Con un comunicato sul blog ufficiale, Blizzard ha finalmente annunciato la data d’uscita del primo romanzo ufficiale di Overwatch “The Hero of Numbani” con protagonisti Orisa, la sua creatrice Efi Oladele, Doomfist e Lúcio. Insieme all’avviso c’è anche un estratto in anteprima.

Il libro uscirà in inglese dal 2 giugno, ed è già preordinabile in formato cartaceo. La prima volta che i giocatori avevano sentito parlare di questo libro era stato al New York ComiCon 2019, seguito poi dall’anteprima di Amazon. Attualmente non si ha notizia di un’edizione in italiano.

L’estratto presentato racconta di una discussione tra Efi e i suoi amici Naade e Hassana. Viene citata anche Sojourn, personaggio già previsto in Overwatch 2, e scopriamo che Efi prova una grande ammirazione per lei.

The first official Overwatch novel from critically acclaimed author Nicky Drayden is coming June 2! The Hero of Numbani tells the full story behind Efi and Orisa’s heroic origins, offers a glimpse into Talon’s machinations in Numbani, and provides some must-know hints at things to come. This action-packed tale is available to purchase from Scholastic now.

Read on for a summary of this captivating original novel followed by an sneak peek into Efi and Orisa’s adventure.

Book Summary:

In the technologically advanced African city of Numbani, in the not-so-distant future, humans live in harmony with humanoid robots known as omnics. But 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 better her community and improve people’s lives. But after she witnesses Doomfist’s catastrophic attack on the city’s OR15 security bots, Efi feels the call to build something greater: a true guardian of Numbani.

While Doomfist sows discord between humans and omnics, Efi engineers an intelligent and compassionate robot, Orisa, named after the powerful spirits who guide her people. Orisa has a lot to learn before she’s ready to defeat Doomfist, but Efi has some learning to do, too, especially when it comes to building — and being — a hero. With Doomfist rallying his forces, and the military powerless to stop him, can Efi mold Orisa into the hero of Numbani before it’s too late?

This action-packed novel features the fan-favorite characters Efi, Orisa, Doomfist, and Lúcio in an all-new, original story straight from the minds of the Overwatch game team and critically acclaimed author Nicky Drayden!

Book Excerpt:

The Hero of Numbani will be available in stores June 2 and is available to pre-purchase now.
