A brand-new collection of short stories has just been announced by the Overwatch team.

The new lore series will release on Aug. 2, 2022 and is available for purchase at retailers such as Amazon and, according to HammehLore on Twitter, readable for free on the Overwatch website.

As of right now, players don't really know much about Reaper due to the lack of lore that's come with him.

Overwatch has revealed a brand-new story with Reaper lore, written by Brandon Easton.

Easton wrote, "Stunned that I was able to write a Reaper story for the upcoming Overwatch Short Stories collection. Gabriel Reyes is one of my favorite characters in the OW universe so this was a blast!"

His tweet can be viewed below.

Reaper lore has long-since been awaited by fans, so players of the game are excited to hear more about his background.

Other heroes that will be included in the story are on the cover and are as follows:

  • Reaper
  • Mercy
  • Symmetra
  • Ana
  • Baptiste

This comic is the first Reaper lore story, which means the character will most likely get an in-game event to go along with the release of the comic in August of 2022.
