even said that she was a professional StarCraft player.
The D.Va voice pack will eventually be released as a buyable thing for StarCraft players, but the specific D.Va portrait will only be available for people that attend BlizzCon or have a Virtual Ticket.
If you buy the D.Va voice pack, you can expect to hear her commenting on your games as they progress, and maybe even taunting your opponent. However, there’s likely no chance that she’ll also be joining the game as a possible commander in the game’s co-op.
BlizzCon will be happening from November 4 to November 5, so if you’ve gotten your tickets, whether real or virtual, you’ll be able to get her portrait and voice pack when it’s announced at BlizzCon. In the meantime, the rest of us will just have to wait until it becomes buyable.
